Thrift Store Finds

I went to the Salvation Army thrift store yesterday. I got two sweaters. The one on the left is 100 percent cotton, the one on the right is a cotton ramie mix. That one has a little loose yarn on the side seam which I'm going to fix, then into the washing machine they will go. Since we don't have a coffee maker at work any more I've been on the hunt for a thermos. I found one yesterday at Target, it wasn't very large, and it was $19.99. I wasn't about to spend that much on a thermos. Lo and behold, I found a thermos at the thrift store too, only $1.99. And I found that Detroit Lions insulated cup. Now, I'm not crazy about the Lions, I don't even like football, but I love this kind of cup. They are real hard to find any more, so for $1.99 I couldn't pass it up. The sweaters were on sale, buy a sweater, get one free! I love free! I didn't realize until I got home that I bought so much pink stuff. I must have breast cancer awareness month on the mind.
Speaking of that, I finished the breast cancer ribbon dishcloth, it's drying and blocking at the moment. I started a jack-o-lantern dishcloth last night from a free pattern I found on line. It's turning out cute so far, can actually tell what the picture is. I think I may take the pattern to work and run off a few copies for anyone who wants one at Tuesday night knitting.
I'm off to the store in a while. I want to get some tulip and/or daffodil bulbs to plant so my yard looks pretty next spring. I also want a storage container for all my cotton yarn, that way I can see what I have at a glance, a very big glance I might add. I have a lot of cotton! I also want to dig up a picker bush in the back yard today too. If I don't melt in the humidity.

Love the thrift store, it's like a treasure hunt. I don't blame you I wouldn't pay twenty for a thermos either.
