I promised you photos of some of the items I found at our local swap shop. Most of the clothing that I bring home will find its way (eventually!) to a new life in another form. Refashioned into a different type or size article of clothing, or a hat, purse, headband or pillow.
2X size, excellent condition. This one is destined
for my family summer cottage for family
wear on cool nights.
This Old navy dress is a great brown with metallic gold overlay. I may cut off the bottom for a cute skirt with a smocked waistline, for one of my many great nieces, then make a matching headband. Any other ideas?

This tucking will look great in something!

This one is going to be a summer shirt for me!
These are just a few of the items of clothing I've found. I also find other useful things like a chicken waterer which I gave to my friend who sells eggs, appliances for some of our tenants, books for light reading (which always get returned for someone else's reading pleasure :) Yesterday, DH found a Greist sewing machine attachment, not in the swap shop, but in the trash metal pile. I was sad to realize that the sewing machine that it came from had probably been trashed and taken to be sold for scrap metal. But I was glad to have saved this small piece.
