Finders, Keepers: The Playsuit

When you think of a garage/yard sale – what goes through your mind? A greasy lawn-mower, an old bike, a chipped tea-set, barbie with all her hair chopped off, 3 toasters, blunt kitchen knives and a ripped up couch? I bet you don’t think 1950’s-style polka-dot playsuit!

When I spotted the dots from afar – I scurried over to snatch it out from the pile of clothes on the floor where it lay…It was too good to be true! Perfect fit, even more perfect price ($4!).
The only thing I could fault on it is that there’s a button missing down the front of it, but for now I’m rocking an old thin black belt to cover that spot. I think it works pretty well!

When you’re second-hand shopping, don’t forget to keep an eye out for garage sales. Sure, they may be a little dated. And it may even be a bit a bit awkward, rummaging through someone’s belongings that they don’t deem worth keeping… while they watch. But you never know who’s trash will be your newest treasure.
Until next time, be younique, be adventyourous, and be youtiful
