Well, even in the rain, we went to the town wide yard sale in Rutland. And even in the rain, we had a blast, even though Jon only came home with 4 little matchbox cars. I came home with one free G crochet hook, a bird feeder for Zorro, a Dinosaurs video, and... drumroll please.... 11 sweaters... 2 from Goodwill, 1 from Salvation army, but 8 from Rutland. I got:
(NOTE: this is more for my future knowledge than anyone else's. But hey if anyone else is interested, be my guest & read!!)
one olive green Karen Scott Petites large 100% cotton cardigan sweater, pd $2 & the first sweater of the day!
L women's petite Lands' End sweater in a pinky salmon, $2 second sweater of the day! Same yard sale as first sweater. She also had a wool sweater, but the condition was only so-so, so I passed
S Fashion Bug 55% ramie, 45% cotton faire aisle type sweater, main color is a tweedy lt brown, with purples & blues in the design, $2
this one was a maybe - a M Tiara Int'l sweater, striped colors, 55% ramie, 45% cotton, with a small hole. red, dark gray, brown, and purple - definitely an ugly sweater knitted as is! I was definitely debating, for for $1- I decided to go for it. I am falling in love with ramie/cotton blends which is why I decided to buy.
one of my fav's of the day - a dark gray, size 12 Old Navy sweater, 77% cotton, 23% wool, I think it's about a sport weight. DH's not a huge wool fan, so this will end up something for him. $1
Old Navy large 100% lambwool sweater in a beautiful light orange shade (I so love orange), looks about a DK weight $1
L Kenji 95% lambwool, 5% nylon sweater cardigan , rusty orange in color, incl 4 buttons on each sleeve. I'm a little nervous about frogging this one with all the buttons, but it was $1 - worse comes to worse, the buttons are worth the price & it's ORANGE!! and wool! How can one go wrong?
a ribbed S Old Navy red ribbed sweater, with a bit of stripes across the chest - dark navy, white, and gray, 100% cotton for $1. After I bought it, I realized how tiny this sweater is - really small. Not sure if it's even an adult sized sweater, but it looks too big to be a kid's sweater, so maybe it's just a really small small!
men's large Lands End olive green (slightly different shade than above) 100% cotton, $2.50 Goodwill (50% off of normal $5 price)
men's tan/lt brown ribbed Express sweater, L, 100% cotton, $2.50 Goodwill
