Thrifty Thursday

We haven’t been thrifting to much this year at all.  We’re cutting back on frivolous spending, but occasionally we treat ourselves.

Sparkle & Doom DesignsI 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.

Sparkle & Doom DesignsPolyester 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. 🙂
