    I hadn’t thought of asking that simple question: would I pay full price? That’s a good question to ask.

    Hello from Sweden!
    I love your “test” before buying second hand clothes! Will try it next time.

    I just found your blog and I already bookmarked it! I love it!

    Good luck with the interview!

    I just found your blog via Angela Barton’s Year w/o spending
    I too love your “test”. 99% of my clothes purchases are second hand I have ended up with a few that were not so great after all, but since I saved so much I figure I’m still very much ahead money wise over shopping retail. The not so great after alls were donated back to the thrift store. Maybe they will be “just right” for someone else. I have learned to be more selective but your test will make decision making easier.

    I just completed my first Plarn bag, similar to the one in your picture. What a blast, I am ready to go to supermarket and ask for all the bags that get recycled back! Actually I want more colors now!!! I will try any craft anytime made from anything. Have been a crafter is all aspects since I was 15, well that was 42 years ago when my Mom taught me the two basic knit stitches, I was ‘hooked’ and it just flourished from there. Love your site, bookmarked it with a “1” preceeding it, so it is first on my craft list. . . . ready for more. Thanks, Dianne ;)
