Thrifting heaven

I visited a few local thrift stores, oh, 5 years ago or so. Nothing. I didn’t try again until a couple of weeks ago. I came out with some great vintage sheets and even better pillow cases. Then I went back last week. Found more. Twice this week. Today I had to make myself drive away from the thrift stores. I thought to myself – this is ridiculous, I can’t go every day. I can. But it would really be silly. I’ll go next week.

I don’t know what happened. It might be a fluke – but I’ll keep looking… Let me share some pics (click on the picture to see it bigger):

sheets…

more sheets…

even more sheets (these are all with smaller prints).

Some pillowcases:

And finally my favorite find (a sheet):

.and what do you know it’s vintage marimekko. Ha! I love it!

So what am I going to do with all this. I got plans. Sewing. And sharing. I want to share. So the plan for today is to cut some fat quarters from the sheets and tomorrow I will give you the details for the giveaway. (btw I washed all the sheets and pillowcases at least once at 140 F. Most of the stains are out and the smell – no more smell.)

    So lovely! I loved collecting those gorgeous old prints from thrift stores too (I no longer live in the US, there seem to be no good thrift stores outside the US!) Did you see that “ohfransson” organized a fat quarter swap for thrifted fabric a while ago? What a brilliant idea!!

      Yes, I saw that! I remember seeing stacks and stacks… and stacks of sheets. But I saw it well after it ended so I did not participate. Should there be another one? BTW.. stay tuned, I will be posting about the giveaway in the next couple of days (I might have said “tomorrow” in the post, but that’s probably not going to happen). Thanks for visiting!
