Thrift store finds.

A couple of visits to the thrift shops since my sister was here on holiday. She picked up  a couple of nice cruets and some bone handled carving sets.....I do hope she did not put them in her hand luggage.

  She twisted my arm and made me buy this hand knitted, very seasonal, Canadian, 80s cardigan.....note the maple leaf buttons. It will give my market stall an autumn look I hope.

 A couple of lengths of fine quality heavy cotton.

 Some more Canadian blankets that I need like a hole in the head, but, Hey,  they are a pair!

 How about them apples.....a red and white 'Lone Star" quilt. Possibly from the 30s in almost perfect nick. ( sorry about the dappled sunlight, the weather has been perfect)

And, after a hiatus of several months, a Liberty scarf for my collection. 


  1. What wonderful finds, I especially love the cardigan - such dear buttons :o)

    1. I don't usually buy 80s or later, but my sister made me do it...

  2. Looks like you made some fine scores in your latest thrifting expeditions!

  3. Great finds! You'll have to tell me the best places to go on my next visit to Toronto!

  4. I can't believe you found that quilt in a thrift store.
