Thursday's Treasure

The newest thrift store around here (Savers) has a section near the sheets for unused fabric.  I always look but rarely buy, since it's somewhat difficult for me to authenticate age of material.  Unless of course it has a date or is beyond obviously vintage.  And sometimes that happens!
Flocked fabric in excellent condition is so hard to find.  And I now have about 2 yards of each of these.  Wouldn't they make precious baby dresses?
What treasures have you found lately?

I love the dotted swiss! I have fond memories of my mother making dresses for me from it. Great find!

I haven't been thrifting as much as I used to -- especially when my kids were younger and they would accompany me. We always enjoyed those little jaunts out. However, last month I found an old red tin toy ironing board. Had to have it!
