Lucky girl! It's a gorgeous one.

You are so lucky. Isn't it great to find something you've been looking for? And at such a bargain! You are especially lucky. Here in Bismarck, the thrift shops all have the same policy. If there is no price they won't sell it to you. They keep it, then mark it and put it back out the next day or later.

I know exactly which article you are talking about. My Mom showed it to me after I picked up a Bates fringed table cloth at my thrift store. Your coverlet is beautiful!

Mary

I love that thrill of finding something you KNOW is valuable and is SUCH a bargain! Keeps me going back each week! Congratulations!! :-)

Pasha Grant

That is about the biggest thrill for me too--big bargain, clueless clerk. Today is my big thrifting day--wish me luck!

Its gorgeous! I love it! Thrift stores are so fun. We have a few in Chicago, but my favorite is the Salvation Army thrift store. Its huge and has everything and more.

What a lucky find, and what a bargain! Your heart must have been doing somersaults. It's a beautiful coverlet and would look good on my bed....

Maureen

Such a beautiful coverlet, what a great find. And that, my friends, is why I love thrift store shopping.

How lovely ... thanks so much for sharing your find with us. It is perfect.

Wow and wow again! I love the vintage textile treasures that other people don't seem to value... My friend Lis and I have been working on some old hand embroidered chair backs to give them a new life. They are so beautiful I hate them to be stuffed in the back of a cupboard or, worse, thrown away!
