It seems I'm working on a collection. It must've started when I received vintage patterns that were my great-grandmothers. Add to that my love of old movies and the great styles from bygone years. Now, perhaps that would explain how these charmed their way into my basket at the first thrift store stop yesterday. It seemed I had some good thrifting mojo with me and I did have errands in another part of the city (hear me rationalizing my thrifting lust here?)I thought I'd stop at another local thrift store for a look see. I was looking for zippers, but when I come across interesting cotton fabrics - I don't hesistate bringing them home with me.
Shown next is one of the best things about this particular thrift store. After the grandmotherly volunteer added up the cost of my fabric, she scooped up all of the patterns and notions I had on the counter, stuffed them into my fabric shopping bags and didn't charge me for them. Yeah. You read that right. Shown below is what I got for free.
Ahem. Obviously, my vintage pattern love has me enlarging my children's pattern collection, not just ladies fashions. Then there's some needlework patterns thrown in for variety. ;o)
Oh, yeah, I did find the zippers I originally went there to look for.
