Thrift Store Score



I went thrifting this weekend in St. Cloud and made quite a haul. I'm completely excited about it. I got some 100% wool coats for felting, one of which is vintage and has great buttons. They also have some nice quality satin linings which I'll use in a project of some sort. I got some leather pants and a vintage coat for crafting. Again, the coat has some cool vintage buttons which I'm sure I'll put to use. I also picked up a silver teapot and container for planting succulents in, an apothecary jar for making a little terrarium, and lots of other odds and ends; crayons for the kids, moulds, old clothes pegs, etc. Fun stuff!
I also picked up this little handpainted brooch for my coat.





All of this fun cost me $68. Woo hoo! Now I can't wait to dig into these new supplies and see what I can make. Hooray for thrifting!

succulents rule! I just recently purchased a succulent from Monkeysalwayslook on etsy (you'd love her) I got a hen n' chick, but I also have one called a String of Buttons which would be SO you :lol:

Linda - auctions are great! I'm looking forward to hitting a few this year. Have fun!

Tumus - I saw Monkeysalwayslook when she was featured seller and I totally love her! When I saw the silver teapot in the thrift shop, my mind shot back to one she did with the string of pearls and I went aha! I just have to find the plant now. Our local greenhouse didn't have any succulents so I'll have to search a bit.
