My return to the thrift shop!

It's not that I've been avoiding the thrift stores lately. Just haven't been in the mood lately I guess. But I decided yesterday I was on a mission this week to find a piece of furniture that could serve as the beginning of a kitchen for Sydney. So off we went. Of course I didn't find what I was looking for...

Instead I found this fun chair for only $4. Its in good shape and pretty comfortable. I just need to find it a home before my husband comes home! For some reason he thinks we have too many chairs.


And the ultimate in thrift store finds...Japanese fabric!! I think its adorable. I especially love the odd little sayings.Hmm, burning hot fried eggs don't sound that great to me, but whatever! I paid more than I normally would for it, so I'm considering selling a couple yards of it just so it doesn't hurt so bad! If anybody is interested in a little Japanese cotton fabric just let me know.

That fabric is great! What a fantastic thrift find. I have found a few good pieces of fabric at thrift stores, but nothing as great as Japanese fabric. If you're planning on selling any of it, I would be interested! I love the funny Japanese-to-English translations.

Awesome finds, Roxanne!
My mom had a set of these chairs when I was growing up. They're pretty comfy and definitely kid-friendly.

Cute fabric! Unbelievable that you found it at the thrift store. How many yards did you get?
