I recently thrifted a package of 7(!) handknit vintage sweaters online for €1:
The person I purchased them from had inherited boxes full of handmade knit gear, yarn and half-finished projects from an elderly relative but as she had zero interest in any of it was selling it all off for pennies – I would have taken more but with the upcoming international move I’ve really had to rein in my thrifting.
Unfortunately she’d already tossed the original 1980’s knitting pattern book that most of the sweaters were made from, fortunately I saved a few of the photos she had taken for the online ad before I picked up my gear.
Nearly all of my stunning new-to-me sweaters would have worked for A Dressed Down Glitter #ThriftyThursday but I’m completely smitten with this peek-a-boo sleeve batwing bit of 80’s glam (+ it matches perfectly with my pink socks & scrappy crocheted bracelet).
