thrifty finds

We have a few thrift shops in town that I frequent. I'll usually get around to checking one of them out each week and I usually find some great stuff. On today's trip I found some great vintage fabrics and the most amazing cream and pink chevron knitted blanket. 

The grey/green/yellow striped fabric on the left is a knit. The fabric on the right is your standard cotton and in the same amazing green/yellow colors. I'm not sure what i'll use them for yet, but they are both great additions to my fabric stash. 

Seriously, whoever knitted this blanket is amazing. And whoever decided to get rid of it, a big THANK YOU to you too. It's in great condition, no holes, runs, or fraying. It's really quite large (queen size maybe?) and is soft and heavy... oh and I only paid $2.99 for it. Got to LOVE that!! It's hanging over Elle's crib in the pictures below, and since her room is the only one in the house that has pink in it, it may just stay in her room...we'll see. 

Do you frequent your local thrift stores? Any amazing finds? Please share!
