Thrift Score! Vintage Clothing and Purses

Well I have a heap of goodies laying around the house, just waiting for me to take some pix to post - it has been so dang hot and humid here I have not been getting much done, (except....wellllll... I can always muster up the strength to go thrifting and yard saling!) Today the heat let up - finally - and I hit one of my favorite thrift stores and they had a bag sale!!!! Yahoooooo!!! All you could stuff in a bag for $1.00! That's MY kind of sale. Hubby was with me and he managed to fill up a bag quicker than I did (I have taught him well...LOL).

I got loads of craft and sewing books, yarn, ribbon, lace and anything related to crafting I could get my hot little hands on. Actually, I have amassed so much sewing and crafting stuff, that not all of it I will be using.... so....... in the "not so far off" future, I have decided I will start having some giveaways! I just can't pass up all this great stuff when I know so many others can put it to good use. Maybe in a month or two, I'll keep gathering up goodies as I find them, and will let you know later on when I get the packages organized and sorted. Now on to some of the goodies from this week:

This week I found a yard sale that had oodles of fun stuff, and I couldn't resist picking up these great old dresses! These 2 below are vintage Hawaiian dresses, (I forgot who the maker was), but they were from Hawaii :) Don't you just love the fabrics they are made of? Makes me want to stir up a pitcher of Mai Tai's just looking at them - want to join me? *giggle*


Then I found a group of old woven purses, which also had to come home with me :)


I think this one with the black background is my favorite.


This one has a cluster of little shells woven into it!
