Picking Treasures!

So normally when we go picking I'm mainly looking for basics: large wool pull over sweaters, bedsheets, basic men's dress shirts.  But to get all the fancy doilies and vintage handkerchiefs I have to go into this weird miscellaneous bin.  A lot of thing things that end up in this bin are things that you might have to ask, "what is this?" and ponder for a while.  There are a lot of small fabric remnants, non-descript ornamental fancies, dish towels and sometimes doll clothes.  This time I was lucky enough to find some choice handkerchiefs and my prized pick: a mini bolt of vintage lace!  I'll be saving this lace for something special!
