…Don’t spend it on this. Seriously.
Why? Because that’s just greedy, and it’s taking advantage of people. Yes, we all know how coveted the Knitted & Knotted Limehouse sweater coat is, and how rare it is to see it in certain sizes, especially in an XS.
But you know what? It’s possible to get even the rarest items at reasonable prices. I know, because I literally just bought a Knitted & Knotted — in a size XS, no less! — from a wonderful, kind woman named Debbie. And guess what? She sold it to me for $200 — otherwise known as retail price.
Shocking, I know. But not everyone is out there to price gouge you, and you will find that must-have item for less than it costs to mortgage your house if you’re patient.
Speaking of overpriced, there’s an Anthropologie Inverness trench up on eBay for the low, low — cough — price of $298. Remember when these babies were selling on overstock.com from a grand total of $40?
Yeah. Unless your last name is Cullen, Kennedy or Rockefeller, don’t buy that. We need to teach people that we aren’t okay with their price gouging. And we’re also not okay with my picture being used to promote a overpriced auction without my consent:
Very, very weird. Luckily, the seller was kind enough to take it down, but I still don’t approve of that price.
Lastly, Christilynn of my sister blog, Inside Bella’s Closet – whom I’m visiting this week! – is launching an initiative to say “thank you” for all the ways Twilight has changed our lives. Check out her blog post about it here and contribute if you’ve made friends, fallen in love, started new hobbies or just had fun because of Twilight. If the response is good enough, Christilynn will even send it to Summit Entertainment!
That’s all for now – I’d better get packing!
