I told you that I would share some of my purchases from this weekend. Today I'm showing 2 of my yard sale finds. I love going to antique stores. But, I don't love shopping at antique stores. They are just where I do some of my research. After I remind myself how expensive the things I love are, I have a better idea of what I'm looking for at yard sales, estate sales and thrift stores.
These .50 cent vintage bark cloth pillow covers, I like! They will keep me cozy when I'm lazing in my tree swing. They will be stuffed with 2 feather pillows that I will make from a brand new one purchased for $2.00. Had I bought something similar at the antique store it would have been the equivalent in cash to at least 2 days food for my family. I just wouldn't do it.
This is the .50 cent apron that jumped into my hands at the first sale as we were leaving town. Cute huh?
It's a good thing I grabbed it because this afternoon Audrey needed to protect her clothes when she decided to make and decorate a cake for prayer meeting. I'll share more finds from the weekend later!
