Christine’s fur-trimmed satin kimono!

My favorite of Christine’s stylish Salvation Army thrift store finds is the fur-trimmed satin kimono-style jacket!

This purchase taught Christine a valuable lesson: if you like it, grab it before it’s gone. You see, Christine saw five jackets just like this one on the rack one evening after work.

She decided to think about it and come back later if she wanted it. When she returned to the store over the weekend, there was only one left on the rack!

She almost lost out on the opportunity to own this beautiful piece. What a sad loss that would have been!

The kimono-style jacket and sash (called an obi in Japanese) were a grand total of $4.99.
