"Vintage Monday's" ... showing you some of my favorite vintage things that I have in my collections....I posted about crochet hot pads.
If you didn't see them...you can read about them here.
I've recently added more to my collection thanks to a fabulous find at one of my favorite thrift shops.
I came across four bags that looked like they were full of vintage crocheted doilies and hotpads.
They were marked at 1.99 each...which is a fantastic deal already but as luck would have it...it was 50% off all yellow tags day, making them 1.00 for each bag!
I couldn't wait to get them home to see everything that was in there...
Here are some of my favorites...
I think that they probably came from the same kitchen...being all together like that....and whoever made them must have loved red and white just like me because most of them are those colors.
I imagine that she lovingly crocheted each potholder in the evenings after the kids were asleep and she finally had some time to herself for handwork and listening to her favorite programs....or maybe she took them along in her sewing bag to a Ladies Aid meeting to keep her hands busy?
What do you think?
It's when I find things such as this that keeps me out going through bins at my local thrift shops....I don't find treasures every time I go...but the times that I do make it totally worthwhile!
How about you?...do you like thrifting?
What kinds of vintage finds make your heart skip a beat?
