Today’s Question:
This isn’t limited to clothing, could be something totally different-
Can you think of an item you bought in multiple sizes ?
Tools, wrenches, screwdrivers, drills must, screws and washers.

Any item you bought in multiple colors or patterns ?
Tee shirts.

The most recent thing you mended or had someone mend for you ?
A light jacket needed the bottom of the pockets stitched up.

Extra Credit:
Do you have a small portable laundry bag for when you take a trip, travel ?
Yep, it' a large white kitchen trash can liner.

Bonus:
Have you ever gone into a smaller store that has fewer product choices,
because you didn’t want to take the time & hassle to go into the larger store that had more options ?
We have a small drive thru place that is handy for those things.

Just for Fun:
Is there a rare/limited edition/collector’s item you’ve hunted for online or off-if so, have you found it yet ?
A 55, 56 or57 Chevy Nomad in primo shape that's not a budget buster.

Thanx Cloven. Well Done.

Today’s Question:
This isn’t limited to clothing, could be something totally different-
Can you think of an item you bought in multiple sizes ? Shoes and work gloves.
An item you bought in multiple colors or patterns ? See above.
The most recent thing you mended or had someone mend for you ? I just "mended" my wife's Pontiac Montana we bought new in 2004 to get it ready to sell, e.g., dash warning lights, parking lot dents, new tires and battery, new starter and a lot of vacuuming, shampooing and polishing.)

Extra Credit:

Bonus:
Have you ever gone into a smaller store that has fewer product choices,
because you didn’t want to take the time & hassle to go into the larger store that had more options ? All we have here is a small convenience store.

Just for Fun:
Is there a rare/limited edition/collector’s item you’ve hunted for online or off-if so, have you found it yet ? I had planned to be outside doing chores rather than answering the QOTD questions today until I saw Hemlock140's excellent reply above and it remiinded me that yes, there is one thing I have searched for several years.

For the last several years I've continued to hunt for a completely stock turquoise and white 1957 Chevy Bel Air, 2-door hardtop with a 283 c.i. V8 (gold Vs). Unfortunately I've found several but never had the extra $60,000 to buy it.

BTW, Hemlock, in the very late 1960s, I owned a beautiful 1968 Chevy Nova (2-door, vinyl top, 307 V8? and floor shift)

Sorry but I am unable to upload a pic of that Nova. Some sort of bad request?)

An item you bought in multiple colors or patterns ?
Clothing-shirts & pants-a few months ago.
Dressing/fitting rooms in stores were closed due to the pandemic, so I couldn't try things on-
instead had to buy items, go home, try them on there, then return the ones I didn't want back at the store.
The most recent thing you mended or had someone mend for you ?
I mended the seam on a cloth face mask, because an edge had ripped/worn out.

Extra Credit:
Do you have a small portable laundry bag for when you take a trip, travel ?
Yes, a couple so-called "ditty bags".

Bonus:
Have you ever gone into a smaller store that has fewer product choices,
because you didn’t want to take the time & hassle to go into the larger store that had more options ?
Yes, the other day I didn't feel like navigating the gauntlet of crowd and long aisles in grocery store,
so I went to dollar store in that same shopping plaza and got similar item (wasn't what I wanted, but close enough on that occasion).

Just for Fun:
Is there a rare/limited edition/collector’s item you’ve hunted for online or off-if so, have you found it yet
?
Yes, a specific handbag in a discontinued pattern/style that I had a yearning for-was tough to find for sale, even secondhand, online...
but I did at last acquire it
