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!

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.

You can call me Betty, or Bethany, or Beth ...Just don't call me late for dinner. said...

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.
