Yesterday's thrift find completely affirmed my belief that small town thrift stores always yield the best 'crop', because half the time people don't even know what they're giving away. It was epic enough to be turned into a blockbuster movie: one day, two thrift stores, two pairs of Doc Martens, four dollars. You heard me.
The black pair came from St. Vincents and were $4. They seem to have matte leather and a more 'hiking boot' sole than your average Docs. The purple(!) pair came from Value Village and were $13, but I had a gift card so technically they were free. They have been worn to shreds by someone else's foot but if it takes wearing some thick socks to get them broken into my feet then so be it. I cannot wait to line the two all up in a pretty row with my brown crocodile Docs once I get back to school.
