Thrift Store Cool Find


I stopped by Salvation Army thrift store yesterday and didn't find much. But this I love. This hand embroidered towel and pinned to it was this blue ribbon. 1924!! And the fair entry papers were carefully wrapped up inside the towel. Some little guy made this in 1924 and won a blue ribbon! I love things like this. Wonder if this guy is still alive. If he is, he would probably love to have this back. Most likely he is not and his kids dropped this off with some of his estate items. How sad.

What a wonderful find! It's a shame no one submits things to fairs any more, myself included! Growing up we had the West Texas Fair and if you got cotton candy it always had a taste of west Texas dirt on it! It never stopped me from eating it! Great post. Oh and thanks for stopping by Lilly's Lace!

I agree, this is a terrific find. I also find it sad when family doesn't want things like this (or photographs) any longer.
