Then a lady was clearing out her Nan's garage & I scored these fantastic teatowels which have never been used - 5 all together for only $3. The tag reads they are made in Milano. Not sure what to do with them yet - they were just too fantastic to leave for that price! I also scored a linen / crochet tablecloth but it is soaking so no pic.
Lastly there are to older ladies who have a stall every week selling patterns, trims, buttons & all odds & ends. I picked up this lovely old cotton trims for 50c / meter & they are always so nice & threw in this huge vintage button free (it is actually more of a peach colour, not brown like the photo).
