Thrift Store

I love thrift stores. One of my favorites is about 25 minutes from my house and I usually try to head that way about once a week. Today I was on a mission. Gabe is performing in a play at a local college and needs a costume. So I headed out this morning.
The only part of Gabe's costume I found was a white button up shirt but look at my other fantastic finds. I looked here and saw what Holly bought and was inspired to show you my finds today. You'll have to excuse the horrible pictures. The lighting in our house at night is horrible because of the placement of all the light fixtures.
I found these two great pillowcases. I love the borders so I will probably use them to make something. Probably a dress or skirt or shirt for MC.
I also found this great piece of fabric which was in a box labeled "Valances" but is not a valance. It is sewn to a red piece of fabric and looks like a topper for a round table cloth.
This cute dress with the fur trim is a Laura Ashley and was only $1. It was a great find and will fit Maci Clare perfect by the time it is cold enough to wear it.
This coat was only $2 and fits Maci Clare. This is the perfect coat to go with dresses. The boots in the background are really cute and were only .50
This shirt was only .50 too. I mostly bought it for the inspiration to make my own with a cute butterfly but MC will definitely wear this one.
I also bought Gabe a pair of jeans and the white shirt. I only paid $10 for all of it.

Love that coat and dress...I'm on the lookout for a cute pair of boots too so if you run across a size 6 or 6 1/2 for really cheap snatch em up 4 me!! You always find such great deals. Our thrift stores leave a lot to be desired here. :(
