Early last week I snuck off to my favorite local thrift store. Not expecting much I was again sweetly surprised. Wish I knew if it was my "never get a basket rule" or "don't expect much law"? Either way I had an hour of fun for pennies in my pocket.
Just a small lot but pretty none the less.
Vintage cards and game pieces. Whitman checkers...never used.
Buttons on cards. I have this need to save every last one.
Hello, my name is Renee and I am addicted to vintage embroidery transfers.
Vintage books oh how I love their covers.
Just a few more treasures. Some to keep some to send away.
Hidden on a shelf in a plastic zip lock I found these amazing sewing books.
(My second copy of the blue Dressmaker book.)
Folded up in the middle of the lot was this January edition of Needlewoman.
Super cute (never used) Baby Book and a yard of this cute juvenile print.
Poor Santa. He needs to be "Magpied" but I love his face.
Geometric print tablecloth in bright red.
I always pick up these old tool boxes. They hold anything from cards to tape, tags to trim. Most of the time they are cheaper than the plastic ones.
How nifty to bring it all home in my new old picnic basket.
Tomorrow I have a very long overdue mail post of all the recent postman packages. Come back and see what's new.
