|My $2 Jacket!|
It was a lazy afternoon at a shopping mall. We were just chilling out after a meal and wandered into some clothing shops. "$2!", screamed a sign in a quiet corner of the shop. Curious, I went to take a peek to see what junk they were selling at ridiculously low prices. There were some owl ornaments with paint chipped off at some places, T-shirts with holes, bikinis with the straps sewn at the wrong place, stained clothes...... you get the idea?
Well, I kept poking around this area for fun, hoping to find some cute fabric for my sewing projects. Then I dug up this jacket! It was a casual office jacket that was fully lined! I tried it on even though it was a size too small and it fit!! Getting excited, I checked the tag to see why it was in the sale bin and it said: "hole". After looking quite hard, I finally found a small little hole at the elbow, nothing that I couldn't fix. Anyway, who would notice such a teeny tiny hole?
I was beaming all the way home with my $2 catch, telling this incredulous tale to unbelieving family and friends :)
