I heart thrift stores
Not only do I love thrift stores for the prices, but the finds are unbelievable. I’m the type who is willing to commit to rummaging around to find the diamond in the rough. And yes, I go to the shops quite frequently. I wanted to show you some of my recent textile finds.
Man, these are great. I now have a whole section in the studio for just vintage sheets. Who knows what they will all become??? I have started buying only flat sheets or pillowcases- unless its a pattern/print that I cannot pass up, then I’ll buy the fitted sheet. I mean, a fitted sheet has a little more work involved, removing the elastic and then you have sections of the sheet that you cannot use. I think fitted sheets get more wear and seem to be a bit more faded in the middle as well. Anyway, these finds are 2 flat sheets and a pillowcase and I just dig them.
I wonder if my daughter will let me make another pair of gauchos for this spring? She’s starting to get quite picky with “stuff my mom made” clothing. Ah… the tweens….
