Every seamstresses dream...

is to come across boxes full of sewing goods that you get for dirt cheap. 

Well, that's been my dream at least. And this weekend, it happened! A girl my hubby went
to school with talked to me on Facebook because her mother-in-law was wanting to get
rid of some sewing/crocheting items. I told her I'd stop by and take a look. Never did I dream
of what I'd come across! A dresser full of vintage buttons, trimmings, ric rac, thread and 
items I didn't even know how to use! She also had a box full of vintage pillowcases
and crocheted items. She said I could take it all for $40. Heck YES! I was oh.so.excited. 

I packed up 1 box and 3 large paper shopping bags full of my goodies. Once we got home I began
to sort them.....

Just a few of the vintage items. The top left box is a roll of elastic,
which is still good!


Ric Rac and bias tape...again there's another box of this too!

That's a 11 quart tub of thread; and I still had another small box of more!
Plus millions of vintage buttons-LOVE!


That is just some of the stuff I got. I don't know for sure the dates but alot of the thread 
and rick rack was priced at 10cents! 


Stay tuned for posts on what I made with my finds!!!
