Salvation Army Haul Video

Just wanted to share my latest haul from Salvation Army. Yes, it does include sewing related stuff.

  5. The lining looks like Bemberg rayon. You can do a burn test to see if it's rayon. If it is, then you got a very good deal because Bemberg easily retails from $6 - $10 per yard.

  7. You got some good stuff. I have more success with patterns than fabric at thrift stores. Love the bold print and the patterned (maroon and white looking) fabric! Nice haul!

  8. Great finds, I love thrift stores, but there only one near me (SA) and there are several Goodwills within a ten mile radius that I frequent but hardly any fabric.

  9. That's a good SA with all that fabric! The SA here just opened a new shop, you have inspired me to check it out soon!

  10. "I watch Hoarders, and that keeps me from bringing all those sewing machines home." HAHAHAHA! I have to physically restrain my husband from buying every sewing machine we see. We've found a couple of keepers, but he is like a little puppy, finding sewing things he thinks I'll like and dragging me over to look at them. Because some of the items have been real treasures, I try to encourage him as much as possible, but my new thrifting mantra is "No more sewing machines."

  11. Great video. I really enjoyed seeing your haul. I never, ever see fabric at a thrift store. Good for you!
