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.

    Hey, that was going to be my question! Sounds like an intriguing idea. I hope you keep working on it.
