Today's entry is short and sweet.
Will and I went to a local store called Margie Pearl's this afternoon. It's a fabric/notions store where I love to shop. Will is entertained by sifting through the huge buckets and old washtub filled with buttons. He looks for "diamonds" which happen to be those cheap, cheesy fake jewels.
While Will is preoccupied looking for treasures (including true treasures of wood buttons for me), I get to take my time looking through all the trims. These are trims that are not purchased new from a supplier. They are old crocheted trims, eyelet trims, sequined trims, lace, velvet ribbons, satin ribbons, any kind of trim you can imagine. And since they were picked up here and there at sales instead of purchased new, they are cheap, in addition to most of them being unique.
Today I picked up 39 yards of trims for $18. The most expensive trim I got was $2.50 a yard, the cheapest was $.05 a yard.
While I was standing, waiting for my trims to be cut, I noticed there was a bolt of some polk-a-dot fabric beckoning me. It's wanting to be made into something cute and fun. So I'll be heading back to Margie Pearl's soon. Very, very soon.
