I was just about to walk out of the thrift store in Bellows Falls empty handed, when the woman working there told me all the clothes on the rack in the back of the store were a quarter. A few minutes later, I left with a bag full of clothes, a couple for me but most for potholders.
When I thought the lime green cotton pants with the beads and embroidery ( I have a nice collection of machine embroidered fabric that I’ll someday do something with) were $4 I passed them up (they actually would have been a good buy for $4, I’ll probably get 6 potholders out of them) but for a quarter…..It’s funny how when I go into a thrift store, $4 suddenly seems like alot of money for a pair of pants. Where do these ideas come from and why I hold onto them, even though I know they don’t make any sense?
Anyway, I made 10 Goddess potholders today (they’re not actually finished, but the stitching is done) for the Anointing the Goddess show. The blue and orange thread on the lime green (pants) looks like candy to me. If this or any of the other potholders I make don’t sell at the show, they’ll be available on my website after June 24th.
There’s still time to win a free pack of Jon’s Bartleby Notecards. I’ll be posting the winner at 9am tomorrow.
