I made the rounds yesterday at the thrifts, I think I spent a whopping $4.50 - you know those are going to be small finds..
These were unopened, but not anymore - a pack of 8 Hallmark Halloween party invitations that sold for 60 cents, I paid 50 cents.
These older Old Maid cards were in a bag at Value Village, I just wanted those cards, my kids used to have them in the plastic case, that's the only reason I wanted them, they're not even the same set they had, but.....
One lone Vera came home with me, it's not a beautiful pattern, that's for sure, another one added to the collection.
I bought this book at a little shop on our way home, in Maine. I was so happy with this find - I see them on Ebay for not very much and I didn't pay much but I know that around this area that anything Dionne would go much higher. I did a blog post in June on the Dionne Quints after I visited their childhood home which is only 2 1/2 hours from where I live - here is that post and also a page that I SMASHed on that day. I won't go into all that again as I did touch on their life in the previous post. They were just the cutest!
I forgot to share this from the 70 Mile Yard Sale - somehow my Hands Down game is gone, my kids used to play with it when we went home, well, now we have another one for the future, I left it there. I loved that game!!
I brought a couple of watches back with me - I know nothing about them, but the one in the box is very unique, it was used but the box is like new and it has the price tag hanging on it. I guess they belonged to someone in my family bu tI don't know who! I'm going to use them for decoration.
This came from my mother-in-law's house, someone had a prize winning dog but we're not positive who that was, they did well at that dog show back in 1949.
This old photo album is full of greeting cards from the 70's - it's so neat, I have a hankie holder in the same kind of suede material. Some of the etchings are original, others were written on it.
