When I have a few minutes between my commitments and find myself in the area of a flea market, thrift shop or garage sale I hunt for 100% wool sweaters, suit jackets, skirts, and scarves, along with genuine leather belts and 100% silk ties. I get more for my money there and everything I make is original and one of a kind! Last week I visited my favorite thrift shop and it was 50% off everything day!!! Woo hoooo, jackpot!!! Look at what I got for $20.00!!! Not too shabby eh?
I believe there is enough wool here to make tons of wool penny projects, a purse or a seasonal candle mat or two!
100% wool, silk or leather!
100% Italian silk, dahling, so elegant!
The leather belts make great purse straps.
Don't you think the ties will make a beautiful little clutch purse?
I believe this sweater will become a beautiful pair of wool mittens...or maybe two pair of wool mittens! Won't the leafy vine make a pretty accent or cuff?
I'm so happy to get a good deal on my supplies, and it is great inspiration to get busy!! Check back to see what I whip up with my thrifty bargains!
