Thrift Stores

I’ve been hunting for a sewing machine table since I got the new machine _9960.  (No , I don’t have a name for her yet.)   While going to Big Lots store to grab a few things, I saw this “community Thrift shop” store and had to browse around it to see if they had a “table’ that I could use.   Well, no luck finding a sewing machine table or cabinet.. but HONEY!! 

  I did find—

  Chelsea Garden Designed by Margrit Hall.  All Robert Kaufman fabric sold by Peddlers Way Quilt Company..  Its a complete appliqued 9 block quilt(12 inches) with all the fillers and backing fabric.. The pattern (instructions for construction) and flower template included) original cost–around 300$$.. I got it for $125.00

  Just what the label says!! huge roll of vintage fabrics!! Cost to me– $30.00

     This is called Layer Cake Recipe KIT for a Twin size Quilt.  (77×91) Fabrics by Latern Bloom collection & Poppy Collection from Cozy Quilts. com  2007.  It has 30 layer cakes (10×10 inches)  15 Quarter cuts with pattern, border fabric and Backing fabric included.. all for $59.00.   Over $100 if bought new..   

Then at the Check out  I find that Tuesdays are Senior Citizen DISCOUNT DAY……Another $25.00 savings!    YEA for ME.   DD#2 says This should keep me busy for awhile.   UNDERSTATEMENT.

The rain was coming down in torrents, but I have my FABRIC to keep me dry: I’m inside playing in the sewing area.     I love the Thrift shops…even tho I still don’t have a decent sewing table/cabinet.   And I’ll continue looking since  half the fun of hunting for one is the Unexpected bonus’s and BARGAINS.
