Some good loot. Okay, the large cloth santa was a wee bit of a dissapointment. Thought it was a childs apron, turns out it was a toilet seat cover. eew. Moving on...
Got a big ol' pile of hand made doilys? doilies? Also a great wool plaid blanket. Because hey, it was only 96 degrees out and I was a bit chilly :)
I LOVE this childs play apron. I should have taken a pic out of the package but it is a full apron in a cute plaid fabric with 3 pockets. One pocket holds scissors, one has a coloring book and one has some Noahs Ark crayons. Original box. Too (was totally thinking of you Renee!) I also got the vintage paddle game. Missing the ball but great graphic of boy and girl playing and .15 price printed on the handle.
Love grab bags and this one had 2 packages of spun heads (large and small) some cool gold sticker border things, an ADORBS felt bird with his original tag which reads "Welfare Handicrafts Made by China Refugee Development Organization Hong Kong. Interesting. Plus a plastic egg, and some trim. This lady was into crafting and had tons of craft stuff.
Also found these JUMBO paper straws with killer stripes which did not have a price and the nice lady gave me for FREE (silly lady). Package of hand towel napkins, some appetizer picks and a cute pin cushion made from a can. The bday candles aren't old but they were mixed in.
Lasty a huge bag of transfers for crewel/embroidrey. Some of them are great, Owls! Birds! Pretty Ladies! and I may even try to make a few. I am working on one now that I ordered online so we will wait and see how that one goes first.
So, like I said, lucky day! And when I went back to the DMV 3 hours later (yes they gave me a number and told me to come back in 3 hours) my number got called right when I walked in. So if you ignore that 3 hour wait then that was lucky too!! In other news I worked on a HUGE project all weekend which I cannot wait to share, but this post is long enough so I may just have to post two days in a row (gasp!) and post about it tomorrow. See you then!
