Thrifty morning out

I had a few hours to myself yesterday and went off to thrift stores. I got two pairs of shorts for myself and some clothes for my youngest butI spent a lot more on fabric and notions. I couldn't pass them up and I'll put them to good use eventually.

Two aprons. The green one has nice hand stitchery. The red child-sized one is in French.

Kyoto and Waverly fabric strips, a 1967 fabric calendar (the year dh and I were born), two pairs of napkins in fruits and flowers.

Top: linen cloth with two maple syruping scenes, brown and turquoise barkcloth.
Bottom: Vintage Pinocchio book, various floral linens.

A long tapestry of windmills, sailboats and tulips. Tags says "Souvenir of Holland."
I thought the timing is perfect since tulips are blooming here right now.

The big bounty. Three piece of Persian-style fabric. The one on the left is a small square, the middle is a pair of curtains and the right is a 4-1/2 yard piece. Plus lots of trims.
