I remember even back in middle school going to thrift stores with my friend Megan digging for old t-shirts & ripped jeans. There is something about digging through junk to find a great deal or that rare vinage treasure. For example, I found this box just sitting in the corner at a local shop the other day . . .
so curiously I peeked inside . . .
it was FILLED with beautiful fabricbut recently I have fallen in Love with vintage linens -sheets, pillowcases, table clothes, towels . . . I love the patterns. And now that I can sew I am able to use the fabric for other ideas! I also love vintage fisher-price toys, I'm not sure why, but I do?! On Tuesdays I have off while Josh is in school so about once a month I peek around my favorite local thrift stores. I like going at the this time because Josh isn't pestering me to buy every toy in sight . . . there isn't many people around . . .& it is right after the weekend when they are stocking from the latest drop offs. This week I got to go to several!!!! It has been a while so I was excited to find lots of linens & other little goodies . . .
I still always pick Josh up a little something . . . he loved the fisher price parking garage!
