thrifting

This is how it works at my favorite thrift store.  The stuff is marked with colored labels.  Prices are as marked, on Monday and Tuesday.  On Wednesday, one color label is half price and one color is $1.  This week, for the first time, I decided to try to go over on Wednesday morning.  Woohoo.  I came home, feeling like Santa Claus, with 2 large full bags of wool goodies.  I spent $13.

3 jackets, 2 skirts, 2 coats-

and 2 cashmere sweaters, 1 wool and angora, and 1  wool vest that someone in the house might actually wear.

So, I come up to the door, dragging my booty and there is a package on the stoop.  Presents!  Kristen sent me this wonderful toile tablecloth which she thrifted!

A great day for scoring materials!  I spent much of yesterday and this morning, cutting apart and washing all the woven wools.  I will do the knits another day.
Tomorrow night is the Craftland opening.  I’ll be there, for at least part of it.  I am looking forward to seeing the space all set up, the other work, and meet other artists.
