This is my Red for Rednesday this week. I found this "deal" recently at a thrift store called The Spring Boutique here in Tampa. The proceeds from sales go towards supporting Domestic Violence Prevention and an Emergency Shelter Agency. The bag appears to be brand new and it caught my eye because of it's Red color that's perfect for a "Cherry Chick". I did a little research online looking for the name that was in the tote. I'd never heard of Kathy Van Zeeland but it seems she is a well known designer. Long story short, I finally found a listing on Ebay for the exact same bag. The starting bid is $79.99 or a Buy it Now prices of $88.99 + $14.99 for shipping. How much did I pay for mine you ask??
It was $19.95 + 20% off but I said I didn't need the discount since it was for a good cause. I felt even better about my "deal" once I found out how much of a "deal" it was. Yahoo!
