Then again, there were legit hundreds in a gigantic cardboard box. Maybe I should go offer them $50 for the whole box and do something fun with them...
    Fuse them together and make a belt out of some....or a jacket, hahaha.

    You can find large lots of these for cheap on Alibaba. I would guess that Clockwork Synergy and several other suppliers buy from the same few manufacturers.

    Sixty-eight percent of U.S. households, or about 85 million families, own a pet, according to the 2017-2018 National Pet Owners Survey conducted by the American Pet Products Association (APPA).

    Ninety-nine percent of eBay menswear sellers, or about a zillion people, have a "smoke-free, pet-free home," according to carlitos' extensive research.

    What are the odds?

    I discovered thrifting thirty-five years ago and haven't brought a new item of clothing since (with the exception of underwear and socks). I practice buying a level of quality I could not afford if I paid retail prices. Here are two examples: The top is a Peerless Couture silk & cashmere blazer with horn buttons, Bemberg lining and half canvas construction. New price over $600.00. I paid $32.00 on eBay. The blue blazer is by Daniel Cremieux (I love the testeful brown buttons) and would cost over $300 at Dillards. I paid $22.00 on eBay. At these prices I have eliminated clothing as a major expense while still collecting a quality wardrobe! Plus, I learned how to do my own alterations saving even more in the process!

    Stopped by the thrift store yesterday. Apparently, someone, my size must have dropped off a few items because I picked up three pieces of outerwear:

    1. A surprisingly nice wool blend, tweed blazer by Gap.
    2. Another surprisingly nice wool blend grey peacoat by Merona.
    3. A cotton unstructured navy blazer by J. Crew.

    $35 for all three.
