If only fabrics and sewing are your cup of tea stay right here to see the stuff I found during the month away from snowbound Ohio.
The first find was in an antique/home decor shop in Beaufort, South Carolina.
The polka dot and print were found in a shop in Fernandina Beach, Amelia Island, FL.
Great stuff at $3 a yard.
The shop had a bird but he's hard to see in the photo.
I got it all for $15 and the wide black ribbon is pretty much a complete roll. I was told they used it in the alterations department.
On the trip home we stopped in Asheville, North Carolina to tour the famous Biltmore Estate. Asheville has lots of antique stores and an 82 year old "fine fabric" store that is GOING OUT OF BUSINESS!
Had to get to that, but found most had been picked over for about 3 weeks. I won't name it since not much here and the women working there were VERY reluctant to wait on me. I guess they were too busy going out of business. I did pick these up at 33% off which wasn't that good a deal.
I love the optical illusion on this.
Not so sure about this one.
Bought interesting big buttons to use as bag closures
One of the many antique places we walked through specialized in mid century modern and had bolt end for $15 each. I picked up two
.I like both sides of this one
I think this would make great pillows.
A few new thimbles were also picked up along the way for the collection. I really have to get a count on those things.
Do you ever find fabrics in unexpected places?
