It happened to me again, I think I found something really good at Value Village, which probably should have been in the showcase. When I got to the cash, the cashier said - "those are collectibles" - that would be why I picked them up! I'm following the advice of Thrifter Sister Erica - she buys anything with Japan on it, so I am too - that's if it's cute, well, this was way too cute....
They're Lefton Mermaids - I'm partial to anything with red hair because I did give birth to a red head! The only marking was Japan and 3107 - I can see where the Lefton sticker was - what do you think? There's no a chip on them, they're not faded - they're the sweetest. I paid $5.99.
I researched them online, there are plenty of images, many that have been sold on Ebay and Etsy and a few listings now for buy it now - ranging from $150 and up! That was definitely the steal of the week!!
This old reader looks like it was never used - it's from 1966 - I only know the Dick and Jane readers, I've never seen this one before. Every chapter is about David...
This isn't an old book - it's the story of Anne before she came to Green Gables. PEI is the land of Anne, my home, so I had to get it and see just how Anne really did end up with Matthew and Marilla.
I found three Vera's in the last couple of weeks - it's funny, for a while I don't find any wing tip or split tip, whichever you want to call then and now that's all I've found lately - each one was $1 - that's only my second solid colour Vera - I would never really know except it still has the tag.
I had mail this week from Astrid - her blog is Fab and Thirty-Something, check out her blog and maybe start following her - she finds some great vintage things and in her travels she picked this Vera up for me - I love it - thanks, so much. And, look at the cute card she sent - it's sweet! I'm going to SMASH it!
