So . . . remember when I was complaining about the thrift and how I never find anything? Yeah, well lookie here:
Four aprons. Oh yes FOUR of them. All handmade and all gorgeous. I do not think these are vintage only because they are so clean! I'm sure they've never seen kitchen duty or even have been washed. This is my favorite:
The fabric at the top there is a hankie. So cute! Now what to do with them? Hmm. Well I'm sure I'll keep one and probably give one to a friend and perhaps I'll put one in the store. But in the meantime I'm just going to enjoy them and the fact that I finally found something worth sharing at the thrift.
Also found on that same trip was this adorable hand made bag:
This I am keeping. I've actually already carried it once. I love the fabrics and the shape and well everything about it!
Also that day I snagged these two handmade pillow covers:
Now me thinks that all of these lovely handmade things probably came from the same person. It makes me a little sad because I wonder did this person die and their relatives just shoveled all their handmade goodness into garbage bags and dumped it at the thrift? I'm hoping this person bought a condo in Boca and had to down size and is now playing gin rummy with the nice lady from next door. :)
What a stellar thrift trip! I also netted these vintage cake toppers:
These will definitely be in the store soon.
So I guess that makes up for the more lackluster trips, you think? I went yesterday and did find some sweet Shabby Chic tablecloths and the prettiest turquoise chenille bed spread. They are in the wash and I'll share soon. Perhaps the tide is turning?
