The New Petit Point Purses

When I was at the quilt show in the Fayetteville area, I always go to the little shop or boutique that the guild runs. They are always selling neat and unusual things to make money for the guild. Well, this time I spent a whole dollar and got a petit point purse. Great luck. Just sitting there with a dollar price tag on it. I grabbed it up and ran to check out. It didn’t have a handle or a closure, but I can make something out of it or repair it.  Then a friend of mine was on an on-line auction. He found one and got it really, really cheap. BUT, when it is on-line you have to pay a premium and shipping and handling. That rose the price up a bit. But, it was a great purse with a wonderful scene for only $28.00. Well, done, my friend. Thanks for thinking about me.
