Last Friday my friend Kelly and I took a little trip west of Lincoln. A few people have mentioned to me how much they love Et-Cetera Gift & Thrift Shop in Seward. We decided a planned detour was in order.

I made a quick sweep of the shop before treasure hunting and this vintage sewing basket caught my eye. It’s in really nice condition, especially on the inside. Needless to say it came home with me. It’s now home to my crochet blanket in progress.

What fun things have you found lately?

Spring garages sales are just around the corner. I can’t wait!

    That is so cute! I would have snapped it up, too!! It’s bigger than the first picture lets on…that is awesome!!!

    Two weeks ago my daughter and I found a vintage (or old looking anyway) dress form. It’s red on a red stand and it is cute and we love it! It currently is holding a few scarves I’ve made, but it’s getting me motivated to actually sew something clothes-ey…or make felt flower brooches…it’s a toss up!! :)
