thrifted: craft supplies

knitting needles and doilies

Before 7am on Saturday morning, I was setting up a little garage sale with my madre. I was semi-successful in getting rid of old clothes and stuff. Enough to make me look forward to a future garage sale and de-cluttering the downstairs walk-in, which was the place we hid our non-essentials when we first moved in. Even my son made a couple of bucks selling his toys.

After we finished packing some stuff up, I took a shower and we headed to our favorite thrift store about an hour before close. It’s a ministry shop, so there’s always new things and usually my favorite types–stuff from an old lady’s craft basket.

Sunshine did not disappoint! I found: a little box full of crocheted lace (doilies and collars), a few sets of knitting needles, including 4 sets of DPNs and a circular, and some embroidery floss.

We headed across town to my uncle’s house and stopped at a thrift store we used to go to every weekend. There, I found this old plastic faux-woven box, a pyrex fridgie, a few bags of needlepoint supplies (wool & canvas!), 3 fabric button kits, a polaroid camera, a sun tea pitcher, and more.

It was definitely my lucky day in terms of craft supplies.

Later, I’ll share a new hat! The shape of the week (maybe month, now?) was triangles. Andrew is pretty good with shapes, so I tried getting him to draw one. No luck, but he likes pointing them out, so that’s good. Anyway, I did some needlepoint triangles last weekend and this past weekend I knit some. More details later!
