This Week’s Vintage Finds
Well, actually, last weekend’s finds. My friend and I headed to the East Bay Depot for Creative Reuse, “an ecological treasure trove of art & craft materials, educational supplies, vintage furniture, home décor, paper goods, fabric, and much more.” We got there about five minutes before they opened and there were already people gathering outside in line! It’s fair to say that the best fabric got grabbed up in the first five minutes. The fabric pieces above are my finds. I paid about $75 for about 30-35 yards of fabric. If all goes well, I should be able to get at least 10 garments from these pieces. I bought a few other fabrics but these were boring old solids I’ll be using for lining and other unglamorous usage.
I also picked up a good amount of buttons and belt buckles, including some made from bakelite. Those all weren’t awesome bargains but were definite finds.
