I absolutely adore thrift stores. I mean seriously, cheap clothes, home decor, fabric… what’s not to love about that?
Usually I go in with an eye for repurposing, but on my recent visit, I found a book that nearly had me squealing with delight in the aisle.
I almost passed it by, but I’m so glad I didn’t. This little gem is 30 years old [is that considered vintage? If so, then so am I…] and is filled with patterns and instructions for all things baby.
This jumpsuit makes me desperately want to learn to knit something other than a scarf.
I don’t crochet, but I need to after seeing this picture.
Oh the loveliness of this coat!
This romper has a zipper in the front. Oh how much I love it.
There are so many delightful patterns in this book, and I can’t wait to try them out! [Insert excited squeal here!]
Have you found any exciting thrift store finds lately? Please share!
I have a book from our local library book sale that is from the 80’s too, and it has some great stuff in it. Some terribly dated stuff, but some stuff that is just perfect!
