Vintage Thingie Thursday : Vintage Chenille Bedspread

Welcome everyone to Vintage Thingies Thursday

If you have a love for vintage things, have come to the right place. We have a really good time each and every week!!!
If you are new to this party, please take the time to
read and follow the instructions for participating in Vintage Thingies Thursday, click HERE. I try and keep things fairly simple, so please make sure you follow the instructions. Please only ONE link per week. Lastly, if you link in, LINK back to my blog, so everyone can see all of the vintage goodies on display that day. If you don't link back here, they won't know who to visit......thanks so much. Lastly, try to make an effort to visit the other participants. I know myself, I get so behind and busy, but this year, I am going to do my best to visit each week. 

Oh, I was so lucky this week when I stopped in at a new thrift shop. I was quickly browsing the isles and spotted (just barely) a chenille bedspread on the rack. It had a tag, but no price so I had to ask how much it was....when the guy went to find out, I took a peak at the beauty I was holding and absolutely could not believe my good fortune!

When  the clerk came back to tell me the price was $6.00, I just about jumped for joy! But....I held it together and walked no, ran to the counter to pay! I sorta felt guilty....but my husband said not to feel guilty, that I very gladly gave them what they wanted for it! Still.....

It is in mint condition, pristine in coloring....and exactly like new...wish I knew where it  has been all of these years......I am loving, just loving it!!! It is not too often I run across such great finds...but this day was my lucky day!

Happy Vintage Thingie Thursday!
