I love going to thrift stores. There have been times when I have visited them out of necessity and also times when I went for entertainment and the thrill of a treasure hunt. Being a deeply sentimental person, I enjoy thinking about the history of the objects and the people who may have use them before me.
I recently stopped by Value Village on the hunt for some home goods (I just love those lightweight, vintage Correll plates). Of course, the moment I was in the door I was completely distracted by the crochet I saw everywhere. Do you have crochet radar? I seem to see crochet everywhere I go. Many of the pieces that I saw were quite nice, and I was a bit sad to see that their original owners didn't want them. Let's take a moment to appreciate the work that went into them.
