Fun Friday (June 8) Report

This past Friday I went to a 60 years worth of craft stash sale! It was amazing, I had never seen so many different trims and lace and tons of fabric and boxes and boxes (and I mean big boxes) of mounted buttons. Also button jars and bags of button. The lady doing the sale was a member of the button society which would explain all the buttons. But she had lots (maybe 4 six foot tables worth) of fabric. I thought I'd share what I picked up all for $22.00.

Most everything was nicely marked and in zip lock bags. Here is some fabric I picked up. Harder to see at upper right is fabric with button designs on them.
 At the upper middle are two bags of snaps then clockwise is some lace then some buttons and back to the fabric.

I also picked up a McCall's pattern from 1978 or 1979 and a quilt book from the 1930s that is still in good shape (no brown acidified pages).
 I also picked up a book for my brother, so it is not shown here (early Christmas gift purchase) and two Whitman Sampler tins with hinged lids. The top one is about 2 inches deep the bottom one is 3 or 4 inches deep.

Then since I had the day off and it was still early in the day I decided to make it a "Mary" day and on the way home stopped at all the yard/garage sale signs that I saw. I would guess I hit about 6 sales. The last one (and closest to home) I found this box marked cross stitch with some fabric and hoops all for just $1.00.
Inside was a treasure trove of things as you see below:

Some of the items I really did not need and since the next day was the Sampler Guild of the Rockies Retreat at which I could sell stuff, I put some of it on sale myself. I sold 4 things from this box for $1.45! A good deal was had by all.

That is the report for the day!!
