Today I scored...

Today started out rather frustrating...I was looking for a pair of hooks and a strap adjuster for a camera bag I am making for a client...I looked everywhere...no luck...just when I thought I was going to have to buy a huge amount of them on-line...I really only wanted one...I drove past the Salvation Army Store...The sign in the window said 10 pieces of clothing for $10...

So I stopped in and found 10 pieces of 100% wool clothing for $10.00...Score..yes, things like this really excite me!! Why, you ask...well, I love to work with wool...and it's very expensive to buy...and I live in Southern California...who wears wool here? No one...I can tell you that, so when you find wool....it's usually really old...which is good. It probably came here with someone years ago. It wasn't just the wool I found that excited me ...I found a practically new bag with...would you believe this...a 2 inch handle, complete with hooks and adjuster....perfect ...and it was only $1.25!! Yeah me!! Little things make me happy...
What made you happy today??

Are you going to felt that wool? Looks like you have enough to keep you busy for a while! Your photos reminded me of Poway. After all these years, I still miss the CA climate!

I love the second hand store and go almost weekly. But your wool score is definitely unique. I look for wool but have a hard time finding it here - and I live in Ohio!!
