What Seven Bucks Can Buy


A local estate sale advertised vintage sewing & fabrics. The sale started yesterday, but since I was otherwise engaged yesterday, I did not make it there. I hadn't checked the mail for a few days so it was easy to talk myself into running out to the estate sale. There were all kinds of cool antiques and other goodies, but my focus was clear...must find sewing stuff! There wasn't a lot left, but the good thing was that everything under $50.00 was half price. I found 8 cuts of vintage fabric...A beautiful grey wool plaid,a cheery fuschia and teal plaid, a brown polka dot knit, a muted floral knit, a couple cuts of home dec weight fabric, a Jean-a-ma-jig and the American Fashion Institute Magic Fit Mastern Pattern for Pants that has a French Styling Curve and some pattern tracing paper. Whoohoo..Loving me a bargain! When I got home their was a message from my boss asking me to pick up another day this week...hmmmm...guess it's a good idea, but sure cuts into the sewing time...better get back at it while I have time!

Your sure picked up some nice goodies, Mary! That's a good tip about estate sales. I never thought of that but will start checking the paper for them.

Nice vintage items. I never think about estate sales having something "vintage", geez why I don't, I don't know but now I think I will have to look further into this.

That polka dot is to die for! If there's enough, I see a beautiful, slightly full skirt!!
