I have a confession. I went back to the thrift store to see if that Singer 503 was still there. And just what was I going to do if it was? Stare at it some more? Try to find a good reason to justify me not buying it? I wasn't sure, but like a criminal returning to the scene of the crime, I went.
And it was gone. Whew! No longer an option. It had found a new home. Good!
But since I was in the store, I may as well have a look around, right?
"Oh, look!" I said to Norm in the dishes aisle. "Aren't these cool? Only 49 cents apiece." I pushed aside the price sticker on the bottom of a cup to reveal the mark beneath. "Well, will you look at that, Georges Briard." No wonder I liked them. His stuff has caught my eye (and Norm's) before. This particular pattern is called Carousel.
When I got to the checkout, the clerk said there had been dinner plates as well, but someone else bought those earlier in the day.
I also found some fabric. I get such a kick out of finding good fabric in the thrift store. It's a different thrill than regular fabric store shopping. Sort of like spotting a rare bird where you don't expect to see one.
The top four fabrics are batiks, about 3/4 yard each, except there's probably a couple yards of the purple.
So I'm joining Favourite Things Friday today, because good thrift finds are my favorite thing this week (and any week!).
