I realized that today is the last day to add my thrifted finds for the $99 thrift challenge and I have some good ones! Without further ado, here they are. This one above is a piece of fabric I picked up this weekend for $4 (again with the four dollars...). It is just over a yard and the color is amazing. It is silk screened and the repeat is huge. I put the spool of thread on it for scale. I know exactly what I want to do with this.
More of my favorites. The chickens we a big 70 cents and the bunny which is just one of the kooky animals on here was 50 cents because it was half off day today. Excuse the shadows! I so love those chickens. Both are polished cotton which is new for me but too cute to pass up.
Love this! And yes, it says 20 cents (!) its probably a quarter yard but like I said, I love this!
This amazing little wicker suitcase was a whole buck and I am thinking about lining it with some nice cotton. It is so cute. The mess of stuff in it is yards and yards of old fashioned velvet chenille. Can you believe those colors? I thought they were chenille stems but I unwrapped them and it is all just yards and yards. What can I make out of these? I love them! And the lot of them were $3. Yay!
This is from two weekends ago. Look at all the wooden spools. I love the colors and I love the wooden spools with the writing burned in the top and there are about 12 of those kind in here. I was so excited because the whole basket of them were 25 cents. One quarter. These women were crazy. They just wanted to get rid of it all and I was more than happy to help!
Two lovely sweaters. The blue is an Eileen Fisher which the woman told me must have cost she doesn't even know how much and the pink is the nicest buff pink. Plus its yummy yummy 100% hardly worn cashmere. They were each a quarter. 50 cents for the two-less than a hershey bar. I almost forgot I also got my Mom a wool Ralph Lauren barely worn blazer (do you call them blazers? That feels cheesey to me) also one quarter. I told you these women were crazy. Good crazy though.
Last but not least, some great eyelet lace and a beautiful scarf that would look so cute framed in M's room. Scarf was , you guessed it, 25 cents and the lace for the two was 2.50. The eyelet says there is 15 yards. I am going to dye the other cotton lace for fun.
Oh I was wrong- this is the last one. The stack of yummy fabrics I got. I pulled out my absolute favorites at the top but these are all great too. I don't even know the total o these but I think it was about 10.00-certainly not more. I have lots of plans for individual items and I would love to see how people use their thrifted finds. So much of the fun for me is the hunt but I like also to see how the things integrate into a home. Hope everyone else had as much fun with this this month as I did! Thanks Selena!
