On the rare day I have free time, I enjoy browsing local thrift stores. The day I found this tunic was a good day! I've been a long time thrifter and people are genuinely surprised when they compliment something I'm wearing and tell them I found it thrifting. Gone are the days of grandma's stiff starched Poly & her sister Ester (my terms for polyester ;-). Now, if you know where to look, you can find some gems.
