Lots of Thrifting Fun

Here are some pictures of my weekend finds from a local flea market and thrift store. I have more time for thrifting these days, so there should be more regular posts her on my blog. I've set a goal to attract twenty followers by January 1, 2009. Wish me luck! :)

Anyhoo - About the finds:

#1 Toys: I found two vintage Strawberry Shortcake items; a rag doll and a Crepe mini. I also found some older Little People, a pair of CPK shoes, a Baby Bratz, and some My Little Ponies. I bought all of those items for resale. The little animals, the Strawberry Shortcake purse, and the dress from the Kelly doll are mine to keep. I can use the little animals and dress for custom dollmaking. The SSC purse is so cute that I plan to use it at the convention next year.

#2 Books: I love cookbooks, especially older ones from the 70's. They include "real" ingredients.
The chapter books are for my classroom and the Bill Clinton books are for my dad. Don't ask. He's crazy.
#3 The scrapbooking goodies: All I can say is Wahhh Hoooooooooo!!!!!!! This lady at the flea market not only gave me wonderful prices but she gave me her phone number. She has "more than 8" rubbermaid totes full of never out of the package, never used scrapbooking goodies. She's a retired consultant for a stamp company and has over 100 sets to sell. I can't wait to dig through all of those goodies.
Please keep checking my blog. Now that I have more time to go thrifting, I imagine that I'll be updating at least weekly.
