Great Finds

Oh, the things you can find in thrift stores!
I found this amazing handmade rose dress at Goodwill the other day. Its very clearly handmade (the edges are not serged, no tag) and is in near-perfect condition. The reason is was given away? There is a small barely perceptible 3mm hole in the bottom. But that is so fixable! Maybe the creator outgrew it? Because I have a cute idea to just sew in a little felt heart.
I am sometimes simply stunned at the treasures people give away. What is your greatest thrift store find?

  2. So pretty!! My best thrift store find was probably a red tea-length semi-formal dress for $4. and a 50 cent pair of snow boots--they were ugly but great for sledding! I don't usually have the best luck finding things in my size, though. Or people around here just keep their stuff as long as possible.
