Thrift Stores Here I Come

I spent some time today visiting some thrift stores.  I went back to the Sparrows Nest in Cary to look at the vintage linens.  Alot had been sold since I was there on Saturday.  I did buy 3 today.  One was pretty with daisies, one was with crochet flowers and the other one had orange beads sewn right in while it was being crocheted.  I really loved all of the pieces.  Others on line were buying doilies too.  They change them seasonally in their homes just as I do.  I think we convinced another lady on line to do that too.  I also bought a flower sign to use outside in my garden.  It will be cute when I find the perfect spot for it in the Spring. 

I also stopped at Savers in Crystal Lake.  Monday is 25% off.  I found some blue material (74 cents and $1.49) to finally begin the quilt I want to make for Austin's room.  I needed some blue material and now that I found it, I have no more excuses to start it.  I also found a great vintage Christmas tablecloth with Santa and his reindeers ($2.99-fabulous price).  Love it!  I splurged a little on a Fenton (signed) milk glass basket with roses all around it.  It was, with the discount, $11.00.  I also found a cute aluminum piece for $1.49.  On Feb 20th, the store will be 50% off.  Guess where I'll be?
