This Week’s Thrifting Finds – Thrifted Fabric & Linens

Vintage Tablecloth Close-upNot much to report this week on the thrifting front!  I have been hunkered down in my house for most of the week, working on my novel and posting for you lovely readers, so I haven’t had much time to scrounge.  However, I did have time to take a quick peek into the thrift stores on Monday, and I found the following:

Vintage FabricI found a few yards of this great vintage cotton fabric. It is interesting because has a lot of different vertical patterns that alternate. This is just a sample of a few of them. This is another great candidate for pillows.

Vintage TableclothI also found a great rectangular tablecloth. I love the daisy pattern, and it is going to look great on the three season porch in the summer.

And I got both for under $2!

    Oh my gosh, you are woking on a novel. How cool. What is it about, if I may ask?

    It is cooler than it sounds…so far it hasn’t been anything but a colossal failure. But it may shape up someday. 🙂

    It is a retelling of a fairytale, East of the Sun and West of the Moon. It is basically the Norwegian version of Beauty and the Beast.
