Vintage 50's and 60's Novelty Fabrics ...

As Many of you who follow our blog have read about in earlier posts ....

Abbey and I were priveledged to attend an estate sale nearby that lasted about 9 weeks . It offered up some wonderful vintage finds from a thrift store that was once in business and helped needy teens. About 20 years ago the owners passed on and it was closed and has been in limbo ever since ..finally it came time for them to liquidate everything that had been left from all those years ago ..and boy was there alot and boy was it ever dirty and stinky. !! Along with the thrift store itself which was massive ..an old bus barn that housed two buses years ago was used as storage and had been filled end to end with thrift store donations that hadn't been touched in over 30 years ..

Needless to say Abbey and I tried to make it to each sale ..and boy did we find some fun vintage finds ..In those finds we came by some wonderful vintage novelty fabrics ...which we of course washed and cleaned so they are nice and fresh and have just listed 4 of them on Etsy ..

These pieces are fabulous for making vintage aprons, pillows, curtains, and so much more !!!
