Who: Oriel Summerby and Ellie Cattermole.
When: September 2nd. Afternoon.
Where: Diagon Alley. Specifically, Twice-Tried Threads.
What: Thrift clothes shopping!
Oriel Summerby never understood why people always rushed out to buy brand new clothes when there were so many used clothes just waiting for new owners. He didn't clothes shop often - he was the sort to wear his clothes, over and over, until they wore out or he outgrew him (which had stopped being a problem several years back). And when he did shop for 'new' clothes, he always went to thrift stores.
Which was precisely what he was doing. He had discovered another shirt with a hole growing in it, and decided he could probably use a few new things. Whenever he went home for a visit, his mother was always teasing him about little holes, as if he was perpetually moth eaten. But Oriel just didn't want to throw things out unnecessarily!
He stepped into Twice-Tried Threads and inhaled that scent of clothes. The light scent of fabrics, of cottons and wools and other materials. He walked through the bins of clothes, in his skinny jeans and his gray shirt that had random stripes of colour on it (both had been other thrift store finds), his black hair a round cap on his head.
The young man was rather silent as he started to look through a bundle of sweaters. He saw one of a nice blue colour and started to tug - only to find it being tugged on the other end. That brought his head up - and he broke into a smile when he saw a familiar face, and gave a wave to Ellie.
