$3 RUMMAGE SALE


Stopped by a church rummage sale on Saturday before work and I spent $3.


 $1 vintage hat 

 75 cent vase, it's about 5" tall and has no markings.

 25 cent Mar-Crest sugar bowl. The basic black slip was $1. Yeah, to second hand.

Spent a great deal of Saturday afternoon working on this

 Figuring out how to sewing the trim onto stretchy fabric. I used pinkish thread and sewed through the flowers, then switched to green and sewed all the leaves, one at a time. The was after I cut all the extra net away. The finished costume will be awesome.

  1. Nice finds, especially the sweet hat.
    Your sewing sounds time-consuming and painstaking! Worth it for the end result though. xxx

  3. Money well spent definitely! I haven't had a time for proper rummage sale (or thrifting in general) for ages. I can't wait to see what that dress looks like when it's finished.
