    Hit the thrift shop today and oh my word its a good thing I didn't have very much money to spend cause i would have spent it all. Actually I shouldn't have spent what I did but it was too good to pass up. they had baskets full of crafting and sewing items. Here is some of what I got.

    Bobbins,29 of them, metal and plastic.

    I also got a small plastic right angled ruler for 5 cents. The good Lord has been blessing me this week and I am grateful to him for this.

    I guess it is worth it if you can use it all or pass it along.

    Great find for you.

    Congrats to you! Nice find! You are having good luck this week because you found that lady's camera & returned it. God works in mysterious ways!

    You hit it big, girl! I really should stop in our thrift stores to see what they have. I just never seem to have, or take, the time to get there.

    Carrie, you have the best of luck!! One of these days when my DH retires and we're living in New Concord, we can go thrift shopping together!!! I'm planning on making a short trip up there sometime in Sept.!
