I'm stealing Tracey's quote today because this weekend we certainly respected the thrift. I was trying to explain to a play date mom why I enjoy finding weird vintage stuff, but she looked at me like I was crazy. Lucky for me I have found this little corner of the world where other people get it. Fridays have turned into our rummage/thrift/yard/garage sale day. I'm thrilled my boys are enjoying doing this with me. B brings his little jar of change, and I nearly fell over when he huffed and said, "ugh, $2 and put the item back down."
I love rummage sales because they bring the church lady stuff - like these vintage transfers that had me doing the paranoid glancing around to see if anyone else noticed I was holding a big prize (or to the normal person, two really old ripped up envelopes). Inside are pages of vintage embroidery pattens on transfer paper and some sewing patterns:
There are many cute patterns - love the fork, knife, and spoon. How old do you think these are? I tried a short search, but came up empty. I'm also considering scanning some of these for you to download, but I am concerned if that is o.k. to do. I doubt they still sell these - what do you think? Not to rub it in, but I paid zero dollars for these - the ladies didn't know what to charge, so they said, "nothing."
Next, weird iron-on patches I may never use...well I will use the mushroom and the creepy one with the Indian motif.
Fabric bundle, purchased mainly for the bunnies;
Little People, because I can't stop playing with these;
Polaroid with film inside - not sure how many pictures left, but I will soon find out. 50 cents!
These are killing me with cute;
We bought a few old books and some toys and spent $5.55. I know. Don't hate me, I'm respecting the thrift.
