Zip Ahoy, Zip Ahoy!

lyric_fun

That’s the look I get after a sweet thrift store impromptu shopping spree.  Check out these zippers!!!  I believe some of them to be vintage.  For instance, I had not heard of the brand “Star”; have you?

Vintage_Zippers

Count ’em – 19 of them!  These will come in handy for the 40s and 50s vintage style dresses I will be sewing.  After such a great find the other half of the fun is enumerating the haul.

  • 6 white metal zippers from 18-20 inches
  • 3 red metal zippers, 18-20″
  • 1 Kelly green, 18″
  • 2 blue (ciel and medium blue), 18″
  • 2 navy, 20″
  • 3 pink, 7″, and 18″ (lt. pink and hot pink)
  • 1 pumpkin, 20″
  • 1 walnut, 18″

But wait, there’s more:

Rick Rack_Bias

  • 3 packages of red rick rack.  Two of the packages are vintage Boiltex jumbo rick rack and the other is small.
  • 1 package of 1/2″ rayon seam binding in Jungle Green.
  • White bias binding
  • 2 unopened packages of Wrights bias tape in flame
  • 1 new package of wide old rose bias tape @ 4 yards
  • 1 new package of flame, wide bias tape @ 4 yards
  • 1 vintage package of white jumbo rick rack (polyester) from Woolco [originally .59]

But wait, there’s more!

corduroy_quilt_cotton

  • Enough wine coloured corduroy to make a skirt
  • Red/white quilting cotton
  • Strawberry Shortcake quilting squares to make a quilt for my grammy

But wait, there’s still more!

Last but certainly not least . . . check THIS out:

Mink_Trimmed_Hat

I am going to ask my girl, Miss Susie about this find.  I am sure she can share valuable information about it.  The plan is to replace the netting and if the stars align perhaps I can wear it to the Memorial Celebration in April.

Mink Hat Top

Guess what today’s goodies cost question mark

$2 and some change!

Don’t you just love thrift store stash building?

Cheers,

    1. We’ve got to go “junking”, I. You never know what you might find. 🙂 I tell you what, if the “friends” there are anything like the ones here they know where the nooks and crannies are for such things. When I find out I’ll surely pass it on to you. Giggles. Can’t wait to see you, girl. I think about it a lot. 🙂

    1. Hey there, Kacy:

      Sometimes it is worth a road trip, if-you-will. I’ll bet there is SOMETHING within, say 30 miles of you! Seek, baby, seek and ye shall find, LOL.

    1. Hi OddlyEnded,

      Really??? That’s all . . . . see that’s why I can not participate on The Price Is Right. I always say would “I” would pay and it’s always lower, bwwahhh haaa. I would have sworn that hat is worth more than $5 bucks. Show you how much I know.

      Cheers,
