Thrifty Thursday: Jack Spade & ties

March 17, 2011
It had been a while since I really scored at Cargo Largo. Cargo Largo, you say? Why yes, my friend. Cargo Largo. The artist formerly known as “RSO” in the lovely Independence, Missouri. Surely you’ve heard of this city before in the Midwest. Noteworthy mentions of Independence:
And Cargo Largo. In short, it’s the island of misfit toys that were damaged freight, marred, on clearance or something to the effect of “Well, I guess we can sell it here.” Enter the glass case in the designer/boutique selection. Overcrowded and scratched, the glass cases house many treasures and bargains. Jack Spade waxwear canvas dopp kit? Alright.
WHAT & WHY SO MUCH? What’s wrong with it? I mean, my last Dopp kit was a Ziploc bag. Regular: $145, sale $60. I’ll have this thing for the rest of my life. It’s sharp looking.
BUT WHAT’S WRONG WITH MY ZIPLOC BAG DOPP KIT? I know. How embarrassing. That was my travel Dopp kit. Until I got this bad boy. Organized, clean—and I’m not going to throw it away at the end of the weekend.
THE ICING: These ties. Cheap, cheap, cheap.

    My fiance has the same Dopp kit (which I also steal). I can vouch that it will last forever because we abuse this thing. Nice find!

    Also I’m so impressed with your thrifting skills. How do you have the patience for it?! As a woman who loves shopping, I’m a terrible thrift shopper.
