Our daughter Kayla came home on Wednesday before Thanksgiving. She did what she calls “thrifted her way home”. That means she stops at every thrift store between her house and mine. She lives two hours away so that makes for lots of thrift stores.
She “hit pay dirt” at the Goodwill in Oelwein, Iowa. She found an awesome Fossil purse, some name brand shoes for me that I had almost ordered but was waiting to see what happened with my foot, some sweaters and a bag of vintage aprons. There were so many aprons in the bag…likely close to 15 and they were all in excellent, unused shape.
I was teasing her and told her to do an “apron turning” kind of like they do bed turnings for a quilt show.
Here’s just a sampling of her apron pack. She loves all things fruit so this one was likely her favorite.
This one, (sorry picture not the best) was double layered on the bottom. It seemed it was made to be an every day work apron.
The childcare kids were still at my house when Kayla was showing off here aprons so Kayla even gifted an apron to the oldest two girls….
This one was very cool in construction. It had a grommet along one side and was made to be a wrap around apron.
She loved the checkered one that zipped up.
This was just a tiny sampling of the aprons. There were at least 5 in the bag that were “short” aprons. They only came a few inches below the belly button line and had pockets all around the bottom. We decided that we thought they were likely an apron to hold clothes pins.
It was so fun seeing so many cute aprons all in one bunch. Total cost of the apron bag was $8. All were in excellent shape. Kayla uses aprons a lot. As a Family Consumer Science (Home Ec) teacher, kids need aprons in the kitchen to keep their school clothes clean.
It was fun seeing the aprons and knowing that Kayla will happily but them all to use.
