Thrift Stores




Anyone else here love thrift stores? I have been finding tracing wheels at my favorite thrift store lately, 50 cents each. They remind me of my mother who was a good seamstress. I never like to write "sewer" as it doesn't look correct! I found the little red sewing basket at a thrift store a few years back and it matches the powder blue one I had as a child.

The pincushions came from Etsy. Have a look at her pincushion dolls!

I love thrift stores. You just never know what you're going to find in them. And the prices are usually so cheap that you pick up things even if you don't need them.

Love that you're blogging again my friend!

I love collecting pin cushions, mainly antique/vintage ones because modern ones really aren't that interesting. But this one is so pretty, I am going to take a look at her other ones. I too also love to spend my weekends at thift and secondhand shops looking for sewing notions- great fun!!!.
