Consignment Shop Wonder

Okay, I have to come clean with you:  I BOUGHT something…

As in, I paid more than .99 cents for it! :/ I have technically broken my 2014 goal for not buying any “new” clothing on myself.

To be exact, I paid $28.

IMG_4045As you can see I bought a couple other items… if you’re gonna break a rule than why not break it with panache?

I love this consignment shop. I’ve shopped/sold my items there for years. And you can see from the receipt, you can get just as good a deal on gently used clothes as you can at the “other” thrift shops. Those items usually have stains, holes, and smells… ew. You don’t necessarily have to go to a “bargain” center to get a legitimate bargain is what I’m trying to say 🙂

I mean, seriously, does this most spectacular vintage winter coat LOOK like it came from a “bargain” bin?


I LOVE this thing!



Santa brought me a tripod for Christmas. I was testing it out for my pictures. Now, I don’t have to bother family or random strangers for an “after” pic. It’s a beautiful thing!


AND… now we have a way to take group shots at home. Yah for tripods. It’s truly the gift that keeps on giving.

So… I broke my goal a few days out from New Year’s. What can ya do? “Nothing, so don’t worry about it,” as my friend Amy always says. Accidental Seamstress will have many new goals for 2015 (that I intend to actually keep). I hope you’ll stick around to see whether or not I live up to my own challenges.

I hope everyone had a very Merry Christmas. I hope our Jewish friends had a Happy Hanukkuh. I hope the “rest of us” that celebrate Festivus survived the “Feats of Strength” with a little dignity.

Happy Holidays
