Here is one of my thrift store finds of recent. I was looking in the area of where things like this should be but didn't see it. A couple walked by me and I heard this lady's husband tell her about this huge basket of cones of thread. My first thought was "why didn't I see that" and then I said a little prayer that the lady would not want it. Then I heard the lady say, I could have really used that a few years back. Wow that was a close call. I rushed to it and grabbed it up. I have started sewing of late and this is what was on the bottom shelf that I didn't see........shame on me. This came at a great time as I am using a lot of thread for the Remains of the Day class I am taking on line. There are 18 cones of thread for a mere $4......oh, it was Senior Day for another 20% off......
You can always use lace in your artwork. I think I paid $3 for this huge thing of beautiful lace. Although I will never use all of it myself, I have given a lot of it away to friends.
Here is some more lace that I found which I thought was nice.
Another find that was exciting to me was a box of security envelopes because Mary Ann uses them in her Remains of the Day Journal. Although I get some in the mail everyday, this was just perfect to have all of these new ones on hand. And it goes without saying that I will be giving away some too.
