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):




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.)
