More Thrift Store Finds

IMG_2828Today I was out shopping the thrift stores looking for a dress for my daughter’s Halloween costume. Once I had a good dress in hand, I had to do a little searching for myself.

I found two small Battenberg style tablecloths, perfect for my next Jane Austen party, $3.99 each.

IMG_2827Not like anything I had planned to make for this year, so whether I can make it into something in time for this year’s ball I don’t know, but it will be made at some point. The scarf is long, about 8 feet, and a lovely ecru color.

The cost for this piece of loveliness? $4.99.  Score!



  1. That is so pretty! I think it will be perfect for the Austen Ball! What a fantastic inspiration piece.

  2. Yay! I love thrift store finds and I nearly always start there when making costumes for Halloween. The scarf is so lovely! What a great find!
