I *heart* goodwill


I picked up this wool coat today for $5.00. It fits perfectly. I need to sew a button on, (it didn't come with an extra), but I am not too worried.
I should be able to find something......

suitable....

somewhere.....

in my button....

collection.

I also got some new jeans there for the same price.
This is why I love Goodwill today. Wouldn't you?

SCORE!! Goodwill rocks! That is one impressive button stash my dear! I don't think you need to worry about the missing one :)

Wow, and I thought I had a bunch of buttons! I'm SURE you'll find one for the coat.

okay, i am in love with your button collection!! i just skimmed your blog, but i'm assuming from the name you do bit of quilting. I am just trying my first one, quilt that is, and i am wondering how difficult it is to make your own bias. any suggestions?

Goodwill can be fun...but I think that sometimes Savers can be just as good. Maybe we can do some thrifting when you get to MN.
