The Blooming Platter, eBay, and BCBG–My Favorite Kind of Recycling!

I have some new recipes coming soon…I’ve just been waiting for a sunny day–when I was home before dark–to photograph them.  And you’ll love these flavorful dishes!

But in the meantime, I wanted to share my latest find by way of encouraging fashionable recycling if you’re not already hooked.  I am an unabashed consignment shopper.  On the other hand, I’m not wild about clothes shopping in thrift stores generally speaking, but I have occasionally gone in looking for something for  my art classes and emerged with something like a fabulous pair of Impo shoes.  Recently, I’ve struck gold purchasing “like new” clothes and shoes from eBay.

This gorgeous  BCBG top that I bid on  last Saturday became mine last night as I just learned this morning when I logged in.  Whew, that was a long time to wait to score a win!  But worth it, don’t you think?  I love its beautiful fall colors that are zippy rather than earthy-drab.  This item happened to be new with tags and an original price of $98.  (For a knit top?  Really?  Even a gorgeous one?)  My uncontested bid of $29 won the goods.  Yay!

With that fashion victory tucked away, I am now off for a full day of dog walking, gardening, reviewing the Stephen Alexander Homes house at Fall Homearama 2012 for Hampton Roads Magazine, a little shopping for items my kids need for their current art Challenges at school, and dinner at some friends’ house.  Hope your Saturday is similarly full and satisfying!
