Thrift Store Thursday: Must Have Been The Fabric Fairy!

Sometimes when you thrift shop you just hit the mixed blessing jackpot.

My stash is over flowing. Over Flowing! I have really been trying hard to practice sound accumulation practices and use what I have and stuff like that; but sometimes a girl "just has the eat the ice cream while it is on her plate"...

This week the ice cream was all over my plate.

4+ yards of dark red boucle woven WOOOL:
Jackie Kennedy Suit? Long Coat? Oh man...wool! $2.12.





Slightly faded but very nice super thick barkcloth- Purses or maybe a beautiful upholstered cushion for my chandelier embellished arbor garden bench next spring?: $1.86





5 or 6 yards(?!?) of the cosiest flannel for new pj's...This stuff is so thick and fluffy! $2.12





And this lovely heavy cotton print for a new dress...There is about 5 yards of extra wide fabric so this is going to be one Honey of a frock... The ultimate in frock-ulance: $2.62





Plus all these findings: .25 each


And a vintage edition of Poe..50 cents For my Halloween display on the cabinet:





But where to stash it all? Where is the storage Fairy, anyway?

wow, where do you find such great sewing stuff? i could find stuff like that at antique stores perhaps, but it would be expensive. the thrift stores around here -- salvation army, goodwill, etc. -- never have such great finds. congratulations! i can't wait to see the frock!

WOW! What a great haul! I love it when you hit the thrift and it yields so very much...

If you run into the storage fairy...could you send her my way when she's done with you?
