Woohoo!!! Just have to share!!! As y'all probably already know, I just love thrift stores!!! While in West Virginia, my friend and I went into an antiques and fleas store that I used to haunt when I lived in WV. I came across a plastic bin full of patterns--Daisy Kingdom patterns!! I went through and picked up any that were still factory folded, which were about 12 of them. No price on any of them. The woman who was working there had to call the person whose consignment they were. I kept telling myself if they were not more than two dollars I would buy them. I couldn't believe it!! They were only 50 cents each!!! Needless to say, I went back to the bin and bought all of the rest!!! Take a gander:



That's 35 Daisy Kingdom patterns!! All of them for 50 cents! Oh, except for the bottom right one--I got that at a Goodwill store for 99 cents .

I am in hog heaven!!!

I couldn't take a gander, did I miss the link? Anyway, what a find, DK anything is one of my all time favorites, the styles are right up my alley. I even have some of the dolls so even if I can't make the people dresses I can make doll dresses from these patterns. Have fun!

Thanks, All! It gets even better --it would seem whoever owned them must have just traced the patterns onto tissue paper! The ones that I thought were cut were actually just cut around and all of the sizes are still intact!!
