You all know I love thrift store shopping. Last week I was out of one of my meds and decided to go get the prescription filled and of course, stop at the thrift store. I’m to the point now of isolation that I can be around adults just fine…put it this way, as of last week, I was cleared to sleep in the same bed as someone. So I was free to go to town…
Here is what I found at the thrift store…
Two 100% cotton sheets…
A Cook’s cast iron pot. This is for Buck. He asked that I look for one for him.
Fabric for Carolyn to make baby gowns. Can you believe there were over 9 yards of the gray fabric??
Here are some things for childcare. Rolling pins for play dough, play money… the same play money I already have the kids fight over. Sorting trays and the green foam for crafting.
I also bought paint. Most of these are 3/4 of the way full. YAHOO. Paint is typically about $4.50 a bottle from where I order it.
Here are…Two chunks of flannel. These will go for baby care kits. My friend will make them into baby blankets.
There was an African Violet.
This was an unusual find.
LINENS for Kayla. One is a dish towel, (lower bottom right) that’s for me.
I bought quite a bit of fabric. I think all of this is backing worthy. The green that ladies apologized about a half dozen times. There are 6 pieces of fabric. They had to charge me 50 cents for each piece. There’s a total of 7 yards of fabric. They were convinced it should have been bundled and the price would have been cheaper. No worry to me. $3 for 7 yards of fabric is a steal in my book.
The striped on the bottom of the pile was 4 yards worth and they were 60″ wide.
I ended up buying these too. I keep what I like as pass on what I don’t.
Here is what was in the bags…
I also bought this set of stretcher bars. Teresa Kogut uses these for punchneedle. I thought for $1 for the set, I could give them a try.
There was also this quilt top…$1. I love the vintage fabrics. I might machine quilt this one and use it for childcare…or I might send it to Jazz. We’ll see.
So that was my thrifting day. It’s so funny. I never know what I’ll find. I do love that if something “gets put out in the universe”, I often later find it thrifting…like Buck’s cast iron pot. He told me he wanted one at Christmas time…Soon after, I found it. So fun!!
Oh, I love thrifting…
