Thrift finds on a calm February weekend.

For the northeast this has been a strangely mild winter. The new word is sprinter. Yesterday we had some snow early but it quickly went away. The weather was not a major factor in getting out to do some thrifting and estate sales.
I found some vintage care bear, strawberry shortcake, herself the elf, Vera, vintage linens, a thread box loaded with new threads, a juice pitcher and glasses, a vintage plastic canister, rainbow brite and a couple of sweatshirts to stay warm at work. My favorite was the heavy tape dispenser for masking tape. I can't wait to restore it and use it or list it on my store. Many of my finds were sewing finds and future fabric to be up cycled. I found something special to send to my friend in CA too. I know she'll read my blog, but it will still be a surprise when she gets it. I find the challenge to find good things fun and what a great reason to get out of the house in February. Thank goodness for thrifting. Good items, good prices and most of all good fun.
