todays thrift score

believe it or not, it's been a loooong time since i entered a thrift shop. a few years ago when i lived in a different neighborhood, i used to always trek up here for the thrifts...and now that i live close by my old favorite haunts, i seldom pop in. funny how that works, eh? well today i found myself in need of more cotton rag to stuff my sock monkeys (you'd be surprised how much i use for each one) so what better excuse than to hit the thrift! i found an amazing length of vanity house 'new old stock' muslin, the good stuff with the super high thread count~ crisply folded and still had the original label on it. almost too good to cut up, but i will put it to good use. also scored vintage cotton polka dots, raggedy ann sheet, funky red/white/blue florals and bright lime green leopard print. oh, and one batik wrap skirt for me :)

more oft than not, the thrifts here are very picked over nowadays, so it was nice to leave with a tidy little bundle of happiness to make more bundles of happiness (ie: that means sock monkeys for you!)

have a fabulous holiday weekend!!! (^___^)
