Once again I am joining in on Vintage Thingies Thursday hosted by ColoradoLady.
This week I visited one of my favorite thrifting spots!
Our local Hospice thrift store has to be one of the cleanest second hand stores that I've ever been in. It's pretty well organized, and I often find a treasure or two.
I love to collect sewing paraphernalia. So digging around in the craft bins, I came away with these little goodies.
Most of them were 29c each.
And at times they get in an assortment of crafting books, so I always check out the book section. This week this book on cross stitch patterns really grabbed my interest. It has some really cute patterns.
But you know how it is when you have been searching for that one particular thing that you would really love to grab a hold of? Well it happened to me this week. As I was browsing through the books, I saw it! The one craft book that's been on my list for a long time. I almost couldn't believe it when I saw the title in the pile of books.
101 Patchwork Patterns by Ruby Short McKim. This was the Quilting bible back before quilt books were an every day occurence. I've looked for this book everywhere, and even online. I could buy a newer edition on the Dover website for $10, but when I looked inside this book, it was marked $1.00!!!! Wooo-hooo. Absolutely made my day!
So what thrifting treasures have you found this week?
Please check out ColoradoLady's blog and visit the other Vintage Thingies :-) Also check out Goodwill Goodies and Thrift Store Thursday on Holly's blog. What fun things to find in thrift stores!
