Thrifting Finds this Week

My sister Karan and I took an afternoon and had lunch out and checked out some new thrift shops.  She scored a few special finds and I found these:

I'm always needing buttons, so this was the first blouse I bought for the buttons. When I cut the buttons off I immediately re-purposed into a bag because I absolutely loved the pattern and the stretchy cotton fabric. Had I known I would do that I would have taken a "before" picture of the blouse!  $3.77

The square buttons are an inch square and they are carved!  Look how many were on the blouse!

We squealed over this find!
A Coldwater Creek Felted Vest with appliqued Snowman and embroidered trees and snowflakes!  $3.77

 Yellow tags were half price on Tuesday

And I picked up two of these shell sweaters for half price so both together were $3.39.


I already turned the orange one into a bag last Tuesday when we shopped.  I should have taken it this morning when I was rockin' all that orange but I forgot I had it.  I love it!

I'm playing the game at Her Library Adventures...Flea Market Finds.  So fun to see what everyone else found!
