unclebeebo asked: Bravo. Great point about not wanting to spend so much that you couldn't stand to lose an item. This happened to me recently, as an expensive jacket of mine had a hole ripped into it. It was almost too much to bear and made me think that I never should have spend that much on it in the first place.
Sorry to hear that. I know I own a few things that it would bother me if I lost them, despite my self-imposed injunction not to allow that to happen. Unfortunately, thrifters and eBayers are not immune. When you have a beautiful Oxxford suit, whether bought new or second-hand, can you do otherwise than tear up on finding large moth hole in the sleeve?
That said, I’d certainly be much more upset if I dropped four figures on the suit than if I’d snagged it for two at the Value Village.
