The downtown area of where I live has about six blocks of antique shops and upper-class thrift stores. I usually avoid those. The best thrift shops here are the ones run by local charities and churches (there are probably around 30 different ones). They are all very cheap, and often contain a lot of new or nearly new items that have been donated. We also have three (maybe four) goodwills in the area, two of which are huge. The biggest one get's most of its clothes from big name stores like dillards, target, and jcpenney, so you can get brand new clothes there (still with tags) for just a couple bucks. It's surprising, really, how many thrift and antique stores that we have here when you consider that my city is actually kind of small.

I will happily do personal swaps for beads, buttons, and fat quarters!

 no thrift store neither here, but I'm going anyway to crochet-knit ^^
I've only seen one pretty yarn so far.. I have to look in other places, or online (but online I can't touch the yarn etc, prefer to see something near here!).

Oh god I wish it was college school. Adults are like. A thousand times easier to be around than 25 kindergarteners. Seriously. lol. I am trying to figure out when I'm going to be able to drive around town. I have a ton of thrift shops out here, but most of them seem to carry stuff I couldn't use for something like this.

Hope is the thing with feathers
That perches in the soul,
And sings the tune--without the words,
And never stops at all

I'd swap trying to lead a group project of 17 people for teaching 25 kindergartners any day.

Already got a small and matching medium in the works with plans for the large - just a matter of getting paid and getting my supplies.

I have a few things planned for my partner. I have to wait until I get paid then I am buying the supplies. But that might not happen until next week because the highway is shut down due to major flooding last night. I am basically stuck where I am until the waters recede enough so I can get to the nearest craft stores 30 minutes away. Undecided On top of that no mail can come in or out.

My local op shop had a fill-a-bag for $5 yesterday so I cut sick. Found enough supplies to make one pinned thing, and possibly the start of a steampunky thing if it's the right size and a bunch of military feeling stuff for me, just because it was there.

I hear that another shop about 20 minutes drive away has a $1 bag special on right now, so I've sent my op shopping queen friend on a mission to find clock parts and other cool things.

I just wanted to say that whoever got ClonedBravo as a partner is a lucky duck. I just did a personal swap with her, and she is awesome! She made me a cute little wallet in gryffindor inspired colors that I am going to dress up with a gryffindor patch, and she even sent me an extra little bag along because its lining reminded her of the invisibility cloak. Now my appetite for all things Harry Potter has been satisfied, and I was able to send her some of the extra fabric samples that I had (and still have more of if anyone's interested).
