Stash Report

I finally got to the thrift store.  I’ve been wanting to get there but don’t much now since I’ve been providing in home childcare.  I happen to have hit a good day.  I found fabric!!

I got this little stack of scraps….More Frozen fabric to go with what I have and some great prints.  The reds are 1/2 yard cuts…all fabric totaled $3.50.

Some vintage quilt magazines….The sticker says 25 cents but that’s a garage sale sticker.  I only pay 10 cents each.  I love old magazines.

I also found this pile of yardsticks for Hubby.  We’ve both seen a few Pinterest ideas that use them and have always wondered how the people collected so many.  Well we have enough for a project now.

I scored a few other things too.  A shelving unit for Kelli and some Carhart bibs for our son Buck.  A toy highchair and a couple books for the kiddos.  I even picked up three pairs of $2 snow pants for the kiddos.  Parents keep forgetting them so I’m hoping one day we’ll all have boots AND snow pants so we can go out.

I bought a bag STUFFED full of clothes.  When I got home Kelli and I played dress up.  It was so much fun.

It was one of my best thrifting day in a long-long time.  Color me HAPPY!!

Today we’re hooking up with Patchwork Times.

    A long time ago, I made a paper pieced schoolhouse and the ruler that you bought was the hanger. It made such a nice gift to someone with an older style house. A lot of people buy thrift stuff and leave it around like more clutter….sounds like you and your family have the drive to use up stuff. Congrats and good luck. I read your blog every day and enjoy!

    Nice haul! Thrift/consignment shops here seldom have fabric or anything sewing related. Goodwill doesn’t either.

    Sounds like fun. The nearest thrift store to me has mostly dishes and stuff. Haven’t ever seen any fabric there.

    I had (or maybe still have) that first magazine on your stack. I like to sit and look through the old ones too.
