One of the main reasons I went on the trip that day was to go to a craft store and pick up some floss for a special project.
(more on that later...)
During the trip, we also went around to several thrift stores with a new friend here. She and I had been to a couple of them before, but the rest were new to me - and they were all new to Jeff. Outside one of the stores, there was a big shelf rack with lots of random things on it. Jeff said, "Look, there's some floss." Sure enough, I saw a clear case with a bunch of embroidery floss in it!
The top of the case said "Olympus", which I've learned is a brand of embroidery floss that is made here in Japan. It is also the most plentiful to find in the craft stores.
Needless to say... I bought it!!
I haven't taken full inventory of everything in the case yet, but there sure are some pretty colors in it.
A bright shade of yellow in one drawer,
and shades of pink in another.
Some of the drawers are stuffed full, this one with one shade of pink,
There's also some that is an orange/rust color.
One thing I thought was really neat, once I got it home and had a closer look, is that there are Japanese characters molded into the front of the drawers.
I'm very happy with my thrift store floss find and I'm so glad that Jeff spotted it for me! :)
