I only went to one thrift store this week and it is my favorite.
Even though it is a very small store there is a lot of stock
turnover and I almost always find something good.
The prices are great! Just a few dollars can buy so much.
Also it doesn't hurt that it is only 5 minutes from my home.
This week it was books:
The timing of "Serger Gifts and Crafts" was perfect as I have
a new serger I haven't tried yet....... must get to that.
In the Serger book there are so many ideas with illustrations
and clear instructions. I love to learn from books!

The small quilting book has lots of great tips and there are illustrations for all of them:
I thought this little snowman family was kind of cute in the
1985 "Women's Circle Crochet" Christmas Annual:
|Crochet Snowman Family|
If I do this I will probably update the accessory colors a bit.
The "Easy Bazaar Crafts Book" had patterns for some cute little dolls and furniture:
Some of the furniture was made with felt which I love to work with.
To finish it off I was happy to find a classic by Anne Bronte that I haven't read. I did see the movie
and liked it so I am sure I will like the book even more. I usually do with the classics.
