Thrifting Finds

I make the circuit around my town's thrift stores on a regular basis always on the hunt for that "score". Sometimes I buy something just to put in my studio. I found this old record in a bin the other day. It's smaller than the old large record, only 10 inches. I loved the colors and the vintage look. So now it sits on my shelf as a pretty decoration.
I scored big time finding these bolts of trim and ribbon.  It would take me a lifetime to go through these, but at $1.00 a piece, I couldn't resist.  I've already tea-stained a handful of it to use with some of my tags in my paper store on etsy. 
This also jumped in my cart on the way to checkout. It's some sort of sheer with beautiful pastel embroidery, rhinestones, and trim.  I'm not sure what it was for. It looks like it might be a wrap, but I was going to use it as a tablecloth, or curtain, or.....stick it in my shop therobinandsparrow.etsy.com and sell it and let someone else decide what to do with it!
Have a wonderful day, my peeps!
