I think I'm thrifterstitious.
Somewhere along the line I've developed a little nonsensical ritual of following the Exact Same Route Every Single Time through the thrift stores I frequent and it has nothing to do with efficiency.
Here's the thrifterstitious part -- because if I change my route through the store, it will somehow affect the outcome of my shopping. I'm just sayin'...
You never know.
And good thing I stuck to my route because all kinds of vintage treasure turned up.
Like this vintage Hendryx birdcage. This may be the thing that sends me back to selling on eBay if I can even remember how to do that, it's been so long.
Pretty little vintage embroidered flower baskets that will get transformed into lavender sachets in the Doily Factory.
A sweet vintage embroidered tablecloth in yellow & blue, also destined to become sachets.
Wave after wave of delicate, detailed vintage crochet which, as my mother used to say, I need like 'a hole in the head.' (I know!)
This terrific vintage feedsack quilt top -- all hand-stitched by a very industrious vintage crafter.
There are so many fun prints on the quilt top that I made my own little quilt with them. A digital quilt, I mean. That still counts, right?
And my favorite piece of all -- just 10 cents.
Hopefully these fabrics will make it through all steps of the De-Dirtification process and come out clean & damage-free.
I'll keep my fingers crossed.
