A unique shirt
My family of four purchases most of our clothes from thrift stores. I can find some really good items that are new or barely used. Its easy to find a button shirt that fits and I like. Its a rare day when I find a snap button shirt. Snap buttons are a unique find in a used clothing store. I may only find one in the entire store and I might be lucky enough that it actually fits. They are a rare breed that either people don’t wear much anymore or don’t want to give up and share with another.
It’s not just a “cowboy” shirt
Over the past couple of years I have acquired several snap button shirts via thrift store finds. I have found a few at discounted stores but I have never paid more than what it would be to gas up my Chevy Trailblazer. I like finding that shirt and getting it for a bargain. My closet has labels from Old Navy, Senoma, American Eagle Outfitters, Wrangler, Panhandle Slim, Express, JNCO, Aeropostale, Ditch Plains, Levi, American Rag and a few others.
