Thrift Store Report: Mariner Flotation Jacket; Not Purchased Edition

At a princely $14.99, the price was a much needed, much appreciated deterrent to resist buying this jacket and jumping in a chilly December swimming pool to test the legendary Empress buoyancy. It was a great colorway and the cork balls on the hoodie cord is an inspired idea that I am sure to rip-off.

I didn't buy it, but you can! It is at the Fillmore Goodwill, at least it was yesterday.
