My thrifting trips these days are a combination of purchases to keep, and purchases to sell on. I usually know as I buy something, whether it's for me/us, or whether I intend to sell it on. But occasionally I'll throw myself a curve ball (just to be awkward) and buy something with the intention of selling it, and then go and fall in love with it....
This is one such instance. I adore the styling on this vintage American Tourister vanity case, almost as much as I love the olive green colour. The clasp mechanism is really quirky, the quilted lining is just scrumptious.
So the angel on my shoulder is saying this: "considering I don't travel a great deal, can I really justify keeping it,when selling it would contribute to the greater good of the family budget"
The naughty little devil on my other shoulder is saying this: " Awwww, it WAS very cheap (and I mean VERY cheap) and you'll never find another one like this, you know. What's the harm? You're putting plenty of other things in the shop. If you love it, have it. Perks of the job, surely?..."
Both reasonable arguments, I think you'll agree (The devil on my shoulder always does more talking than the angel too. That says something about me, I'm sure. Hmmmm.) You can see my dilemma though?
What would you do???
