Welcome to the daily series “In Search Of,” where we look high and low on Krrb for one-of-a-kind items that we must have now! Today, it’s all about “Vintage Fabric” and we’ve got loads of it.

In thrift stores and at garage sales, piles of fabric are left discarded and alone. No more. Vintage fabric can be one of the cheapest and most beautiful ways to reupholster a chair, sew a pillow, or even make a handbag. We’re seeing one-of-a-kind vintage fabric pieces all over Krrb.
