I'm sure you thought that I'd forgotten I wanted to get a bunch of $1 items this year (see my list, #21), but I haven't. I just haven't had the opportunity to get out and do some "shopping". However, this weekend, I went to a rummage sale at my friend's church. I got there a little late -- they opened at 9 and I got there at 9:30 and most of the good stuff was already gone. However, I persevered and found a few things. There were some really cute plates, but someone scarfed them up while I was thinking about them, the same for some cute juice glasses. There was a bunch of $1 stuff - and under $1 too, but I need to buy things that I think I will actually use.
I got these four books for $1.
The most fun one is the book on how to make sock toys. Who knew you could make a sock bunny, kitty, teddy bear, polar bear, donkey .. and it goes on and on. There are 50 toys to make in this book.
A favorite book from when I was young. My favorite poem in this book is "Disobedience". What does that say about me?
I got this one so that my OD could read Curious George to the boys in French.
She spent almost a year in France and hopefully will enjoy this.
What's not to like about this? Maurice Sendak and all. Another book to read to the boys.
These cost $.25. I thought they would work as chip clips, but they aren't strong enough. They are pretty though.
A pretty good haul and it won't take up too much space.
