Recent Yard Sale finds

I have had enormously good luck at yard sales recently. There have been several "cleaning out Grandma's house" yard sales which are my favs and always makes Mike laugh because he thinks I'm an 80 year old woman trapped in a 26 year old body. What he doesn't know is that old patterns and crocheting are COOL now. So there.

I found lots of fabric...

Awesome mushroom fabric, patterns and a big bag of crochet thread for $1...

I think I actually gasped when I found this bag. It's vintage bark cloth, and so big it shall now be my Mary Poppins bag.

And these accordions (there are two) that you saw in this post. They were $2 each (!) and Ali and Devin love them.

I also got a large box full of beads, felt, feathers and randomness including little boxes not looked at in years filled with trinkets that once meant something to someone. Treasures galore!
