Hello Friends! Wow. This week has been crazy. There’s a lot going on behind the scenes here at SlipsKnute, as I’m trying to back up my blog and redesign it. Both of these things have taken much, much, much longer than I anticipated. I want to give a huge shout-out to my high school chum, Jessica for helping me get the backup done, and another huge shout-out to my friend, Jamie who is helping me totally revamp and rebrand this blog to make it something truly special. I can’t wait to share it with you!
So…I’m getting by with a little help from my friends. :)
Wannabe Wednesday completely failed to happen this week. :/ An unexpected towing incident (click the link if you want to see me publicly out myself for being a jerk) killed that. I promise to make next week’s WW super-awesome to compensate for this. :)
Now that you’ve been thoroughly debriefed, Let’s unroll the first Thrift Score Thursday of the New Year!
While digging through the $1 handbags at one of my fave thrift stores, I found this beauty!
Don’t you just love that beautiful black and white print? How could anyone have given this up?
Oh wait…there’s a surprise inside!
Those of you who live outside of South Carolina may not get what’s so special about this clutch. Luckily, I did.
This is a handmade Sophie Clutch, made and designed by a local artist by the name of Sally Peek. You can check out her other Nana bags right here. Finding this bag in a dollar box ‘o bags is a huge fluke, and an amazing bit of luck. Her designs are incredibly popular here, and the only way someone would have given this bag up is if they just didn’t know what it was.
Seriously…read this article about her. She’s awesome.
Finds like this don’t happen very often. I just hope I haven’t used up all my thrift karma for the year in this one trip!
