It's been a good thrifting week. So good that I'm going spread the goodness out over two posts. Here goes.
The fabric. I love that the linens at this place are 99cents. That makes me very very happy. This is an assortment of sheets, curtains, and bedspreads that will all have a new life as clothing or bags.
I usually don't even look at the aprons, because really, how many can a girl need? But this fabric caught my eye. Love it. And I love that it's unfinished. Not sure if I'll actually finish it or cut up this delicious PINK fabric.
Second stop: the dishes. Some old glasses with silver rims (which match my current drinking glasses, which seem to break as fast as I bring new ones into the house), a great Hakerware oven plate and bowl (yummy mustard color), dishes to sort of match my sort of matching set of blue vintage dishes, two fun painted trays, and more fun yellow plastic bowls, all good for outdoor food, for sure. (good god, I just noticed the specks of food on the table in the back of the photo. we all have priorities. cleaning up isn't one of mine, apparently.)
Random rainbow goods. Old school suspenders which quite pleased my Ezra. A Susan Bates knitting row counter (I've never seen one with pegs like this before!). And an old Polaroid camera. I have no idea if I can even get film for this, but my littles are so fascinated with the 'magic camera' after a beach date last fall when mav showed them how it worked.
And my last stop (before rushing out the door because I've spent too much time there already), is always to the books. I found another old chapter book that I think the boys will love, and this FABULOUS big old book All About Ants. It's full of drawings and way more than I think I want to know about bugs, but still can't stop myself from looking. Oh! And the Jean Ray Laury Quilts and Coverlets book in the back was actually found by my friend Betsy at the same shop (Thanks, Betsy!).
That felt sooo good. Up next: Vintage clothing goodness. And the grand total price, because, really, that's part of the exciting thing about thrifting too, isn't it? The deals!
