"" FutureLint (I have nothing to wear!): I am the luckiest girl.

I am the luckiest girl.

Why am I smiling, you ask... it's a scroll-down reveal!


Gaaaaaaaa! Check the boots! I have NEVER had any luck finding boots at thrift stores, and I go a LOT. I found one pair of cowboy boots, four years ago. That's it! UNTIL NOW! Last night I made a quick stop by the Goodwill and found these deadstock gold-studded red suede boots, IN MY SIZE!!! $14! (which I was appalled by anyway - thrift stores, stop raising your prices because I hate fighting the crowds on half-price day!)

In more "Gaaaaaa!" news, someone from the Walker Art Center (the modern art museum in Minneapolis) emailed me because they have seen my t-shirts and are interested in selling them in the gift shop as part of their Local Artist T-shirt Mart this spring!!!!!!!! I emailed her back last night, so I'll let you in on the details when I know them!

I might explode and cover you all in sticky, gooey, honey happiness! Duck and cover!

edit: buzzkill = Alexander McQueen is dead?!?! How sad...

You have to remember that most thrift store are also charities and give out charitable donations. Goodwill is a non-profit org. that employs mainly people with disabilites or of limit skills for employment. they also help provide training and useful skills for other jobs. the more successful tehy are, the more they can do for others.
