The Coats are Thrifted

They’ve got the cold-weather stuff out at the Salvation Army on Duke Street, and Wednesday was (is always) Customer Appreciation Day, so I got 25% off. Check it out, got them all for less than $55!

This thing is just awesome. It’s a leather overcoat, and in it I will star in a western, hopefully set in outer space. Once I remove the hideous buttons and replace them, of course. One must dress well in space, too.

Then I got a few presents, because I like other people.

The rest are in the gallery, of course. Hurrah for fall.

    Hi! I’m just curious, what’s the address for that salvation army? Is it near King St Metro? Love the Blog!

    Thanks- it’s actually on the Little River Turnpike part of Duke Street, past 395. Almost as close to Annandale as you can be in Alexandria, really. The address is 6528 Little River Tpke, Alexandria, VA 22312. Happy Thrifting!

    I don’t think it’s Metro accessible. We brought boxes of stuff there before we moved from DC. It’s probably one of the best thrift stores I’ve been to.

    Looks like you’ve got some good finds! There aren’t thrift stores in B.A. 😦

    No thrift stores in BA! That’s…what do they do with old clothes? Do you think starting one would be successful?
