I'd checked it out a few weeks before Mary's visit -- and it looked like a fun place to shop.
The five of us were doing fine...I already had a few treasures in my cart (wait until you see the gigantic metal butterfly necklace I got for $3.)...when we stumbled into the booth with ALL THE VINTAGE LINENS...
There were a dozen SETS of embroidered Days-of-the-week dishtowels ($21 for a complete set)...and a basket full of pillowcase sets that had been laundered, ironed and folded ($4 a set).
THEN WE FOUND THE RACK OF QUILT TOPS...
|I don't know most quilt patterns, so I'm not gonna try...|
|But looking at the pictures, I CAN'T BELIEVE I DIDN'T BUY THEM ALL...|
|I did buy this one. What looks like a pale blue is actually a small blue and white stripe...and the pink is a red and white stripe...IT'S TERRIFIC, ISN'T IT??|
|But I think this was the star of the day. All different quilt patterns sewn together.|
|I think it was the original version of the Splendid Sampler!!|
|Mary bought this one and took it home!!|
|This is a double wedding right -- right?|
|And a Grandmother's Garden?|
|All those pesky little hexies...|
|One of the few photos we got of all five of us.|
|ANOTHER double wedding ring!!|
|Really -- there were SO MANY QUILT TOPS!!|
And -- are you ready for this? The price for the quilt tops? $15 each.
Mary bought one, and I bought one.
Now that I'm looking at the pictures -- I'M GOING BACK!!
