Poppin' Tags

Happy Friday!  I was out "poppin' tags" a bit this week.  Couple of really good buys.  First, this Lacoste Chemise mens varstiy cardigan sweater.   It is soft and cozy, in perfect condition.  I remember when Izod Lacoste was really popular in the late 70's and early 80's.  I had a pink polo shirt that I loved.
Sorry for the blurry pics.  I have no idea why they appear blurry.  They didn't when I viewed them after uploading?
A pretty crochet sweater.  I actually bought it for the buttons.  It has pretty, large wooden buttons down the front.  
But after washing it and line drying it, I kind of like it.  Especially with that pale pink blouse I have it paired with.
A huge bag of yarns.  Half of which is still in the original wrapping, and plastic packaging from shipping.

23 full and unopened skeins.  And another 10-12 partial skeins.
A Dooney & Bourke handbag.

 Still had the silica gel inside the pockets, and paper in the bag to hold shape. 
Off to watch my niece Deanna play basketball.   Have a great weekend!!
XO  Kris

Hi Kris, Don't know how I missed this-what great finds. I so remember IZOD; we wore their polo shirts and other items. Hope you are enjoying nice weather-it is snowing here still and we've got about 3-4" on the ground. I'm ready for warmth!
Have a great day.
