Another lucky treasure day

I was on my way to the post office, yesterday, when I received a call from Linda, my boyfriend's stepmother. She told me that she had a friend who was trying to get rid of some fabric and suggested that I go with her to have a look. They were selling it all for R300, which I don't really have right now, but I decided to go anyway.

We arrived at the house this afternoon and were lead to the man's garage. What lay before my eyes would make any fashion designer gasp with delight. Six large garbage bags FULL of fabric, and after peeking through a few of them I came to the sweet realisation that this was not bad fabric...

Its all beautifully gaudy fabric, perfect for vintage looking dresses and edgy pencil skirts...what fun! I am so excited, as I was looking through it all, my head was overflowing with images of exquisite little items. Whats makes it even better is that most of the pieces are large enough to make any item. Wonderful!


  1. ooh! very retro!

  2. beautiful fabrics!!! So inspiring to make amazing stuff with them! You do have an eye for lovely prints!

  3. wow what a lucky lucky find. I love the NASA print one. Now that would make a cool dress or pair of shorts... or a tote bag.
