So, I was super excited to have had a marvelous shopping experience. Actually, it wasn't marvelous, but two great finds made it up. First of all, I DIDN'T get this gorgeous vintage pillowcase that would have been an adorable summer dress for Katherine. Sigh. All I could think was that all of the germs of Pennsylvania were on those sheets. Though this might be true, that is what washing machines are for: ten cycles (just kidding).
The maternity clothes was also a bomb out. I can usually find at least one really good thing, but it was cleaned out for my size. Of course there were some insanely hideous looking alternatives which made me wonder why they were ever made in the first place- do people think this looks good? I almost took pictures.
At any rate, when I came to the housewares section, I was pleasantly surprised.
This lovely hand painting was about two dollars.
Next I found bags of thread for about three dollars each- these bags were large and STUFFED with thread. Here lies the third problem of the day: I only bought one bag. Still, that one bag was pretty decent. When I got I found these cool, ancient wooden spools:
So that was that! I really should go back for that pillowcase and thread...
