Fabric Ticker

Thrifty and Crafty

Jan. 25, 2011  Awesome Finds!

LAST weekend, I came across a poor old, beat up, rusty, dilapidated Metal Cabinet with it's original chrome hardware handles.  It looks ugly NOW.. but wait til I put some Love on it! ;)  I'll post the 'after' pics in a couple of months; I'm sure it'll look as different as my house did, before/after!!! :)  There's something to be said for giving 'new life' to vintage things.

Standing in front are two vintage magazine racks.  The gold one on the left went on Ebay and already has a new home in Southern CA!  The other I'm painting and keeping for a while ;)

This last Saturday, rain, cold and all, found only 5 sales in a 20 mile area; two were really early, but I went anyway - and I'm sooo glad I did.  The first moving sale provide the rotary cutting mat I wanted for my Daughter to go with her machine.  I was actually considering buying her a new one (price.. $42! eek)  The one at the sale? $5!!  And.. I'm so jealous.. it's PINK on one side :)

This sale was definitely the highlight of the day and also yielded a HUGE box of fabric, a bag of fabric from Paris, and about ten plastic storage boxes.  Fun Fun FUN!!!  

I can't seem to post on the pages I want, so I'll just keep a running dialog with dividers between.
     Today, I finally gathered all the needed elements to begin construction on my cute and crafty little pin cushions.  More on that later.  Right now, I'm waiting for some special glue to dry overnight before I can continue.

As the title implies: this page will be dedicated to all the great finds I come across at vintage sales, as well as a cute craft item or two.
