Last Thursday I posted some items on my Facebook Page of items I saw while out thrifting but didn’t buy. Here are a couple of things I DID buy. Aren’t these elephants great? They are made of wood and hand painted. The one on the left had broken at some point and someone glued it back together and tried to paint over the crack but weren’t quite able to match up the paint. I figure that for 60 cents each they can go in my garden if I can’t live with the mismatched paint job.
One of the first places I go in any thrift store is to the home section. I found a 100% cotton blanket for $2.00, a tablecloth for $3.00 and the vintage flat sheet for $1.00. I’m going to see if the sheet is big enough to make into a shower curtain, the blanket will travel to the Poconos House this summer and the table cloth… well, that is kind of self explanatory.
I also found the crazy plaid pants for $3.00. They are 100% Virgin Wool, Authentic Wallace Tartan by Pendleton. And the black fabric that isn’t showing up so well is a jumper dress that is also 100% Virgin Wool for $2.00. I’m thinking about a tote bag with plaid pockets and maybe even a couple of bolster pillows with the pant legs. What about you? What would you make with all that wool?
Even with lunch I didn’t spend over $20.00. Yeah, I’m a cheap date. ;)
