I am a thrifter.
If there is a thrift store around, I will be there. I like to find material from such stores and find a new use for it.

The best fabric is that with a history, some old sheets that the owners no longer stretch across the mattress, they make perfect cloth grocery bags. Floor length vintage drapes, that have found themselves hanging lifeless in the thrift store, I will rescue them and make them something special again. If I can keep just a portion of the fabric from a landfill, it makes me happy.

I can't wait until everyone is using cloth bags when they shop at the grocery store. Think of all the beautiful patterns that we might see as we walk to our cars, or pass a neighbor in the parking lot. I think it adds a little personality to grocery shopping. So everyone rid yourself of plastic, and get some great cloth grocery bags!…
