February 1- Helping Hands $2.08
I’ve heard/read others that say; undergarments are where they draw the line when it comes to second hand clothes. I’m satisfied that once I’ve washed any garment it is ready for me to wear. I have purchased a swim suit, this is my second bra, I pick up socks regularly, I have also purchased undies but they were new with tags. (if I needed underwear I would purchase lightly worn second hand as well)
I already have a good supply of jelly jars but these 4oz. ones are my favorite for gift giving and they were only 17 cents each.
February 3- Deseret Industries $3.01
Come summer I’ll be well stocked with both jars and canning lids. And while I’m enjoying the summer nights on my back porch I won’t be bothered by mosquitos because I’ll have a thrifted citronella candle to ward them off. Actually it takes several citronella candles burning around me to keep the bugs at bay.
Goodwill $1.31 shopping bag because this one is coming apart and needs replacing.
February 5-St.Vincent de Paul $3.47
I just can’t resist that 50 cent bin.
When the bakery moved into our new location the owners instituted a dress code that includes a hat. I used fabric I already had and these 19 cent patterns to make these.
I used the pattern I got at DI and two tee shirts from St. Vinnie’s 50 cent bin to make thisIts for a real baby not a doll but I don’t have a baby to model it.
The gingham capris with the embroidered border became these overalls
February 15-St. Vincent de Paul $4.73
The cast iron stove is for the Oregon Trail.
You’ve probably noticed I’m a sucker for doll patterns.
I just broke a glass and these were only 40 cents so I bought a replacement and I’ll be prepared the next time one breaks.
I will donate the water bottles to my favorite street ministry.
The pins and lace will be added to my sewing supplies.
I bought more in February but this post is getting pretty long so come back tomorrow to see my other FINDS.
