It’s a thrifty find stash report today! That’s my favorite kind!!
I got a message on Facebook that one of the thrift stores I shop at was moving. At first I was a little sad but then I found out that they were moving to a bigger and better building that the owner was buying. PERFECT! I like bigger…and I like better. I’ve talked to her and have known that space has been an issue for her. Hopefully this store will have LOTS of space.
Because they are moving everything there is half price…you know I’d have to squeeze in a trip somehow.
I’ve gotten fabric and crafty things at this thrift store before so I’m always on the look out….so did I find anything?? YES! They’re a little bit on the quirky side but I know they will find a place into a quilt…someday.
The bucket of scraps…mostly 1/8 yard or so cuts was marked $1.50. I can see a couple in there that I won’t use.
The Easter fabric I debated about. It was marked $3. There are 4 yards there. I finally decided that it’s colorful and I think would be okay to use on a charity baby quilt as a backing…right?
The white London fabric was $1.25. There is a 1 1/2 yards of that. It’s 60″ wide. I grabbed that too. It’s quirky but fun. I’ll always remember where I bought it. It too could make the back of a baby quilt. It’s big enough. I’m guessing it might get chopped up and distributed out into many quilts…we’ll see.
So my fabric total was $5.75…but remember, everything was half price…. So I got out of the store with a purchase price of $2.88….it’s going to be fun to find places to use it all. Sometimes having that challenge is part of the fun.
So chime in with your opinion…is it okay to use the cute little Easter fabric on the back of a charity baby quilt? I debated on it..answers either way won’t offend me in the least. I’m curious to see what you all think.
