Hidey Do! I have some thrifting finds to share with you today. The first one is from a new spot I have been visiting. It is a high end resale place. Still a thrift, but set up like a store, and everything in there is very nice. I could not believe my luck one day when I stumbled upon a whole rack of mens dress shirts. They were all beautiful shirts. Expensive shirts. Tommy Bahama, Reyn Spooner, and Faconable. Shirts that would cost 100 dollars and more in a department store.
I was trying to decide which ones to get, as they were priced at about 10 to 12 dollars each. When I had finally made up my mind, the lady at the register told me that they were having a stuff a bag sale, and that anything I could fit into the provided bag, was 24 dollars. She said, just go back and get them all! And so I did.
They were all freshly laundered, starched, and still had the paper dry cleaning tag on them.
I believe there were 23 in total that I got.
At a different place, a few weeks ago, I found this beautiful quilt. It is actually from the kids line for Pottery Barn.
It is a full sized quilt, very gently used. I adore the sweet pink and green on the butter yellow. It had the two matching shams, with tie closures.
It is all freshly washed and line dried.
The binding is a spring green, cut on the bias. It is a very well made set. I also picked up the pink duvet cover, with a companion fabric on opposite side.
I was going to list it on Craig's List, but think I may keep it for when I have a guest room again.
Last week, a local church had their big rummage sale. It was a very hot morning, so I didn't stay long. Just long enough for a few finds.
This three tiered basket storage piece, with canvas cover. I have it shown with the canvas cover rolled to the back to expose the front baskets. But it can be completely covered up too. It is on casters and works perfectly for my sewing room. It was 5.00. Sitting on top of this storage piece, is a vintage aqua dish drainer holding some of the fabric stash that I am using for the Farm Girl Vintage Sew Along.
A flower rug, for a dollar.
An aqua ottoman for 2 dollars. Perfect for my sewing room, for the storage, as well as the color!
On a different day, at another place......
I have had a lot of good luck in my favorite shops lately. How about you? Any good finds at the thrifts?
I have been spending a lot of time in my sewing room lately. I am having a ball with my new embroidery machine(s). I had kind of thought that I would sell the first one I found in the thrift shop, after I got the new machine. But I absolutely love this little gem of a machine. It has such a beautiful stitch. And a very easy to follow and navigate LED display board to navigate your editing on. Even without a manual, it has been an easy to use machine. And so fun. I actually like some of the features on this machine better than the brand new one. So, needless to say, I am keeping it!
I will be back soon with more. Hope all of you are well and enjoying Spring. I am trying to get caught up with all of you.
