CraigsList Box Continued

Filed under: Crafts,Thrifty Finds,Whatzit — Laura R @ 2:13 PM

Yesterday I showed you the crosstitch items I bought from a CraigsList ad.

I mentioned that there were other items in the box. Here is a quick representational view.
(I won’t bore you with everything.)

I have other versions of these punch stitch kits and have to admit I don’t remember the last time I tried doing this.
Who admits to being old enough to remember Macrame?
Does anyone decorate with macrame any more?   Will it come back into style?

a closer look

what is this called?

Still asking how to use this gadget.
edit: I have been told this is a needle threader

Lots of other small goodies as well.

So while I did not face the after holiday/pre holiday sales crowds I did shop local this past week.

I also spent Black Friday entering online contests. To see my posts about thousands of giveaways and online party opportunities, please click here.

  1. What a fun stash of goodies. Oh yes, I remember macrame. My first apartment was full of plant holders my mom made. Almost, I said almost, wish I still had them:-) Thanks for sharing.

  2. I loved doing macrame when I was younger. I cranked out plant hanger after plant hanger. I think it’s still popular, but in different forms. I’ve been seeing lots of macrame jewelry that’s very cute.

    Have fun with your stash & thanks for linking up to Knick of Time Tuesday!

  5. Your treasures got my attention. So many goodies. I did macrame too and loved doing it so much. I too wonder if it will come back.
    Hugs, Jeanne
