day 14: garage sale finds for projects

Today I went to the flea market and a few garage sales, and boy howdy did I find some great stuff.  Almost everything I got today are materials for “the” craft show.  Garage sales and thrifting are the only way for me to find vintage fabrics for Vintage Princess by M.E., plus it’s fun.  You never know what you will find and one day you will find exactly what you are looking for.

One place was selling fabric for $2 a pound! I could not believe it, fleece for jackets and satin for super hero capes! Total score!

At the next few stops I found a bag of new embroidery floss, which was on my need to buy it list, this bag broke the bank at a dollar.  Three (two green and one pink) of the Midsummer Light designed by Tord Boontje; I was so excited! I have always loved these, a dollar each (felt like I was stealing them) I could not believe it. Also, I found an awesome vintage “towel” of a mermaid.  This will be framed and hanging in the bathroom with the other vintage mermaids.  Want to guess how much this gem was??? Fifty cents! Woo-Hoo! Love it!

Other items on todays finds list, a puppet theater with four puppets and play clothes for the kiddo, four awesome star shaped paper lanterns, a Hawaiian shirt for John and some bits and pieces for this years Halloween costume.

Grand total for the day $15! Amazing!
