Banana Republic Leather Jacket for $25

Sunday, November 3, 2013

I have been looking for a black leather jacket since the seasons started to change. Motorcycle jackets are everywhere, which is great, and I love them, but I refuse to invest in a fad. Last week, I logged on to my online yard sale site to list some shoes that I no longer wear. I wasn't looking to buy, but saw a post from a seller with a plain black leather jacket with pockets. I asked for some more details. Black leather, Banana Republic, given to the seller when her sister moved to warmer temps. The size? Extra small. The price matched at $25 (Banana Republic jackets usually run around $298). I organized a meetup, tried it on and exchanged cash for coat. Really funny, the seller knew my grandmother's neighbor. Such a small world!

Next up, last night, I was walking home from dinner when I saw a "free stuff" sign next to the road. Of course I had to walk by! Most of the stuff was junk, but there was a really cool handmade wooden chinese checkers set, which I took home, cleaned up and now have sitting on my coffee table. Another man's trash...
