Rummaging - $1 finds

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.

I saw the sock toys book and shuddered...after my experience with the monkey - lets just not go there.

Great finds for a buck. I've been doing some buying as well...really must get a post up!

Who knew curious George was just Georges in French? In Danish he is Peter or something but not George. I like Chicken Soup with Rice, too.
Happy Once Happy twice Happy chicken soup with rice.
