I have two thrifting adventures to share with you in one post.
On my first thrifting adventure, this little girl, my granddaughter Georgia came with me. She was a terror in the store and had to come out to the car, get a little talking to, and then went back into the store.
I keep telling her that her Grandma Joey is a meaner and she has to toe the line when she is with me. She’s learning that. When we went back into the store, she was an angel.
Check out the amazing antique mirror I found…It was $15. It’s going to go in my guest bedroom. Craig said he’d hang it for me next time he comes.
Check out the pretty details.
I found some other goodies too including lots of fabric.
I picked up these things for possible cross-stitch finishes.
I got a Magna Doodle and a fishing set. Sadly, the fishing set doesn’t have a magnet in the end. I’m trying to figure out if I can fix it.
I got a pile of fabric that I will send to Carolyn. She knows to get surprise packages from me now. Carolyn makes all the great goodies for Lutheran World Relief Baby Care Kits.
I got all of these fabrics too. I had counted at one point but now I don’t remember but I think there were about 45 yards of fabric altogether.
Some items were priced. Here are the tags below. The rest of the pieces were 50 cents each. I am keeping some of these and passing on a bunch to the Cresco Ladies.
I also bought this wooden trunk. I am going to use it as my coffee table in my living room. I paid too much for this, $100. It was actually overpriced but I wanted it…Plus, all the profits from the store go back into the community.
I’m keeping all of the blankets and pillows for the kiddos in it.
I really do love it. You all know I like all things WOOD.
My new rug will go under here. I can’t wait until it comes!!
I’m considering the trunk a purchase plus a donation and I’m totally okay with it.
On my next trip…FABRIC WAS HALF PRICE!! Here’s everything I bought.
I bought this suitcase for Georgia.
I bought this stack of Aida. I don’t stitch on Aida but Kayla sometimes does and I like having some here in case I am trying to twist someone’s arm and teach them to cross-stitch. These were considered fabric. They weren’t marked so that means 50 cents each but they were half price so 75 cents bought this all.
I bought a bag of gray fabric.
I bought a kit for a baby quilt, muslin, the green and gray fat quarters, and the velvet-like fabric. The velvet-like fabric I thought to use on the back of cross stitch pillows or pincushions.
I got a bag of Barbie doll clothes with cute shoes.
I bought some decorating stuff…
The box on the lower left is made to look like an old book, but it opens.
I just love the cover. Someday a cross-stitch piece might be mounted on it.
I bought this for 50 cents…Yes, I was thinking cross stitch again.
I got hand towels that will be for baby care kits for Lutheran World Relief. The shirt is for a pillow I made for Carver. I got two pillows too but forgot to take pictures of them.
I also got some linens and other do-dads including the pincushions you see on the lower left. They are “finger” pincushions. They were made with a bottle cap with a hole drilled through it. Elastic was put through the hole and a cover ball of fluff is glued in at the top. It’s so cute. I’ll try to show you more about them in another post. They were cute. The four pincushions were all in a bag for 75 cents.
They had a TON more fabric there but it was all upholstery fabric.
It was a good thrifting day. I had fun. I had Gannon with and he was PERFECT in the store. Made a little too good as I had plenty of time to look and spend money. Oh, but I love thrifting. It’s my favorite.
