Show and Tell Again...

I know, I know, I've been a bad little girl and not keeping up lately! WELL..... among the end of the school year activities, VBS (Yay! it's this week!), a swap, kids library camp, kids with unexplained symptoms/sickness, and a little treasure hunting are what was and IS happening around my neck of the woods...

Heidi (Birds of a Feather) is hostess of " Show and Tell Sunday" this week and it's all about Flea Market Finds! Well, in my quest for cornstarch and (yes, you read right- cornstarch for VBS this week. LOTS and LOTS of cornstarch... 50 boxes to be exact!). Anyways- I HAD to stop by the Estate Sale on my way to the store, and I happened upon a Flea Market on my way to the other store. ;) Here's what I found... (And by clicking on Heidi's link, she has a list of S & T Sunday participants)

Vintage Journal/Record Book- 75 cents ( I have never been able to find one of these unless it was on Ebay or in an antique store for a WHOLE lot more) Most of the used pages had been cut out, unfortunately, but that's okay- there was plenty of blanks to use!

Vintage Baby Thank Yous- 75 cents for 8 w/envelopes

Vintage Children's Books- 25 cents each

Vintage Piano Books Lot of 8- $20 (Truly- I can't believe I happened upon this one)

Here's a few from past outings...

Vintage Cabinet Photos $2-$3 each

Vintage 1940's typewriter- $22 Works great!

Vintage Playing Cards- 25 cents to $1 each

Vintage 1902 Sears Catalog- $3 (Another truly amazing deal I couldn't believe!)

Wish I could find a handful of these hat pins!

Vintage Crown Brooch- $3

Pretty Pink Towl- $1

Diamonds in the rough, I say.... I love a cheap treasure! Thanks for stopping by. I have soooooo much more to share with you! Stay tuned this week... But I must be off to the church again for VBS. I will visit everyone later! ;)

What a haul! Are you sure you want that creaky old typewriter - I'd be glad to take it off your hands. You absolutely find the most incredible buys! I'm so envious of that journal - unbelievable. Cornstarch? HMMM. Are you a mad scientist or a detective? Have fun at Bible School and yes you owe your readers a few posts! Hugs, Nancy
