Thrift Store Scores
I have found a thrift store close to my home that gives the Depot in Decorah, Iowa a run for its money.
The Hopkinton shop (not sure of its real name) is run by a little church. It is a lovely hole in the wall with garage sale pricing. Last time I went they had a $1 bag sale and they PACK the bags. I purchased two pairs of dress pants, a dress, and a new pair of shoes. I also found this beauty:
And I say “beauty” with sarcasm. While I like the idea of doily applique, there are oval doiles right over the tummy! Not flattering as a t-shirt. However, because it was a t-shirt it fit into my $1 bag. I am carefully removing the doilies from the shirt to add to my wedding decor collection.
My wedding colors- or lack thereof- are black and ivory. Dyeing the doilies black will allow me to use whatever doilies I find without worrying caring whether they are ivory/white/cream/yellow.
