Vintage Feedsacks from Arkansas
I just returned from a trip to Arkansas. We were there mainly to visit dear friends, but also to see a part of the country we hadn't been to before. We spent a few days in the Ozarks in the lodge at Mt Magazine. Gorgeous place and stunning views.
Then we headed over to our friends in Fayetteville. Fayetteville is a cute little college town with a Farmer's market in the town square, little coffee shops, and hip vintage stores showcasing Midcentury Modern décor.
While I would have loved to come home with some of the furniture pieces, room in the car was tight, so I had to limit purchases to smaller items. As with many of the antique malls around here, fabric yardage was scarce, but thankfully, I was able to find some fun feedsacks.
Of course, the pink is my favorite.
I really like it when I can find multiples of the same print and this navy blue dot and pink & blue floral came in pairs. :)
And I thought this blue one with little doodle flower pictures was just too cute.
I also found a couple yards of a Waverly Glosheen fabric in pink and orange...such a fun color combo!
I bought a 6 yard length of vintage toweling, but it's still drying on the line, so I'll have to share that one another time. :)
It was still pretty green in the Ozarks, but we drove through some pretty fall color in Missouri. Have the leaves turned yet where you are?
Enjoy the week, everyone!
