When I’m Goodwill trolling, I usually stay pretty open-minded about brand-names. As long as they’re cute/decently made, I don’t care what the tag on an item I really like says.
Except for Walmart brands. There I draw the line.
There’s just something a little insulting about paying $4 for a used shirt that probably only ever cost $8 and will likely fall apart after two gentle cycles.
But I remember this shirt. I remember liking its indigo and white floral frilliness when I spotted it from two aisles away where I was busy thumping watermelons. (Where else but Walmart could this even happen?)
I also remember disliking the $22 (*choke*) price tag.
Until I stumbled across this little beauty in my size at Goodwill for a piddling $2.29, and my never-buy-Walmart-brands rule took a backseat to my love of ruffles, graphic floral prints, and covered buttons.
At 90% off the Walmart price, I’m shouting it from the rooftops: “I’m wearing Geeeeeeoooorge!”
