I'll Share Today

I am not so lucky as to find any thrift shops around were I live, so I usually EBay it. When I lived in Wichita, Kansas they had some wonderful thrift shops and my Grandma was the one who got me going to them. Her friends would go and take her and she would get basically clothes for herself and Grandpa. I go for the fun things though, but since I'm here in small town Nowheresville, USA I will share with you what I've been getting on EBay lately.

I am planning on making a valance for my bedroom out of vintage hankies. I have started a collection (here are some of them) and I actually just found a really good deal on EBay this morning bought 22 more hankies. I can't wait to get them. I should have enough after I get those to make my valance.

Irish Linen Hankies with Crochet and I think Tatted Edges

Check out how fine the crochet or tatting is

I also got these really cool Cocktail Napkins on EBay. They are black and gold and have birds and bird cages on them. The box is so pretty with its pink and black. The cocktail napkins kind of remind me of some Michael Miller fabric.

I hope you enjoy seeing some of my new treasures.

Those are some great finds. I love crocheted edgings. If you don't have a resale store, do you yardsale?
