I had a good day at the thrift store last week. I was just popping in to see what bags of crafty goodness they might have and I hit the mother lode!
I've told you before that one of my local thrift stores has a section of bagged up threads, beads, zippers and lace. It is a hit or miss kind of thing and you really need to bend down and move some things around. I am such a wimpy thrifter and digging through piles of dusty junk is not my favorite thing to do but this section has produced such gems that it is totally worth it.
Most of the bags are marked $3.95 no matter what is in them. Remember my amazing bag of embroidery threads?...$3.95 and my bag of 108 zippers?...$3.95.
Now add to that list my ginormous bag of lace.
Believe it or not I almost set this bag back down. It didn't look that promising when I first spied it. It had a few zippers and some old elastic tucked in it. In fact, if it wasn't for this luscious vintage sheet I found for $2.00 and was going to wait in line to pay for anyway, I might very well have walked out without all this loveliness.
Thirty different cuts of lace and most of the lengths are pretty substantial. A few over 10 yards long! Okay, am I the only one excited about this score?
Now my A.D.D. crafters mind is reeling with the possibilities!
On another note, I used my Christmas money to sign up for this photography class. You will find me this Saturday at the Crescendoh Studios in Santa Ana trying to figure out how to really use my big girl camera. It sounded like such a good idea at the time but now I am wondering how much this old girls brain can really absorb. I will let you know on Monday...by then the smoke should be done coming out of my ears!
Have a wonderful weekend.
