Uncle Sams and U find fun things when you shop thrift

Uncle Sams as Americana collectible. I love this being an election year, unstructured entertainment to say the least!

U find great things at the thrift shops! I fell in love with this boy and girl salt and pepper shakers. They hold a place of honor in my collectible room. Behind them is a voluminous handmade skirt, while I was wondering how I would find a match to such unusual fabric ...

Undoubtedly, I will model that outfit in an upcoming month.
Unless you are shy, please say you stopped by!
