Hubby and I love to go to estate sales when we get the opportunity. You never know what treasures can be found.
I have found vintage fabric, garden tools, pyrex bowls, which I happen to collect and Mexican pottery, (I also collect these). Hubby usually looks for tools that he can use.
There is a feeling of sadness for me when we go to estate sales; I always think about the person or persons that owned the items on sale. I do make it a point to promise myself that I will try and take care of any item I buy.♥
Not long ago I found a scarf, which looked brand new, for $1.oo. I quickly grabbed it knowing that I could use it some way or another.
Well, as you can see, I turned it into a poncho-like top to be worn over a camisole or nice tee top.
To start the process, I folded the scarf in half and then cut a hole at the top for my head to go through.
I then hand stitched a narrow hem around the opening for a finished look.
For the $1.oo that I paid, I’m thinking that I made a pretty good deal.♥♥♥♥
