On a whim I decided to visit the thrift store that's more or less on my way home from work. I was looking at the bags of acrylic left-over yarns, when I spotted a bag full of what looked like a whole lot of finished crocheted stars, together with two balls of crochet cotton. Feeling sorry for whoever put in all this work, and thinking that maybe there might be a larger piece already sewn up, suitable for a doily or so, I bought the bag for $4.99. My total purchase of about $14 was discounted another $3.99, so I can argue that I got the bag full of crochet pieces for $1!
When I opened it at home, this was in it:
A large, fully sewn up crochet table cloth, definitely fit for a dinner table. About a third of the stars have tails hanging from them, but I'll gladly do the weaving in. No holes other than the ones that are supposed to be there. There are two or three areas with small yellowish stains, which are hard to see. Here is a close-up (the darker area is my shadow):
It will have to air out a bit, and then I'll wash it.
