Flea market finds

Golly gee wilickers, where did the week go? I have been swamped with homework and am trying to finish up one class before the next starts, these classes are accelerated and often overlap each other. So I have a final and four other papers to finish before Tuesday. This post will be brief. Focus pocus.

Troy and I ventured out yesterday for the first time alone in a loooooooooooong time and found ourselves at the once a year flea market. (is it me or does the word long in that all stretched out state look like a weaner dog?)

What is this oh so pretty fabric you ask?


These are full size, intact, blemish free- feed sacs that I found at the flea market!! I was so excited I cannot even begin to tell you!! I have only seen them cut and did a little dance upon discovering these little gems. I have know idea how much these usually are, but I paid three dollars a piece for them. I would have bought more but my budget is a bit restricted...ahem. No matter I did get these two and love them. The little metal letter holder was a quarter. Kinda a steal, I know.


Just one more picture!

It's one of my thrifting dreams to find some feed sacks! What treasures, and they're so pretty!

Good luck with your school stuff. Hang in there!

Lucky you! I can't believe you found those pretties at the flea market. Can't wait to see what you make with them.

Wow, nice finds! I think the average price for a full sack around here is about $10.

So lucky! I don't know how much they're worth either but three dollars seems like a deal to me! Great find!

Oh gosh how lovely. I've been watching feedsacks on e-bay for months and usually weenie little pieces just go up and up and up. Beyond my budget. Lucky you. Mary

One of those great finds that I always hope for when at the flea market. Sadly, I don't think I've ever seen any feedsacks around here. The fabric is great!

Girl, you have way too much energy. Kids, school, crafts, etc., etc. And you are funny, too! Haha. I want to hate you but you know I can't. You make me laugh too much.

Love your finds. I think you got those feedsacks for a steal!

Cheers! LA
