Thirft Haul

Saturday I went to the VNA Sale in Jersey. It is right near the town I went to high school in, they have it twice a year and I have gone almost every year since I was in high school. All the proceeds go to the Visiting Nurse Association and there are sooo many goodies!

I was actually really good this year and made sure to just focus on what I knew I wanted and didn't buy any random stuff that I don't have room for in my apartment or will just end up in a drawer. I also didn't go into the movie tent. There was a huge wait and I was pooped from walking all over already.
I did get some pretty stuff though!

I have a huge love for tiny, round and oval picture frames. I have absolutely no idea why but I just can't pass them up! I also got 4 tiny little handmade doilys and I know exactly what I am going to do with them! There were so many handmade things being sold that it made me a little sad. I got to thinking about all the stuff I have and will be making people over the years, I hope none of it ever ends up at a Rummage Sale =(


I got some sweet Aida fabric which I can always find a use for!


I found these amazing embroidery books, a lot of the stuff in them are for 70's-ish folk art stuff which I looove!! There are so many things in these books I want to make!


I love all things Egyptian and I could not pass up this fabric. It's only a yard and I have no idea what I will do with it but it's so pretty!!


And my favoite score for the day is this book "A Pictoral History of Horror Movies"!! It is in amazing shape, only a few tears on the cover at the bottom of the binding but everything else is perfect. There are so many sweet movie posters in color and then all kinds of behind the scenes black and white photos and what not. I love it!






I also got some cardigans and shirts but they are in the hamper at the moment.
So this is everything I got, I'm totally satisified and can't wait for the October Sale, hehe!!

Have a great day everyone! I am taking my Sales Licensing test at 11:00am and I am sooo nervous!!

Thanks everyone, I'm really happy with everything I got!

Mollie - the marker actually just comes right off with soap & water.

That Egyptian cotton is GORGEOUS! I don't know how much a yard is, but maybe a lovely pillow could be fashioned? :)

It's too pretty to hide away!

Jamie said...

A pillow is a great idea!! I googled it and found out 1 yard = 0.9144 meters.
