Vintage Flour Sacks & Coke Crates

On one of our outing we acquired 30 pieces of vintage flour sack cloth! There they were shining  & triumphing like diamonds in a display case at a Mission Possible thrift store. We were drooling and having a hard time choosing which pieces we wanted as they were all priced at $10 dollars each. The manager saw we loved each and every one of them and offered us a deal on all of it. It was one that we couldn't refuse!! Hello chair covers, throw pillows, and who knows what else. Feast your eyes on this loveliness
