I just popped out to a garage sale around the corner, and this is what I found:
A red and white damask tablecloth for $2- just what I have been wanting
An old glass jar with a lid (50c)- maybe for buttons?
A handful of buttons (30c), not vintage but in colours I don't have many of.
Before you get too jealous, when I got home I found holes in the tablecloth. (Let the buyer beware) But I still probably would have bought it. I guess I have some darning to do ... or maybe some repurposing!
