The thrift store Gods heard me again!

Well-I know you've all experienced this...OK? My daughter is HOOTOWL crazy. I mean who the heck let the owls out? Who Who Who?? So, we are drooling over all the cool Enid Collins Owl purses on the Internet and I said.."I WILL find one!". Tonight, somethnig told me to go to the Salvation Army. I was literally headed to Savers, the thrift department store and did a Batturn to go the other way. I had no sooner got inside and WHAM! behind the jewelry counter is THE purse! 14.99-The Big HOOTer of a purse in Perfect shape. Perfect as in NEVER BEEN USED! Now, I sit and wait for her and her boyfriend to get home from the movies...(Cue Carly Simon's ANTICIPATION>>>ANTICIPAye_YeA_SHU!)Here is a pix from the internet. I haven't had time to snap a pix. But, it's exactly like it! Not one rhinestone missing! I LOVE when this happens! Later, ZSM

You rock! Intuition is not to be messed with! I know your daughter was thrilled. I hope you got the camera out for her reaction!

Thanks all! I love Enid too... I'd like to find the Owl and Pussycat one. It's really stylized and '60's!

I awear it is the thrill of the hunt isn't it? I am an owl freak too.

Yes, that is a BIG part of it, Beth, the hunt. That's why my car wants to pull itself into the thrift store parking lots like it has a mind of it's own. I'm just afraid I'll miss something.ZSM
