A Trivial Post for Troubling Times, with Hermes and Marcel Proust
I haven't posted for a few days. How to write about my little frugal adventures when so much bad stuff is going on?
Anyway, after 30 years of hoping to find one, here is my latest thrift purchase. After reading around the internet, I'm quite sure it is the real thing: weighs around 2.2 oz, has the detailing, has handrolled hem stitched to the front, etc.
I suppose trivial things are the most important. Or so says Mr. FS. Actually, Mr. FS attributes the idea to his favorite writer, Marcel Proust.
Are there any trivial events you would like to celebrate?
