Re: [SCA_India] found something neat --OOP
- More suggestions to finding Indian garb: Check local
thrift stores during Halloween. I have found several
during that time, including a couple of Indian wedding
dresses. Also if you get friendly with your local
Indian store owner (like I am) they may have a used
clothing section that they keep in the back of the
store away from regular customers. I found 2 beautiful
sari's that had only been worn once, for about 75% off
Hope it helps.
