Look at all the fabulous flea market finds!!!!!!

ok.  there is really nothing better than handmade. really.  handmade is good.  handmade is the roots of american living.  Hand picked, hand dyed, hand woven, hand knit, hand sewn.  It’s all good.

BUT

if you can’t make it from scratch, and if you can get it at a GREAT PRICE from a flea market and then make something wonderful from it, it is really really good.

Use it up

wear it out

make it do

or do without.

OR GET IT FROM A FLEA MARKET!!

8 balls of blue wool

bag of red and white wool

size 11 bamboo DPN’s

2 balls of blue

free ball of pink

cute rabbit furoshiki (for wrappin up and carrying things)

I got there early but they were already into heavy discounts….. about 20 vendors and 3 of them had yarn!!!  it was a good day my friends, a very good day.

Oh, and for those of you wondering….“what are you going to make?”  Well, that doesn’t matter.  Just finding it and possessing it is good enough for now.
