Fabulous Yard Sale Find...

I tend to buy things that I love, 
but maybe don't know what I am going to do with them.  
(at least not at that moment. ;)

I am not a collector or hoarder, but I know what I like 
and I don't like regreting I didn't buy something !
Because of that, I am accumulating a mass of "treasures". 
 (My husband has a lot to say about this ;o  )

Loving this bag !
A yard sale find for a mere $1.50.
(Seriously, what can you still buy for 1.50 ?)

Maybe never even used...
Lined in a blue cotton fabric with an inside zippered pocket.
A tag reads "100% Wool".

Honestly, I think I bought it because of these adorable, colorful 
felted Poms that make the handle for the bag !!

Who could resist this wooly goodness ?
Never mind that it is so hot and humid outside, 
that I was overheated just walking from sale to sale ;)
(Oh, what we won't do for a bargain !)

Continuing to look for treasures this weekend...


  1. Great find Rose! I got one similar to this at the thrift store a few months ago - LOVE those little wool balls!

  2. Rose, I think you got a great deal and I've had snatched it up as well if I'd seen it.


  3. I love that purse Rose! The little felted balls just make it so unique and I have bought them for my Sue Spargo quilts and they are expensive.

  4. I would have bought it for $ 1.50 too. Great find.


  5. Very cute bag! And I love you hand-dyed fabric so I can see why you were drawn to it!

    Linking through from Sew Many Ways . . . and I am so glad that I did :)

  6. I would have bought it for those wool beads too.

  7. Aww what a find. In my book you can never have enough craft goodies :)

  8. Good Afternoon Rose, This is a lovely little bag and being 100% wool, I know that is why you were attracted to it. I love the little pom pom handles. Although you may not have a use for it at the moment, because it is so hot in your part of the world, but give it a few months, when the weather cools and it might be just the perfect thing for you or a family member. I know if my daughters had seen the bag in my house, it would not have stayed here for long.
    Have a lovely 4th July holiday tomorrow.
    Best Wishes

  9. Wow! Sounds like a great yard sale. Very cute bag--especially the handle! ~Roberta
