For the longest time, I had wanted the Northern Flicker Infinity Scarf from Anthropologie. At the steep $48 price tag, I asked for it for Christmas, knowing full-well that I normally don’t spend that much on scarves. As it turned out, I didn’t get it. I got one almost identical to it only for $20! A couple of weeks ago, my Mom and I were at a Fair Trade pop-up Market for the Christmas season & as I rounded a corner and walked into a shop with gifts from Ecuador, I saw it! The almost identical scarf. And, fair trade. And, cheaper! My mom grabbed it up & saved it for me for Christmas & now it’s mine! Jokingly, my mom reminded me as we left the Fair Trade Market, “patience is a virtue”. Sometimes, you just have to wait to get the good deal & not grab what you want up at the first possible minute that you can! I’m thrilled with my new scarf & I can’t even tell a difference from the Anthropologie one! I’ve worn it so many places already & gotten so many compliments about it! Check out the similarity!
