Today I stopped in to a Goodwill Store on my way to visit my mother. I have been searching for wool fabric that I can use in my crafting. Well, wool is not easy to find here in Florida and I was out of luck on this stop.
Just as I was about to leave the store empty-handed, I caught a glimpse of an old plastic sewing box sitting high up on a corner shelf. I pulled it down and peeked inside and noticed it had old sewing supplies such as threads, needles, small scissors, and bags of beads and sequins. It was marked $9.99, more than I would typically spend on a Goodwill purchase, but I bought it anyway. When I got home and opened the box, I found it held much more than that. Included was a piece of fabric rolled and tied. It was filled with every size of knitting needle. I also found three vintage circular knitting needles, sewing needles, trims, and many spools of thread. The thread alone would cost me more than $10.00 if I was to purchase it new. I include a lot of my vintage finds when making my primitive dolls. Let's see what I can incorporate into my next doll creation.
