Friday Fabric Finds: June 24
This week's Fabric Finds come from a new source — The Legacy Thrift and Gift Shop up in Sebastopol. After spending the night in Yountville and running another 5k, we headed to Sebastopol to check out this store. About Legacy:
After many years of sewing and selling the things she made, Bess, a sucessful seamstress and crafter passed away. Her family decided to donate a portion of her fabrics and craft supplies to the Sebastopol Senior Day Program. This gift began a “legacy” that would create an ongoing opportunity in the community of Sebastopol.
In 1995, volunteers were organized to set up and run a local shop that would benefit what is now called the Sebastopol Area Senior Center.
Bess's legacy is a truly marvelous thrift store that is exclusively focussed on sewing, knitting and crafts. It's pretty cool to see all of this stuff in one place. Fabric is priced per pound, with cottons being $2/pound.
Here are my finds from Legacy:
This one feels like and looks like a feedsack print. However, there's too much yardage for it to be one. I do think it's old — just not a feedsack.
Added to my growing stash of pastel color, plaid seersuckers. I love the colors in this one!
Even though it's a reproduction fabric and not an original feedsack, I could resist grabbing this one.
I love this tropical print for the leaves! Now I just need to plan a vacation to justify wearing this one.
I'm convinced that this vintage print has something to do with Disneyland. The fact that it depicts a sailing ship, riverboat, train and carriage just seems too random. Since I'm a bit of a Disneyland fanatic, this print obviously delighted me to no end.
I'm not sure what I'll do with this flannel, but it was too cute to pass up.
