The Rack At The Back!

For a few brief moments….cool breezes are blowing in San
Antonio.  I cannot really call 55 degrees
cold…but cool, for sure.  Since our time
of cold is a very short window, it is difficult to justify spending big bucks
on cold weather clothes…especially cashmere…even as wonderful as it is.

The white cashmere sweater I am wearing here was (believe it
or not) one of my July birthday presents from Gigi.  We found it for $5 at the back of a
consignment shop on a “last chance” clearance rack.  The cashmere scarf was at a thrift shop for
$1.99!! Brand new, tags still on.

Both have the wonderful soft feel of cashmere….all the
luxury…without the price tag.  I highly
recommend that you look for that rack at the back of consignment shops.  I know to some it communicates….NO ONE WANTS
THESE ITEMS, WHY SHOULD I?
…but you just never know what little treasure you
might find there.  It is worth taking the
time!
Have a warm, wonderful Tuesday!

  1. I absolutely love the scarf and living here in Alberta where it's seriously cold already, I'm really quite envious!

    I head straight for the sales racks at the back of just about any clothing store. You never know what you'll find there. I hardly ever pay full price even for brand new clothes but second hand and consignment stores are definitely the best!

  2. I love shopping the back racks of the thrift stores! That's where I find many unwanted items to refashion into something fun for very little investment. Now I just need more time to sew everything. Thanks for all of your great posts! I read them but don't find the time to comment often! Love all your stuff!

  3. Last year I found the most wonderful cashmere sweater at a consignment store. It zipped up the front and the collar was studded with rhinestones. It was fabulous, but the holidays were long over and I couldn't see storing it until the winter. It was $50, not exactly cheap. I wish I had bought it though.
    I can't wear wool as it makes me itch. Acrylic is gross and cotton not warm enough. Cashmere is perfect but oh the prices!

  4. OHHH those $5 deals are the best.. and for cashmere too!! good find Pam!!! I love finding great deals like this, its the thrill of the chase 🙂
