Here’s one you can file under strange obsessions – vintage denim collectors.  There are people who actually scour old gold and silver mines from the hey-days of the mid-1800’s searching for cast off clothing.  The holy grail is to find an early pair of denim jeans because to find a pair could mean thousands of dollars.  And if they are true Levi’s that can be authenticated and dated back to the earliest days of the company when they used leather patches, they could fetch tens of thousands of dollars from avid collectors.  Levi Strauss is associated with the miners who came west during the Gold Rush of 1849 because he was among the first to open a dry goods store to provide the gear and provisions prospectors needed.  He opened his first store called, Levi Strauss and Company in San Francisco in 1850, after moving west from New York.  It was a letter he received from Jacob Davis, a tailor in Reno, Nevada that changed their lives forever.  Davis described how durable his denim pants were after affixing metal rivets to stress points on the pockets there were known to rip “out in the diggings” as one old-timer put it.  After securing a patent, the team began selling their new and improved denim jeans, and the rest is history.

Today, jeans are the most popular clothing item in the world.  And for good reason, they are comfortable, durable and fashionable, just the item that rounds out the typical wardrobe, and they are worn by all, regardless of age or gender.  That’s why buying a pair while 6pm is having an end of summer clearance sale is a smart idea.  But the smarter move is to search Groupon for coupon codes that can be used to save money on your next pair of jeans, or any other clothing item you need for your family.  They carry top designers like Levi’s and name brand makers of quality shoes, accessories and apparel that are too numerous to mention.  But it is worth mentioning that you cansave as much as 80% off shoes and 70% off clearance items.

Here’s an investment idea for you: Buy a pair of Levi’s now, put them in a time capsule that remains sealed for 100 years.  Who knows, by then they may be worth lots of money.  But you shouldn’t trade them for a million bucks.
