Today's Bargain Fabrics

I just got home from a quick trip to my favorite place...THE THRIFT STORE!!!!

I would say a good 90% of my stash is reclaimed fabric.  I can not resist a great deal on beautiful fabric.

One man/woman's discards is this sewers treasure!

But seriously, I love bargain shopping for fabric, I could care less how old or "out of season" it is, if I like it, I like it.

Fabric to me is much like a blank canvas to a painter, or the lump of clay to the sculptor, I look at a piece of fabric and see it's potential, I think about what the original owner may have intended for it, it's just a pure delight for me to purchase fabric; new or reclaimed, but reclaimed is much more fun (not to mention affordable)!

So here is what I found today:

Can you say SUMMER DRESS!!!! 3.25 yards, $1.99

Tote Bag Anyone?  Cyrus Clark Teflon 1.75 yards, $1.49

Cute little nautical themed purse, oh this could get too fun with some red ribbon and vintage anchor buttons!!! 3 yards, $1.99
