Friday Tip!

Dear Constant Reader,

Happy Friday! Here’s your tip!

Get to know your local thrift store.

They are a gold mine for costume pieces, accessories, and props. And for cheap. It’s a great place to get things you’re going to destroy, modify beyond recognition, or experiment with. Some garments are worth getting just to rip off the trim and use it on something else.

My best success was half a dozen champagne coupes for my “French Champagne” act for three bucks total. But this pales in comparison to Scratch’s super-shopping abilities.

Tuesday he arrived at The Teaseday Club without his suit (long story) and certainly couldn’t host a show in his civvies. He went over to the Goodwill across the street and scored a pair of pants, a dress shirt, a checked sport coat, and a Hawaiian-print tie. And they all fit.

And of course, if you’ve got stuff you don’t need any more, it may become someone else’s treasure!
