Thrift store finds today

Went out to Merchant Square to check on the tidiness of my booths and pay rent. Afterwards, I headed to a thrift store not far from Merchant Square. Scored some great finds today! Was very surprised because I thought they would be low on stock since Saturday was their 50% off everything day.

The first great find was 14 rolls of vintage rayon seam binding in lots of colors. The large roll you see is actually black grosgrain ribbon -- a full roll. I love the soft feel of rayon seam binding for bows, ties on tags, ties for books, etc. It comes in lots of colors. But it is very hard to find. Then I also found a card of pretty pink lace edging.In this picture you can see the pretty scarf I found as well as the pin striped small table cloth. Both in perfect condition. The wire basket was found today at Merchant Square while I walked around the mall.

There are other treasures but I will share those with you tomorrow.
