I'm running out of titles since I post about the same thing all the time

On Saturday I made the quickest trip to the thrift ever. I had a box to donate and John was with me, so while he dropped it off, I ran in and was able to find these treasures. One tablecloth and two queen sized sheets.
I think I was there, shopping, less than 5 minutes. Checking out was a different story. Anyway, they also had like 50 packs of zippers, but I didn't get any. I had intentions of going back yesterday because everything was 50% off, but, I restrained myself and got ready for our little BBQ instead. I'm sure it was a zoo and it would have been impossible to do any real treasure hunting.

All the packs with buttons and zippers that I had listed on etsy sold out. There are a few of the smaller packs left. So I'll be cutting up these new sheets and tablecloths to make more. Hopefully I'll get around to sewing something. My sewing space is "cleaner" now because I tried to make it presentable for our party. Maybe that'll inspire some creativity!

Oh, and I got another treasury this weekend. Go check it out. I think I just may have a little obsession on my hands!

I bow down to your thrifty greatness. I think you should start co-opting movie titles for all your thrifting adventures. "Katie Jean and the Tablecloth of Doom." "Six Degrees of Thriftiness." "Thrifters of the Carribbean."

LOL I never know what to name my posts either. :)

I got my wristlet and I LOVE IT! So cute. And I about died over the iron transfers! You know I'll use them right? You just wait. :)

I love your good packs, I was thinking of putting up more paper packs on Etsy, I did well with those and it was a nice way to get rid of some of my stash without feeling like a I wasted it. :) Maybe I should hit my fabric stash now since I'm not much of a sewer yet I still buy fabric hmm . . .
