I heart the thrift store!

Love, love, love thrift stores in case you don't know that about me. Today I had a few minutes and happened to be in the neighborhood of one of my favs. I pop in and I feel like I hit the vintage craft book mother load. I love books and vintage craft books are so cool because many times the explanations they provide for a technique is so much more complete. Anyway I was super excited when I spotted a bunch of books by Barbara G. Walker. If you don't know knitting, you wouldn't know this, but she is one of the Goddesses of the knitting world and wrote many books that are still very much in demand today and fetch a nice little sum on ebay (if you were to go that route). Anyways, take a peek at my haul! Woohoo, super score...all for $7. Can't beat that with a stick!

Oh and excuse the sideways pix. I couldn't get photobucket to load to edit it.

My very favorite section of our thrift store is vintage craft books! Sometimes nothing, but sometimes really, really great stuff. Awesome finds!

Oh I absolutely love the thrift store too! I wish my camera wasn't so funky so I could take pictures of my latest finds there too (2 stone loaf pans!).

That was a GREAT score. Barbara Walker? For real? Wow, wow, wow!! For $7. Unbelievable. Shoot, I'm almost as excited for you as you're as excited for yourself! Yay!
