i took some things to drop off at a thrift store yesterday (partially as an excuse to go shop there, i'll admit - haven't gone in a while). this particular store is very clean and organized, but i've yet to find anything really good. and they barely have any linens or fabric - that's been disappointing.
but this time i found a few cool things - including a couple nice pieces of fabric and some vintage trims. also i found this bag of button-making supplies from a kids' button-maker. the bag was full and the inner bags were unopened and the directions were there and everything. but i couldn't find the actually maker. i carried the bag around with me and looked everywhere - only to put the bag back. but then i checked in one last place - and there it was! so (after running back for the first bag) for $3.50 i got all of this:
it's hard to tell, but the bag of supplies is really full. princess and i immediately made some when we got home and had such fun.
