That's cool Laura.
I love our Dr Suess books.

Denise, Ade is like that.
When we first got together he wouldn't even shop on the high street.
It drove me crazy. I remember shopping with him once and he spent $140 on a T Shirt. Bloody thing didn;t even fit him and he never did loose the weight to wear it.
Fool!!!!

Now he only shops high street, but still hates the thrifting thing. He will go in a couple of the nicer stores with me, but he has OCD troubles and finds the whole thought very uncomfortable.
My siblings are like me. They went out when they were at mine and bought Ade and 'ball scratcher' in a case for his birthday :D They left the goodwill sticker on it so that he could see when he opened it.
He didn;t see the funny side and was super quick in the bathroom to wash his hands :D :D :D

That is so funny!!!!!

Now I love to get resale items if they have a lot of thought in them and they are my style of vintage.
