thrifty


It's a little blurry, because it's already almost dark right now, but I wanted to squeal a bit to people I know will understand about these finds: almost 100 (some I haven't unpackaged) vintage Czech glass buttons, unused replacement belts for my Kenmore, and about 40 skeins of unused vintage embroidery floss. Village des Valeurs forever.

Some of the buttons will be going onto handprinted cards and selling in the sewing section of the shop. Some will be going on pouches. Some will be going on a Super Top-Secret Project that I am working on. (!!!)

Off to class, now. Cheers!

Am I reading write (fine print) that you bought those beautiful buttons at Value Village? I was just there yesterday (I go every other week while the kids are at school) and have yet to find anything that wonderful. Lucky you! The colors are beautiful, I especially like the ones in the lower right hand corner, they look clear with color inside. Wow!

Hey, this is Megan (milkypop). I actually work at Value Village in Richfield, and I'm in charge of the craft department. If there is anything you are looking for, let me know and I'll save it for you!

I feel soooo lucky!

Megan, what a generous offer. WOW, I am seriously taken aback. I would always love any old sewing supplies--thread, notions, buttons. WOW, WOW, WOW!!!!! I will email you, too.

Cheers, all!
