Zipper Queen

Over the years, I have accumulated quite a collection of fabrics, patterns, buttons and other ingredients. I recently cleaned out my fabric and pattern stashes and thought it was high time to go through my huge zipper collection. FYI, those are mostly 2 gallon ziplocs. 🤦‍♀️

Ever since I started using really nice zippers – Riri, Lampo, Excella – I’ve become dissatisfied with anything less. It’s just so easy to order what I need or stock up on my annual trip to NYC. I plant Bryan at Ben’s and head over to Pacific and Botani with my fabric swatches and buy what I think I’ll need for the coming year. If only he knew how much money was invested in those little shopping bags. 😳 I mean, the Riri room at Pacific is like a candy store for me, I want them all!

Since I’m in a purging mood, I decided that today was the day to tackle the zipper stash. Once I got going, it was pretty easy. Now, the stash consists only of zippers that I will actually use!

And the purge pile. Nothing wrong with any of them, but I know I will never use them so better to pass them on to someone who will!

    What is the amount you are selling them for?

    I’m with you girlfriend! Once you’ve seen and used really unique, interesting zippers then old, plain zippers from decades past seem blah. You’ve inspired me to go thru my large container of zips and pare down. Thanks. Karen
