I’ve just not been feeling the thrifting vibe lately – have nae garaged sailed for two weeks in a row and have frequented the oppies much less, and with dampened enthusiasm. Maybe it’s the weather… it really is so nice inside in front of the heater, lounging in my fluffy robe…
Despite the opping downturn, I did pick up some nice things this week within the vintage crafty theme.
Many old knitting pattern books – and yet I STILL am yet to find my next project.
Sunset series craft books – I love some of the projects and photos in these, like the funkiest crochet dress I have ever seen….
A few vintage sewing patterns, I don’t think I really kid myself that I am ever going to make any of them, but the pattern illustrations are so freaking cute!
The irony of carded vintage self cover buttons… I want them, I could use them (“..no skill required..”), but I won’t, ‘cause they’re too cute as they are.
And maybe my fave of the week, knitted square blankie for the couch, a steal at $3 – usually knit or crochet blankets are stoopid expensive, so I grabbed this one the second I saw the price, it’s purty too, which helps.
For more thrifted goodness, Sophie will sort you out!
