I'm always on the look out for an original Blythe doll when I'm antiquing. It's a pipe-dream, but worth a look at the toys. In my elusive search, I came across this amazing little Necchi toy sewing machine. I was really tempted, but resisted the urge to bring it home. Isn't is dear, though?! And it really sews.
Amy Butler floral that I've been eyeing.
Okay - so day two was thrifting - lots more to look at and many more things came home with me. I was sorely tempted by that lovely kelly green vintage beauty, but again, I resisted. All the photos below the sewing machines are things I did bring home.

|Vintage plaid fabrics - 3yd each. Original Newberry's tag - 67 cents a yard!|
|Lots of yardage. l to r: Two nice cottons for muslin projects, two huge lengths of satin for lining, two remnants of pretty fabric I couldn't resist for a quarter.|
|Some knitting stuff and vintage buttons.|
|The bane of my husband's existence - more bias tape! Love the patterned one, especially.|
|Some fasteners and zippers to add to my stash.|
