good point CB! I buy about 80% of my clothing at thrift shops; great way to save and get very good quality labels! I go through my shoes pretty hard from all the walking and hiking I do and can't be buying flimsy plastic crap at Payless. I hunt the bargain racks and sales and often get new shoes at a fraction of their regular price. Then again I have small feet and can get my size leftover. I am wearing a pair of $140 Fluevog boots that cost me $50. Since new clothing for women is so expensive and much of it poorly made I would rather get something second hand and know the label is a quality one...and vintage clothes? They don't make stuff like that anymore; army surplus, old cashmere, vintage leather, etc. Great stuff and a great way to reduce, reuse and recycle!!!
