The regular readers of this blog will know us as devoted practitioners of the art of thrifting. Economical? Yes. But it’s also an ideal way to source goods that were produced in the United States before the exodus of manufacturing to foreign locales.
Earlier today, Frannie and I scoured the racks at the local Goodwill. I found a pair of new-with-tags Italian cashmere socks, and Frannie scored a vintage J.G. Hook tartan skirt of unknown provenance.
I also purchased a beautiful woven Hickey Freeman tie and a box of Crane’s stationary, both made in the USA.
