I snuck out of the house before Joe woke up this morning and went to Goodwill and Value Village.
Here's my haul:
Very unusual divided basket: 30 cents at Goodwill
Below the basket, a bunch of really neat fabric Christmas ornaments. I have yet to dissect one to see how to make them, but they appear to be folded fabric pinned to a styrofoam ball. They look like pinecones. The bag was $1.99 for the lot. Each one had a sticker on it for $1.50. I think someone must have tried to sell them at a craft show.
Below the fabric pinecones is the cutest Christmas tree made out of mini spools. I paid $1.99 for the bag that had it in it. The rest of the bag was pretty much garbage.
The zippers, yet-to-be fabric covered buttons and the cotton knitted dishcloth were all in a bag for $2.99. I got the bag because of the fabric covered buttons, I didn't even notice the dishcloth until I got home. It's brand new. What a bonus! (The rest of the bag was garbaged).
Four funky orange egg cups. $1.99
Two mugs, 50 cents each.
And, my heart be still, TWO bags of buttons, $1.99 each. After a very quick scan, there are some neat buttons in the bags.
Around 15 bucks.
I've already used one of the egg cups. How cute is this????
