friday's finds

sorry for the delay, i've been creating like mad all day in my sweatshop (aka my studio) bec. i woke up in a bit of a panic when i realized i had FOUR sets of atcs to MAKE for a local swap i'm in & they are due after christmas!!!!!!!!!!!! believe me, i've been SWEATING all day today! anyway, here are my finds for this week's friday's finds...this past week, i went to my fave local haunt, castaways thrift shop, & found some lovely vintage holiday decor & patterns for half off & believe me, they were dirt cheap (ex. 25 cents marked down to 12 cents!!!!)...all in all, i spent a grand total there: 7 bucks! & i found a lot of neato stuff...which i can use for future projects... i found this vintage stocking (second row, reads "season's greetings on the red side & has santa on his sleigh on green side) for a mere 35 cents!!!!!! & when i went to this new antique place in mad city (odana antiques) i saw similar ones that were ten dollars each!!!!!!!!!!!!!! wow, hard to swallow after i had paid 35 cents for mine from castaways! i did, though, enjoy the lovely holiday displays at odana antiques...i found these vintage japanese pipe cleaner ornies (third row on left in above photo collage), teeny tiny red ric rac & some really cute vintage kiddie photos...they weren't too bad on the ol' pocketbook... well, that's the cool loot i found for this week's 'bout you? pls. do share & post a comment with your link here or of course, in flickr.
