While thrifting...I found this Lily weaving loom with 4 bags of Lily Loops... Three of the packages never opened. As far as I know the Lily weaving loom and loops are from the 50's. Have they really been sitting in someones attic that long? Well, for a couple bucks...I picked it up. I love the old looms and loops...Unlike the ones that are for sale these days made of plastic and nylon. The old Lily loom is metal and the loops are jersy knit. I had fun with them too. I made 2 hot pads so far.
Look at the prices from back then...and the inflation of prices now...youch. A bag of loops now a days would be at least a few dollars or more.The loom has a price tag of 59. cents. Years later I got it for about the same price from back then in the thrift store.
I thought that was a pretty hot find for making some cute hot pads.
I like a bargain....Don't you?
