I ducked into the thrift shop while Christmas shopping because one of the boys had added a book to his list that I was sure I'd seen there earlier. What kind of sense does it make to spend eight bucks on a brand new paperback when I can get the same book for seventy-nine cents? (And when the child in question understands that used book = more money for other presents.)
It was a quick trip, but I did stumble across this.
I had to turn it sideways to figure out that the flowers are made up of painted nail heads. This is one of those things that Great-Grandma totally would have made back in the day. Makes me wonder if she never saw the pattern....and that made me want it. I left it for someone else who has more of a love of vintage projects and a better idea for getting rid of all of that dust.
These were more tempting. I see Aunt Martha's transfers now and then, but rarely so much Vogart. Most of them were run-of-the-mill embroidery patterns, but I'd never seen those peacocks or ladies before and I do plan on learning to crochet and they were cheap. So those two are mine now.
It was a good day for things I've never seen before. For someone who has this particular vintage record player these would have been a good find...if the picture strips of every last one weren't missing. I'd never seen one of these before, but if you're as curious as I was, you can find youtube videos showing them in action.
Have you found anything interesting lately, or were you too busy with the holidays?
