Goodwill Finds

On a day such as this....at a time such as this...had a whim to go to the Goodwill store in town. I usually go in about once a week, especially in the fall/winter months. Often I'll find some lovely things, like great wool sweaters. Today I found some really lovely, brand new, tags still on, merino sweaters that had just come in the back door. While there, a woman walked in, dropped off this incredibly beautiful Tibetan Lamb Wool Coat. I feel like I stole it. Paid almost $15.00 for it. It appears as thought it has never been worn. I could re-sell it, but it is just too wonderful to even think about doing that. I think it might very well go to Iceland with me. It does have two small tears in the collar area, but those will be fixed in no time.

I know that this entry has nothing to do with felting, but had to share the lovely surprises that do come our way, every now and again.

Happy felting!
Shalom,
Suzanne

Suzanne,
I, too, love Goodwill! A guilty pleasure of mine is making the rounds to all the second hand shops while my daughter is in nursery school. I think most of my wet felting tools came from these places, plus a few silk scarves and a pair of hand carders.
