Wow, score!

Went to several thrift shops today and restocked my stash... found a plethora of great sweaters. Even managed to find a couple of zipper fronts that will be the basis for my next couple of coats, the most incredible deep aqua blue wool, and a fantastic marled orange brown with a beautiful weave... so I will be busy sewing away the next few weeks.

I also found two little treasures for myself. A great wool plaid shirt jacket that looks to be from the forties and will be so wonderful this fall especially with my wide retro pants, and a great thermal Eddie Bauer shirt - lime green that is the best turtleneck I have ever found. I am still kicking myself for not buying the almost new line green Swedish clogs a couple of weeks ago!

Can't wait to hit the thrift stores on the way up and back when I take my son to school, and also in Milwaukee area.

It is amazing the treasures to be found at Goodwill et al. Happy hunting to all you fellow thrift hunters.
