We haven’t been thrifting to much this year at all. We’re cutting back on frivolous spending, but occasionally we treat ourselves.
I got this bag of 3 skeins for $3. The Patons Metallic goes for $9 right now in Michaels. Not my usual colour, but I’ve wanted to try this yarn to see how it works up. For $1 a skein I can’t go wrong. Grey is a staple in my yarn colour choices, and denim blue is nice.
Polyester thread….. I’m not sure what this is supposed to be used for. Sewing windbreakers? It’s strong, but not overly. And the colours are super bright. I figured for $2 I could find a use. Perhaps jewelry? Sewing rugs?
Have you been thrifting lately? Any treasures to share? I’m hoping that sales pick up in my shop and I can go garage sale picking this year. 🙂
