So we finally had some successful yard sale-ing this past Saturday. There was a craft and quilt sale advertised so I wanted to have a look. It was a few older ladies selling crafts and smaller quilts, but they were also selling things that they couldn't use, like trims and buttons. My eyes just about popped out of my head when I saw the basketfuls of zippers, trims, buttons, and laces. And guess how much they were charging?! 5 or 10 CENTS!! I felt so guilty, almost like I was stealing. That obviously didn't keep me from buying tons, though!
Almost every single package of trim was still sealed, and I also got 10 zippers. What a score! It just made my day. I also found some awesome vintage chenille in red and green - I can't wait to use it for Christmas decorating.
Look at this trim card - I love the font! And the name....how cool is that? I'm pretty sure that I've used up all my yard sale luck for the summer. I would really love to find some old quilts though. Fingers crossed!
