Several smaller, upscale cities in Western Washington have 'yard sale' days.
Honestly - it the one day during the year when everyone puts they stuff in the yards and tries to sell it.
Since we were in one such city on Saturday looking for more dishes.
We decided to just look around.
We didn't come home with lots of other people's junk.
We got the dogs some new toys (kids stuffed toys are great).
and I found one house that had a bunch of old spools of thread - wooden spools!
They are hard to find - granted the thread is no good - but the colors are bright.
I bought 25 small wooden spools, most with thread, the strange plastic sewing box with
a pair of scissors and a strange tool for a whopping $3.
They will be a pretty addition to the studio.
