FINALLY!! I have so missed posting about my finds because I have not found anything lately. I went out by myself this morning with cash in hand ready to find some lovely treasures. I went 45 minutes before ever getting out of the car because every garage sale I went to there was nothing interesting at all. Then it happened. I drove up to THE garage sale. I knew it was going to be fun when I saw a sweet older lady running the sale, and I saw a bunch of boxes of fabric. I BURST OUT OF THE CAR! I was so excited. The real test was going to be prices. I listened for a bit to see some of the prices she was giving other customers and they were fantastic.
Here are the wonderful things I found
I saw this cute gingham box sitting on one of her tables
When I opened the box I discovered all of these wonderful sewing directions and patterns
Each picture has a matching pattern and directions on how to make the items in the picture. Its so wonderfully sweet. The box has patterns for pillows and aprons, and everything 70's and vintage.
You might be wondering how much I paid for this box of wonderfullness, and the answer is $1.00. I know pretty wonderful.
I bought a whole box of vintage fabric for $1.00. I am not sure what will come of this wonderful fabric, but I have some great ideas. Posts to follow.
She also had a whole bin of vintage patterns she was selling for $0.10 a piece. I bought 10 patterns, and I can't wait to use them in my craft room.
I was so happy after leaving this sale with all of my cute finds.
After finishing up at a few more garage sales I went to the swap meet to see what treasures could be found there. I saw these lovely Fenton glass dishes. I have done a bit of research and Fenton glass seems to be collectable. I paid $1.00 for the both of these little dishes.
I think they are so pretty
At the same sale I bought these glass ornaments for $0.50.
Hope you all had a wonderfully thrifty week!
