Thrift Store Finds

My Mother the Thrift Store Queen! Last weeks deal was several cakes of wool yarn for a dollar, This time it was an awesome pile of fabric samples, ring bound for salesmen.
Why, you may ask, is this so awesome? For three dollars I got 80 rectangles of colorful mid/heavy -weight cotton with pre-serged edges. Read -> pockets for less than .04 each.
This means for several weeks i wont be searching for scraps large enough to cut a pocket sized square, hemming the top, folding and pinning the sides... nope! Just pin and sew!
Most are bright, in modern colorful prints. Some like these ones are embroidered, these were fancy dish towels they were selling!
P.S. I saw the Star Trek Movie last night, awesome! Live long and Prosper

I love nothing better then finding a great bargain. Thanks for the reminder - I haven't checked out the local thrift shop in a long time.
