What do you thrift for?
I post a lot of fabric here, and other linens, because it's easy to scan.
But I find ALL KINDS of goodies.
Like this fun crocheted rug, handmade and basically felted.
The owner must have not liked the outcome, but I love it.
Miscellaneous stuff, like these apple ornaments that match my apple wreath and apple garland (those were full-price deals).
Decorating with fruit, even faux, just feels fresh.
Sewing notions and patterns (duh)
I have paid as low as 10 cents, sometimes 35 or 50 cents, but usually 95 cents.
Rummage sale prices are usually at a quarter.
aprons (detail of the pocket here because it's so precious)
Thrift store price for this apron: $2.50. No, I take that back--I think it was $1.50. And it's in mint condition.
I also love stoneware, and I have a soft spot for canisters and dishes.
I regularly find clothing, and of course supplies for art work.
I've mentioned old games and books, but I also like tins. I am learning about crafting with metal, and these can be cut up and used to make dolls, etc.
I have found toys for kids (the ones who don't care it's second-hand). And every once in a while, I score furniture.
Bookcase that I may eventually mosaic.
Thiftstore price: $7.95.
I have a similar one I found in an alley on trash day.
Nothing wrong with either one.
