Flea Market Finds on a Saturday and the rain continues!!!

Well.  I did go to a garage sale.  Dropped Husband off at home and zoomed around the corner and up the road.  The rain was POURING down but I toodled around and found NOTHING!  Such a disappointment!!!

Earlier though, at the thrift store, I found some wooden Coats thread spools.  The big spools too!  And they were cheap.  50 cents for the pair.  The zippers came home too along with a really lovely cross weave cotton.  Kind of a boring colour but neutrals are always handy.   But I was really delighted to find this wee vintage doll plate for the grand sum of 25 cents.  Cute!  I am happy to report that I have taken 3 large boxes of STUFF to the thrift store over the last two weekends and have another box ready to go as we speak.  I love handing off giant boxes of STUFF!!!!  I think that I am definitely in the black with thrift store finds lately as more stuff is being donated than is finding its way home!

I spent the day filling up my fabric shelves and I cannot wait to show them off.  Seriously makes me so happy  to play with all my fabric.  And it all fits.  Happy dance!!!!!!

Linking up with Sophie's Flea Market Finds.  Check out all the other lovely treasures that have found their way home this week!


  1. Send some of that rain my way, it is so dry in Wisconsin. I remember the little tin plates, good memories were brought back with that photo.

  2. waiting for a picture of those full fabric shelves so that I can "sigh with envy"!

  3. I love giving boxes of stuff to Goodwill too! Makes me happy!

  4. We have had a lot of rain here over the past two weeks, but today was beautiful. I love sorting my fabric too! Can't wait to see the shelves with all your fabric.

  5. Great finds - cute cute plate. Well done on the boxes going to the thrift store and dying to see you neatly stacked fabrics! lucky girl!
