Thrifty Thursday #89

     I'm back in the groove of making my weekly stop at the thrift stores- I hope. Two weeks in a row is at least the start of a groove, right? :)
     I didn't find anything that knocked my socks off, but I did get some good small items.

I got this book for a quarter- I can tell from the cover that it's old.
I love, love, love the graphics!
Someday when I get my dream job of designing scrapbook paper, I hope to use some of these awesome vintage images.
Is that against copyright laws, I wonder?

A few weeks ago, I showed you some beautiful vintage postcards that I found. Believe it or not, the thrift store still had some- and they had marked them down to twenty five cents each!
I went back through the pile and found a few more.

So pretty.

I am always drawn to handmade things- like this doily.
It was only a quarter!
I'm building my collection of these and plan to sew them together to make a long table runner.

I spotted a basket of fabric for twenty five cents per piece.
I love the colors on this, and there's enough of it to make 2-3 pillows.
Can't beat the price, that's for sure.

I also picked up this piece. I thought it would look cute on a reupholstered chair.
There was quite a bit more fabric to choose from, but these were the only two pieces
that I was drawn to.
That's my loot. I think my magic price today was twenty five cents!
You could never peg me as a big spender:)
Good luck to you with your secondhand shopping this week. Our weather has been beautiful, so I'm hoping that I can make it to some yard sales on Saturday morning!
Thanks so much for stopping by and God bless.
But the Lord is with me as a mighty, awesome One.

Those old Betty Crocker books are so cute. I found that very one reissued for my daughter last year at a liquidation store
