Nifty Thrift Picks (8.05.09)

Sharing faves from the Nifty Thrift flickr group where people post pics of their nifty thrifty finds. A biweekly spot for me to publicly covet the finds of others :)

This one kinda needs to be viewed full-size to see just how great that alphabet stitching project is, and c’mon: “Love is a shared umbrella”… so cute! It makes me wonder what other sweet projects are inside.

Aren’t these the coolest?! I love the one with the children’s dancing silhouettes. You can check out the entire set here.

I've never seen anything like those light covers, they are so neat. It's amazing what people will get rid of. Thrift stores are my fave forever.
