I came across this beautiful red Mickey Mouse sheet at Value Village recently, and I was surprised to see that it was in perfect condition.
It came as a two-piece set with a much more worn pillowcase.
My mystery was solved a few minutes later as I flipped through the rest of the rack - I found the matching fitted sheet in a much more faded condition, so I left that behind. I realized that the flat sheet was probably never used at all! There is no fraying and it is in completely mint condition.
I love finding clues like this. I wasn't interested in the fitted sheet anyway since I wanted to buy this for use as fabric for my crafty sister. I've seen this pattern on ebay and it appears that the set is from the 80s.
I paid $6 for the sheet and pillowcase, which I thought was a bit steep for a used twin sheet, but I went for it because it was basically brand new.
I really like the brightness of the material and how Mickey is making all these fun faces. =)
Hope everyone's new year is off to a great start! I'm linking up to the the Penny Worthy Project, HLA's Flea Market Finds and ATG's Thrift Share Monday.
