Lookee What I Found!

Hey, bargain hunters who adore grabbing up those awesome boho threads hidden in the midst of all that tiresome attire!!

In the Apopka, FL, area: Cindy’s Critter Care

I’m ecstatic over my latest finds!

Not only did I unearth some lace curtain panels to use in making or trimming something—incredibly cheaper than going to the fabric store, and added another crocheted piece to my collection, of which I will make something…

but…I discovered, hidden amongst the mounds of clothes in large bins, these fabulous finds. I  ❤ ’em!

dsc_0149-red-capeThis elegant satin and velvet cape with velvet-covered buttons and gold trim is in mint condition! It looks like it has never been used! 🙂 I suspect it may be for a young girl: the neck is tight for me, and I’m small. However, I’m going to enlarge the neck a little and it’ll be perfect!

I delight in this exceptional find (right)dsc_0155-purple-dress—made in India ❤


Ok. I’m lettin’ y’all in on a secret—’cause there’s more than enough for everybody: Items of the bohemian persuasion— these that I shared with you being my most excellent finds to date—plus loads of humdrum habiliment, a.k.a. clothes— Lol. I wanted an “h” word. Lol. (had to look it up 🙂 ) —may be found at the Goodwill Outlet on South O.B.T. in Orlando, where merchandise is sold by the pound. The per-pound cost recently increased from .99/ lb to $1.19/ lb. But, still is a good buy.

One word of caution: piranha. Certain gangs of intense and aggressive shoppers—not unlike these vicious fish who attack in tandem—who are restrained by very stern-looking Goodwill personnel in a holding area until “fresh meat” has been situated on the store floor, rush madly at the newly brought-out merchandise bins in a frantic feeding frenzy, snapping up and quickly filling shopping carts with articles, particularly shoes. :-/ One can only presume that these extreme shoppers are purveyors of goods at a flea market!! Lol. Stand clear of this insanity!!!

Have fun…but beware! Lol!
