My favorite little thrift store has affectionately become known as "MY thrift store". Why do we do that? Why do we become so attached to our little local thrift stores... so possessive. Don't get me wrong, I tell everyone about my thrift store. I want them to check it out... but... I want them to go with ME. It's important that I show them around... you know, point out areas they might miss... tidbits that only I would know. Some people are just clueless in the art of thrifting. So I take them under my wing and show them the ropes. It's just a little something I do to spread the wealth... in thrifting! Now there's an oxymoron! But I kinda do make money thrifting!! Think about it...
Anyway, the last couple times I've gone to my thrift store I have found quilts. The two patchworks are lap quilts ($2.00 each) and the flannel one is a Christmas baby quilt (only 99 cents!). Notice that when they tied the quilt, they hid every single knot! Simply exquisite! And someday I'm thinking a little grandbaby will be wrapped in such softness!
