    Second hand shop treasures

    I went into the local second hand shop today and it was red tag day. Anything with a red tag was 50% off. I found the 2-3 yard pieces each of red and blue canvas material, 2 books----our best seasonal quilts Fons and Porter and carol doak's easy reversible vests, a bag with bindings, ribbon, handbag clasp, mini plant pot, and two pair of jeans....all for $7.50. Think I will make several Morsbags I read about here today.

    Don't you feel wonderful when you get a great bargain? I love Thrift stores. My Mom, Aunts and I always hit our local thrift store on 50% off day. The bargains we find are incredible. So much of my stash has come from thrift stores.
    Thanks for sharing.
    Next to God we are indebted to women, first for life itself, and then for making it worth having.

    Great!! I can only hope that shoppers at my local charity shop are just as pleased with things I've donated over the years. It's nice to know things got a new home.

    no really local 'good' thrift shops around me, my fave moved about an hour away several years ago so I don't get to go anymore ... these posts really make me miss having a great thrift store close by. You did great!

    We have thrift shops but they aren't as thrifty as you would think. I get better deals at estate sales. I picked up a couple quilting books (Alex Anderson) had patterns and templates, Lapquilting with Georgia Bonesteel and couple others. I paid I think about $1.50-2.00 a book. All have templates and couple patterns and charts. Have not been able to find anything like these in thrift stores yet.
