Wash My Cloth Goes Holiday

If you know me, you will be astounded that I am thinking about Christmas gifts already. I know, it's crazy. I didn't say I was 'making', just thinking. And preparing for sale on Etsy.com. While in Chicago, I made some cute Christmas stockings from dish towels and always get compliments on them as they hang on my Grandmother's dry sink.

Here is a sneak peek at some of the bargains I found in Chicago. There is a great store there, hidden from regular shoppers. In fact, I introduced this place, 1730 Outlet - TAG, to Meredith. Meredith pretty much knows about every shopping and dining experience in Chicago, so to introduce something to Meredith is quite an accomplishment. Anyway, it is similar to a Pier 1 Imports, all discounted. They have all seasons and holidays, all the time. They have mostly housewares, but mix in fun accessories. I also got some of these at Cost Plus World Market, which we REALLY need here in Buffalo or anywhere in the East. I'd travel.


Not so sure about the last batch, these are napkins and not towels. I hope I have enough fabric to get a decent sized stocking out of it.
