Craft materials galore

German Word game
Really odd that I'd do two posts in a row that feature games, when I buy so many other items more often...but this is just such a fun find. If you do collage, mosaic, or multi-media art, thrift shops are ripe with materials. This is a German word game, will be perfect for art projects, and it was only 79 cents! Note the umlaut over the U and the O! Cool, huh?!

I also got this cute lap quilt (baby quilt?) today, with this rockin' fabric with a girl skipping rope.

She charged me something ridiculous, like $1.39 or something (I can't find my receipt). It's in great condition, would make a cute picnic tablecloth, or perhaps the fabric can be reused. There's a label on it stating it was made by a quilting group or guild, so I'm thinking it may have initially gone to a premature child or a sick child????

Also today I got a pair of leather Enzo shoes for less than $3, some vintage children's books (also for collage and only 39 cents each), fabric pieces, and I can't remember what else. Country stores often have great prices.

I tend to stop when I see a thrift store sign. This one was in Ramona.

Aaaahhh! I live right outside of Ramona. I stop at the thrift store every time I "go into town." How could I have missed that one! Lucky you!
