Sewing Room Makeover: Where We Got It

Yesterday I finally posted the reveal of my mom's sewing room transformation, but since it was such a lengthy post (over 1900 words, yikes!), there just wasn't enough room to fit in the details about where the items you saw in all of those photos actually came from.

So...this post is dedicated entirely to sharing the ins-and-outs of where you can find the items you're curious about.
