bedbugs and it didn't take me long to find an article that addressed bed bugs and the thrift shoppers like me. We are the ones who need to be warned. Kathy Durgin-Leighton warned me as SOON as she heard about bedbug infestations in neighboring towns, since she knows I love to find clothing and fabric at the barn. Thanks, Kathy.
I try very hard to NOT use my dryer, EVER, but if I must, I must. For I am not ready to give up the thrill of finding gems in the bin like this dress, which became my Shirley Partridge Halloween costume a few years ago.
Besides the dangling mascot over the first floor clothes bin, visitors to the barn this week will notice the removal of the clothes storage bins on the second floor of the barn. Bed bug prevention measures again. They may return, but for now it is safety first. I appreciate the safety measures and the chance to both donate and take clothing. I know I'll risk a lot to experience the joys of the barn. Today's joy? A hand-crocheted doily that had a small pink stain on it. As we speak I'm dying half of it pink and the other half green. Then who knows what I'll make out of it.
