Latest Value Village Finds

This afternoon my sister D and I took a trip to Value Village.

Here is what I scored:


This will become my sewing chair $14.99 - I have
a perfect piece of tapestry fabric to recover the seat.These are leather Bandolino's - I found these similar ones online for $70
- these are barely worn and I paid $17.99

This is a valance but I liked the fabric so will unstitch it
and use it in quilts or something - $0.99

Brand new baby outfit and Baby Gap shoes, both with tags for
when my niece's daughter is born -$4.99 for all

Brand new baby slippers for nephew's baby on the way - $0.99

Queen size vintage sheet - I love the retro pattern - $3.99
I am thinking lounging pants - I'll leave the trim at the bottom.

2 new skull bandanas - $1 each
I have a project in mind for these - will post about it soon.

Harry Potter twin size sheet set - looks brand new - for J
$6.99 for the set

Oh, I also bought myself a pair of shorts, a tank top and a summer blouse.

I love Value village :D

UPDATE: I have finished quilting the baby quilt and have sewn the binding on the front, now all I have to do is hand stitch the binding to the back. Hope to be finished tomorrow and will post pics then.

Great finds Kim. Haven't been doing too much Frenchy shopping lately, I have to get over there and find neat stuff like yours.

great values! I don't think I could wear those shoes though. I stay in flats most of the time cause of knee problems

I never ever go into Value Village, I should check it out to get some material for sewing.

Great deals.

Thanks!

Gill if you check out my other thrift store posts, you will see I get a great deal of new fabric from Value Village all the time. I also like to get sheets to back quilts.

I love shopping at thrift stores! Love the thrill of never knowing what you'll find if you dig down far enough. ROFL!!

I wish that I knew how to sew. You stuff looks great!
