The Going Green Hook-Thrift Store Finds
Before you head to your local Craft Store, consider stopping first at your local thrift shop like Salvation Army or Goodwill. I get many supplies for my crochet projects there. If you think out of the box, you can find tons of things for your projects there. Here are just a few of the things that I look for. Bed sheets can be used for Rag Crochet. Old worn t-shirts can be used to make a soft comfortable yarn. I will also check out the purses and belts to recycle the hardware from them as well. Already made sweaters can be unraveled for the wool too. Plus, check the book section. I head there first as it is one of my favorite places to find old and vintage crochet books. Some of the larger thrift stores I have been to also have a craft section, and have found yarn as well from a project some one had meant to start and didn't. A great way to recycle, giving a new purpose to unwanted items. Your pocket book might thank you as well. As thrift stores are very affordable, not only are you saving the Earth but some money as well. Such a good thing, so next time, head to the thrift store first!
