My mother came across these 2 crocheted aprons that are in very good shape! I am so in envoy of the ladies who hand crocheted these sweet aprons. Oh if only I could crochet like them. I am guessing that these two aprons are mid-century given the size and popularity of crocheted aprons from the 1940's-1960's
Then today after running what seemed like a gazillion errands in town I treated myself to a quick "Stop & Seek" mission at one of the local Thrift Shops in Spokane. I can still hardly believe it, I got these 17 hand crocheted pot holders for $1.99
They are all in nearly perfect unused condition except for 2 of them that have small little yellow spots on them.
While at the Thrift Shop an odd thing happened....I had come across a Samsonite Train Case in very good condition for only $2.99...I was excited to bring it home, and decoupage it like I did with my other two..so I set it in my cart. I shopped a bit more then went up to the register to pay. As I was unloading my "finds" I discovered that the Train Case was not in my cart! OMG! someone took it out while I was not paying attention...I had parked my cart a couple of times, & with my back to the cart was looking at some sheets for future rag rugs....so I guess the lesson I learned today is,,,never turn your back on a great find or your shopping cart! lol!
