Are you one who gets the newspaper (yes, some of us are still 'old school' and read an actual paper in print not online)and immediately turns to the classified to find the garage and estate sales coming up? (Raise hand high!!)
Ok, I confess, I also log onto Craigslist daily and immediate check the garage sale category for interesting sales.
We hit the "motherload" of vintage and new fabric, lace, trims and craft items!! We started stacking boxes and tubs, not even sure what the other had found. My friend (in the 2nd photo) is an excellent seamstress so she was looking for different things than I was, so it all worked out perfectly!
We loaded something like 10 boxes and tubs of "treasures" prepared to pay dearly, but the vendor gave us a fantastic price and I whipped out the cash before he changed his mind.
So, if you are in need of gorgeous lace (both vintage and new) and trims of all types plus velvets, brocades, and other fancy fabrics and some assorted craft items, contact us. We have TONS!! We'll be taking it along with all the stashes we already had to some of our upcoming shows.
Next blog (and I promise not to be so delinquent in blogging next time) will feature some of Elaine's treasures she found at an antique store in Brady, Texas (hint... VERY vintage and wearable).
'til next time, blessings to you.
