Woman returns $1,100 in real thrift store find
Yvette Heelan thought she got a great deal when she bought a white fleece jacket at a consignment store for just $8.95.
That was before she looked in the pocket. Tucked inside were 11 crisp hundred dollar bills.
"I was like, 'Oh, my god! . . . I found $1,100," said Heelan, a south suburban resident who owns a pet sitting service.
Heelan quickly called Lee Harrison, who had coordinated the Oct. 15 clothing sale at the Attic Door in Tinley Park as a fund-raiser for Illinois Vest-a-Dog, a nonprofit group that raises money for bullet and stab resistant vests for police dogs. The women got the consignment store owner to call the family that had brought in the jacket.
