As has become apparent here, Elina and I are suckers for vintage clothes. The local UFF store has been having its normal clearance sale for almost two weeks now and we've amassed quite many vintage (and also not so vintage) clothes there. Today it was the two euros day (everything went by two euros) and I rushed in there to take out the fabulous seventies overcoat* I had been looking earlier on the three euros day. It was gone! Damn damn damn! What good did it do to me that I tried to save one lousy euro when I didn't get the coat? I cursed myself and said to Elina: "You regret the clothes you don't buy, not those you buy."
Luckily I found another marvellous overcoat. The original price was 50 euros! It was dark brown fake fur and had very nice buttons on it.
* Very tight fitting, very long, brown baize, a belt, and very strange buttoning system. I thought at first it was a ladies' coat, but it turned out to be a men's coat after all (I fear it was bought by a woman who will throw it away when she sees it's a men's coat). It was designed by Rohdi Heinz, who was a German-born designer who worked in Finland in the seventies. Damn again. I've liked all the Rohdi Heinz clothes I've seen. I could almost collect Rohdi Heinz! Have to get my shit together on this matter!
