Continuing to shovel popcorn in my mouth, I began to conduct a head count of North Face coats as movie patrons walked by. I'll admit I was never the greatest math student, but my inexact survey revealed that for roughly every four people walking past me-one was wearing North Face. I didn't need to count on my fingers to determine that works out to be a 25% average! Armed with this fun fact and a mouth full of popcorn, I struggled to verbalize my findings to Mrs. Dude. She agreed with my garbled conclusions, but warned me to cool it with the popcorn, less I run out before we even got inside the theater!

But that's a discussion for another day. For now one thing is for certain: Due to it's popularity, North Face is a great item to look for at thrift stores and garage sales. Here's a perfect example-I found this North Face backpack at a yard sale for one dollar! You read right...one dollar! It was sitting next to a JanSport schoolbag, which was also a dollar. I bought both, but had a feeling the North Face would sell for more. (I was right.) No time was wasted in posting this backpack. Although school had already started weeks earlier, I knew that wouldn't get in the way of a great auction. True to the brand's popularity, my dollar North Face find ended up selling for an amazing $45 dollars!

So next time your out and about, make sure you take notice of what people are wearing. In my case, even when out stuffing my face with popcorn I learn few things!
