Thrifty Therapy


I had a big weekend. I found out I was on the waiting list for the Bazaar Bizarre in SF after all and now I am going to the show. It is/ was wierd because I don't really have much time to fill up my booth, and because the original rejection spawned my early whiny "craft-istenialist"* post.
So in the face of an overwhelming "to do" list.. I went thrifting.. and got lucky. (um.. at the thrift store... umm ..I mean finding stuff to buy.. I mean..).
It did help to ease anxiety. And it amused me.
Now I need to settle down and get crafting.

PS: The pink French vintage yarn. And there were bobble head sumos too! see sumos here

* Craft- istentialism as an emotional/ phisophical state originally discussed with Michelle.

Nice thrift score! Just wanted to say I've been enjoying your blog, but have yet to comment because I wasn't on blogger...until today! (I had no idea how easy it was to just start a little account) Anyhow, I got this blogger account, so now I can comment like crazy! Or at least every now and then:) Anyway, really like your crafting and hope everything goes well at bizarre bazaar!

Zoe.

I love the fabric everything is laying on -- was that a thrifty find too?

Must be a good week for thrifting, after a month of dry spells I got quite the booty yesterday as well.

Thanks for the nice comments!
The fabric was part of the haul.
Just a napkin but I see pockets or pin cushion potential.

Hey Bitter Betty:

Congratulations on getting into Bazaar Bizarre - you belong there and I'm glad they realized it.

I wore your shirt to "Chillin'Productions" a San Francisco event at the Mezanine with 60 indie designers and got tons of comments. I must admit, my "industrious" shirt makes me smirk self-satisfactorily every time I wear it.

Love,
Craft Whore
