So in my last post, I shared my thread stash as part of a little blog hop. One of the questions was how to build a stash and I casually answered to check thrift stores, because you never know what you find. Well my friends, I had to share what I found a thrift store yesterday! 65 skeins of hand-dyed floss for a quarter each!!! I couldn't believe it! It seems (sadly) that a needlework shop went out of business and donated things that were left over. So here's what I got!
These are from Stranded by the Sea, which I'm not familiar with, but they are beautiful hand-dyed colors and all have sea-inspired names.
These are a few random ones I got, a few silks and what I think is linen, but it's not labeled.
A few Crescent Colours
Then, the jackpot...43 skeins of Weeks Dye Works! I seriously about flipped out in the store. I grabbed every skein that was on the rack. I couldn't believe I was going to get these for a quarter each.
Such beautiful colors. Now I've got to find a way to store all these new goodies!
So be sure to peek in a thrift store every now and then, because seriously, you NEVER know what you will find!
