I've shown my gingham apron collection before. I have every color of the rainbow. Heck, I have many shades of each color of the rainbow. All my gingham aprons have small check print and chicken scratch embroidery on them. I never go looking for a new one to add to my collection. But, if I see one and it's in my price range, I add it to my Gingham Rainbow.
Today I found myself at a sale with a lawn full of items. It was a woman, her daughter and her husband. They told me stories about each item I looked at, but then quoted me really low prices. I don't know they story, but they wanted it gone. That's all I really know.
As I was talking to them, I was looking at the clothes. I never look at clothes at yard sale. But, I could tell these clothes were as old as the other items on the lawn. I spotted a red gingham shirt on one rack, then a green one on a different rack. I thought they were fun, but I certainly had no need for a rainbow of gingham shirts!
That's when the man walked up and offered me a Wal-Mart sack* to stuff with clothes for $1.00. Craaaap. You know I had to get those gingham shirts.
Each shirt exactly alike - handmade, same pattern, same buttons.
Pink, red, green, blue, black and purple.
A rainbow of gingham shirts.
Now, what in the world am I going to do with them?
*I got eleven things in that bag. The Bean said, "People should NEVER give YOU a bag to fill!"
The rest of the finds will be here on Monday. Like quilts and spaghetti poodles and vintage suitcases and more......Come back!
