Thrifting Update - April 16

I did get to the thrift store and a couple sales this past week but I tried really hard to be quite choosy as to what I bought.

Here is most of the stuff minus a few books.

Two embroidery hoops at Goodwill for .25 each that I am going to turn into wall art using the tablecloth I already had.

An adorable children's pajama pattern found at Goodwill. I just love the picture! The little girl is combing her hair and the joy on the little boy's face is fabulous!

A lovely painted box found at an estate sale (I bought 2 books at the sale as well - a Moosewood Cookbook for me and a field guide for my nephew). The ship book ends were found at a different estate sale where I also bought the silver jewelry box in the photo below. The sunflower linen above and the Dutch children linen below were found at a garage sale along with the best pick of the week...keeping scrolling to see what that is!

I am drawn to crewel these days! This Japanese winter scene was found at Goodwill for 1/2 off.
It is lovely and has a great texture!
I picked this crewel up the week before and forgot to take a picture. I LOVE it! I found it at a garage sale for .50 and it is already hanging on my dining room wall. 
My second favorite find of the week! This dala horse (and the two Scandinavian wooden plates in the first photo) were found at a little flea market. I paid $2 for this fabulous little guy! He will be living at my house and is already liking his new home amongst my other wooden ethnic painted pieces.

AND the piece de resistance (did I spell that right???)! A vintage feedsack quilt in the double wedding ring pattern! And I paid $20! (And that included the sunflower and Dutch kids linens!) It is in near perfect condition with no stains or tears! Have not decided where this is going to go - online, Weekend Cottage in Clear Lake or up north to Exit 55 in Fergus Galls or Yesterday's in Alexandria. I am just loving this find!

Linking up with Apron Thrift Girl and Her Library Adventures.


  1. Beautiful finds sweet friend! Love the quilt! You had a fantastic wee end! xo~Paula

  2. Awesome, awesome quilt! I found a feedsack quilt at a garage/estate sale for $25. It is probably one of my Top 5 or maybe even Top 3 finds EVER! Your quilt is just beautiful. And I love the Dutch redwork. :)
