Thrifting Excitement!

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.


Must. make. these.

My boys need this.

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!
