Thrift and antique store finds
Over the past month, I’ve hit a few thrift and antique stores. I hadn’t had a successful trip in a while, but recently I had a rash of extremely satisfying finds.
I found many cuts of vintage fabrics.
One of my sister-in-laws received the vintage train case below for Christmas. I thought of her immediately when I spotted it in an antique store.
Occasionally, I browse the cute but overpriced offerings at a vintage consignment shop in a nearby town. I usually leave empty-handed, but last month I found this cute ’50s/’60s shirt.
It was reasonably priced, but still more than I’m usually willing to pay. However, it begged to come home with me. It even has a zipper up the side for a perfect fit, which is rare with modern shirts.
P.S. I promise there are sewing posts in the works for next week!
