1  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Discussion and Questions / Yard Sale Gold Mine on: January 24, 2008 08:32:55 PM
I bought a 50's table off craigslist and when I went to pick it up, the lady literally had a garage sale in her living room. She told me to look through everything and much to my delight, her mother was a craftster!

Here's what I got:

Fabric, dolls, a crocheted owl....


The Kewpie dolls are my favorite! 

2 rolls of old wrapping paper and a roll of 50's wall paper!



Here's the actual table that I got (I'm going to refinish it)


Any ideas on what to do with the wallpaper???

I might go back and buy the rest of her Kewpie dolls just to have.  They're basically NOS at $1.50 each!!!!

I got the owl fabric from a quilting store in southern California.  My mother in law took me shopping for fabric for my birthday.

I was very dubious about finding good fabric in a quilting store but they had tons and tons of great reproduction fabrics (just not very cheap - $8 a yrd).

We don't really have dollar stores in Northern California.  (We don't even have Walmart)

Is there anywhere else to get Gerber onesies cheap?

I have a co-worker and a friend who just had baby boys.  I wanted to do some iron on transfers but had the idea of making patches out of some fabric.







I found some clearance onsies at Target (WHO knew they were so expensive?Huh) and cut the owl out of the fabric shown above.  I then used a heat transfer tape to iron on the onesie and the last step is to sew it down on the onesie itself so it's completely secure.   

I think I might use red thread.

Great idea!  I am also in love with this color combination!

Great job!  Very impressive that you did that without a pattern. 

I LOVE AB's fabric!

Hi,

I'm an East Bay crafter too and would also like to find a group. 

I talked briefly with an Oakland girl on ETSy about a group that met once. 

Perhaps we can form our own group? I know theres gotta be more crafters in the East bay then just us 2!

It makes my heart ache because I want to travel so badly.

Thanks for posting these!

I really like that bag.  Did you have a pattern?

Cute.  It kinda looks retro-swedish.  I really like it.
