Some people can't stand thrift stores but I'm not one of them. I'm always looking for something which stands out, is unique and can inspire me. I also love the search for an item that reminds me of my youth and of course I like the fact I'm not paying a lot for it.
I found this child's plate and fell in love with the graphics on it. I carried it around the store with me debating whether I "needed" it or not. Of course, I didn't but it charmed me so I bought it anyway. It now sorts out little trinkets in my studio.
The vintage fabric will become a stuffed animal. Probably a horse.
The main reason I was thrifting was to find some sweaters I could rip apart and reuse the yarn for another idea I have. I also scored two angora sweaters -- one in a light pink and one in a cream color -- which immediately became a stuffed bunny. I'll have pics tomorrow.
