I always love trips to Lancaster for visits to my favorite places like Zook's Fabric Store, Goods Store & Shady Maple. This time my sister, Jean, and I spent most of our time in the local thrift stores as well.
My favorite was definitely Re-Uzit . We went to two different locations (New Holland and Ephrata) and we definately scored some great stuff. The prices were so low compared to the Baltimore area thrift stores, we went a little crazy!
One of my favorite finds was a bunch of vintage scissors for .25 to .50 each. They immediately found a home in my craft room in a small square jar.
We also found a ton of zippers - some vintage, some newer. They found a home in a half gallon mason jar that is place conveniently in my sewing area. We each got a huge bag of reclaimed zippers for 1.00.
I immediately tried my hand at something I've been dying to try - a zipper flower.
Look for another post soon to share more thrifty finds including linens and reclaimed wood finds from a roadside store.
