Rummage sale finds :)

A church in my town has a big rummage sale twice a year. On Thursday, the items are marked with individual prices. On Friday, they pass out brown paper sacks and everything is $1 a sack full. I spent $5, got 4 sacks and a full length mirror and hat box.
I have been going to these sales for years. Nina remembers her first pair of real designer jeans came from this sale, I think she was in 7th grade.
I should of taken pictures of everything but only took this one of my favorite purchase, a big stash of fabric. Most of it is cotton, perfect for quilts. And I love the aqua polka dots, it is 3 long pieces, about 20 inches wide. I plan on using it for place mats for our breakfast nook.
Now if my sewing machine would ever get fixed.....It has been 11 days and I called about it this morning but it is still not ready.

  1. I would have loved to have gone to that rummage sale. I love to find fabric at thrift shops or rummage sales. Great deals you got!!!

  2. I'm thinking you might be the rummage sale queen, or at least getting pretty close to our pastor...the things she finds just blows me away! I've got to get out more, lol.

  3. You are so lucky to have your craft room as you have so many good sales and thrift shops near you with all these lovely bargains.


Thank you so much for spending some time and leaving a comment at A Home With A Smile.
