Promoting frugality as a way to live a simple and prosperous life.
By pure accident, I found a beautiful mint condition vintage Kate Spade satin purse just staring me in the face while I was zooming around Goodwill last week. Anyone that knows me knows that I don’t care about designer labels (anymore). But this purse literally hit me in the face; it must have just been thrown on to the display rack and the eBay hunters hadn’t had a chance to grab it yet. So, I did. For $15, it’s just lovely. It’s made in the U.S., and it was less expensive than the great deal on the Vera Wang purse I bought from Kohl’s (made in China, of course)! So, I don’t need the Kate Spade purse. But, I don’t know what to do with it: keep it or sell it? I did my due diligence and researched the heck out of it and yup, it’s authentic. (Did I mention it’s lovely!?) If I use it, then I can’t sell it. But if I sell it, I can’t use it. I could get a bit of pocket money if I sold it, but not that much to sway me in either direction. Having this sort of dilemma over a purse is pretty silly and hilarious…but what do I do…what would YOU do?!
By the way, the first in a series of TFF eBooks, “Dress for Less: Learn to Buy Quality New Clothes for You & Your Family,” is coming out shortly on Amazon Kindle (no link available yet but here’s a preview of the cover)! Maybe this Kate Spade purse will make it into the revised edition next year!
