Bargain Mart 2012 wasn't what we were hoping for, but it wasn't a total bust either. It was basically a large indoor yard sale in a small warehouse. It had been open for 3 hours when we arrived so maybe we missed the best stuff! We did find a few things that we're nice little finds, and we paid about $8 for everything!
I found some crafty materials like thin yarn, zippers and embroidery floss. I also grabbed two men's ties and a paperback book.
All this for less than $5!
I love the penguins!! I think they're adorable. No, I won't make my husband wear these ties. I want to make some sort of wallet/wristlet out of them or something. I've seen ideas on Pinterest and I'm hoping to try it out on these. I especially want to try turning fat ties into skinny ties for my husband. I see so many nice looking ties in thrift stores and Goodwill Stores but they're all really thick and that style is long gone! I really like this wristlet that I've seen a lot of. It's doesn't look TOO difficult to make...but then again...it could be.
These are pretty cute too. I think they'd make adorable little gifts for girl friends. I could make them and stuff 'em with cute little mini bottles of perfume, shampoo, conditioner, lotion, etc.
And I really like this idea! Now if only I had a camera to make it for...
This last one is the kind of thing I don't really like. It's creative, but I personally wouldn't wear it.
What do you think? How should I repurpose these old ties?
P.S. Don't forget to set your clocks back by one hour tonight! Fall back! :) Enjoy that extra hour, folks. I know I will!
Till next time,
