I came home with a nice assortment of things yesterday, seeing how I haven't been finding much of anything, I think this is my best haul in a while. I am so proud of this first item, I think it was a major Value Village find - and once again, I think it must be a rookie pricer - why was this priced at only $2.99? It still has the original tag, 1981 is on the tag - it's a Fufel - made by Te-Ri, a Canadian company, it says there are over 200 different dolls. This Lucky Leprechaun stand about 15 inches tall, he's just in perfect condition, he was sitting on a shelf with a bunch of green glassware - I looked him up right away on my phone when I was there, people sell them on Ebay and some for a pretty penny. First I thought I would sell him, but I can't, he's just too cute...
We call him Liam!
I have never decorated for St. Patrick's Day, both of our families are from the highlands of Scotland, but I guess I'll be putting something out this year, because I found this too, in with the bagged stuffed animals... I wonder if they were donated by the same person....
Ziggy - with the original tag from 1988, paid $1.99
I always seem to see the same Eloise Wilkin books over and over again, finally, I found a different one...
I think this one has the cutest illustrations of any that I have.
These little miniature Easter decorations were $1 at SA - they were distributed by Regal, I had to get them, I used to sell Regal way back when..... The gift wrap says it is all occasion but it looks like Easter paper to me. The little bunny was in the showcase at SA, I asked how much, 50 cents, sold! At first I thought it was an ornament, but it's a candle and it's in really nice shape. It was the only worthwhile thing in their Easter showcase display, everything else was dollar store merchandise.
Great colors for Easter crafting.
Chipboard tags and pieces - they'll come in handy for crafting and smashing.
It's not very often you see wooden spools, I have a few now so I'm all set to start my spoolie for the Easter swap!
I was on a dry spell for Vera scarves too - I actually found the top three in Florida last week, my only thrifting purchases there - the one on the right is a cotton square, my first cotton Vera! The scarves were 3 for $5 - not bad, at all! I found the scarf on the bottom at SA before I went away.
