Coached by a Friend and Neighbor to be a Smart Shopper

Woo Hoo! Look at my bargain. I was saleing (garage sales) with friend Mary this morning. She picked up a brown purse and said it was nice, but "I don't need another brown purse. It is leather, Jane". I picked it up, asked if she really didn't want it, and thought it was leather and in excellent condition. Surely it was worth a buck. I peeked inside and saw the patch that said "Coach". The tag on the outside said "Coach" too. A knockoff, I thought. When I paid for it I told the woman I would impress with the purse even if it was a knock off. The seller, a neighbor, said it was real. Her sister and another person were previous owners, but it was real. I am feeling like a good bargain hunter.
