Ahhh- the feeling of getting a GIANT bag of vintage fabric and linens is indescribable! As I was running my usual boring errands this morning, a little sign caught my eye. Not only did it catch my eye- it drew me in. Those 2 words I love "Estate Sale". One illegal U turn later I found myself in a world I love- where everything is $1 (and I don't mean the Dollar Store). A table was piled high with vintage linens, barkcloth, & feedsacks. While everyone is digging through the costume jewelry, an elderly woman & myself raced to get the good fabric. $1 a piece!
Here's a handful of my loot- I just love looking at it! I am so inspired by these fabrics I can't wait to make totes & pillows, lavender sachets & laptop sleeves......
When I got home, I ran in the house to show Mike my GIANT bag of fabric- and he just rolled his eyes. I can't believe not everyone "gets" this.
So now, I vowed to always keep a $20 bill hidden in my car, so whenever I see those 2 magical words- "Estate Sale"- I'll be good to go.
Have a great weekend :)
