Thrift store fabric finds

I decide to pop into my local Kiwanis the other day. You never know what kind of goodies you'll find when thrift store shopping. This time I found a couple leaflets. One has a few different styles of teddy bears and even a koala. I've been looking for a koala pattern for a bit now. When I picked up this leaflet, I didn't even realize it was in there.

I found a few different fabrics in the fabric bins. Some I grabbed just 'cuz but I knew the one piece with the cars on it would be perfect for a little boy quilt I was making. I believe it is a flannel fabric. The rest was bought just in case. I'm sure I will find a use for them eventually :)

When I was getting ready to pay I spotted the light blue fabric (a Carebear valance) and the blue fabric with the rainbows and clouds. They were just laying over the back of a couch. Nobody was there so I figured someone just left them there. Their loss, my gain lol.

This one was all rolled up. I didn't bother unrolling it though. I wanted some grey fabric and liked the way this one looked with the stripes. When I got it home and unrolled it, I found it had these nice sections with the flowers. I think this will be nice on the back of a quilt.

I also went over to the bedding section and found 3 fitted black sheets that were only $1 each. I can always use black fabric, so they went home with me too.

All in all it was a good day.
