I love Hudson Bay Blankets and all the National Park Blankets, but there is no way I will ever be able to afford a new one. Last year I scored a beautiful one at the Pasadena Flea Market. It was in excellent condition and even had the original seal on it. I had it professionally cleaned and gave it to my brother for Christmas. I'm always on the look out for another one at antique stores and flea markets.
I lucked out and found this piece of a blanket at Old Town Antiques in Eureka (where I got my grey pitcher). They wanted $15 for it, but I got them down to $10.
I have plans to make something out of this remnant for Riley, my vintage trailer. If you remember Riley's inspiration board, I had hopes of a Bay Blanket there.
Is there a certain item that you are always on the look out for when you are thrifting?
