At garage sale #1 today, I scored two different fabric "remnants" for 25 cents each, a small marble mortar & pestle for 50 cents, and a quiche plate and nice flour sifter for 10 cents each. Grand total = $1.20. I only had $1.25 so I let her keep the change.
Moving on to garage sale #2. This one advertised thread, which I thought was strange, until I arrived and saw a whole table filled with spool after spool of thread! The owner had been a seamstress and had quite the collection she was getting rid of. I didn't really want to hoard that much thread, not knowing what colors I'd use, so I grabbed several white spools and a teal that would hopefully match a t-shirt I'd been meaning to redesign. I also got a bobbin of elastic thread and a wooden spool holder, both of which I'd been contemplating purchasing for awhile now. I offered $5 for the lot, which would have been around $10, and the lady accepted. Yay for me!

Last stop was the thrift store. I found a blue Loft t-shirt that was on sale for $2.50, a red pintucked and ruffled shirt from the Gap for $5, and a pair of Talbots chinos (the updated, modern, stylish version!) new with original price tag of $69.95, for a mere $7.

Life is good :D
