More goodies from my trip to Oregon! First stop the Knittin' Kitten, a fabulous thrift store dedicated solely to fabric and craft items. I picked up some wool plaid remnants to add to the quilt I've been working on. The total for these was under $10.
Then I picked it up and turned it around. So much better! He just has an unfinished tail. For $3 he got to come home and will get finished so he can chill with my other macrame owls.
I found one of these "Made In Belgium" apothecary jars for $1.50 at the Milwaukie Value Village. Then I found the other two at the Wilsonville Goodwill a few hours later. They were marked $2.99 each, but the clerk rang them up for me as a set. Mom had two or three of these in clear amber when I was a kid.
I found this Interesting Fire King relish dish at a Vancouver Goodwill for $4. At the time I felt like that was slightly overpriced for a Goodwill, but I liked it so much I decided to buy it. Good thing, I saw one at an antique mall later for $12 each.
I found this little guy at the Milwaukie Goodwill for $3. He was just too cute, this green Lucky Cat.
He get's to live with Pink Kitty. I found her at a Goodwill in CT. She's so fancy with her spaghetti trim and gold bow tie. They were MFEO. Made for each other.
I snagged a white Fiesta mug for $1. This is what bugs me about Goodwill pricing. $4 for the FireKing Dish and only $1 for a piece of Fiestaware? Whatevs.
I picked up these vintage swizzle sticks at The Old Town Antique Market in Vancouver, WA for $4. I remember having a bunch of these around when I was a little kid. That is until I decided to chew on them. No idea why other than I have a touch of OCD that likes to manifest itself in odd ways. I can safely say I have no desire to gnaw on these. I especially love the palm tree from the Hawaiian Hilton.
As promised. I have more pictures of the quilt. Henceforth known as the White Nine Patch. Though as you can see the nine patch blocks contain even smaller nine patch blocks of the feed sack prints. The more I look at it, the more intense it gets.
Because even though there are large white blocks in between the nine patch blocks, those "plain" blocks have an amazing amount of intricate quilting. All. By. Hand.
More to come next week. I hit a couple estate sales in Lake Oswego/Tigard and got quite a bit of kitschy Christmas stuff. Plus there is still another quilt from the by-the-pound Goodwill. All I'm going to say is: 60's bed spreads. All of this is still in transit via the Post Office, but should be here sometime this week. Once again I'm linking up to Apron Thrift Girl's Thrift Share Monday.
