Thrift Thursday: Oh I'd Like To Know Where You Got The Notion
Oh Lordy... Did I ever Rock the New Vintage Thrift Boat, Baby!
50 vintage patterns! 25 cents each.
some in my size
and some little ones.
(even Toys: Raggedy Ann and Winnie the Pooh circa 67...!!!)
And Oceans of beautiful Notions!
I love love love thrifting for Notions. It is so great to get a zipper for 5 or 10 cents instead of a buck or two.
And the joy of vintage buttons is almost beyond compare.
Extra super thrill for the ones still on cute cards!
There are a few items that are risky. Elastic and bias tapes that have been improperly stored are sometime brittle. But usually they are so cheap they are worth the risk.
And patterns aren't always complete... But some of them are worth it just for the envelopes alone.
This whole beautiful bunch of patterns and notions were from just 2 trips to the thrift store.
If you go thrifting, ask if they have a craft section. You never know what you might find!
Now my biggest question is: what do I sew first!?!
Go On, Get Your Thrift On!
Kiss For Luck,
