I am not a teddy bear collector, but I just cannot leave a Boyds Bear when I find one. I know this sweet little gal mst have cost at least $50.00 on QVC, so I snapped her up when I saw her $1.00 price tag. She is really sweet with her corduroy dress, tweed coat and matching hat. She's big too - about 15" tall sitting down.
This is a fabulous handcarved, hand painted and signed Santa from the Ukraine. He is spectacular! He was only $1.00. If he's worth a mint, he'll be ebay bound. But, I do collect Santas, and I don't have one like this, so don't hold me to that comment!
This set of Paint By Number Kittens are from a Church Sale and were 25¢ each. I also got the three community cookbooksfor 10¢ each. That little blurry thing in the corner is some sort of frutti tooti purse/backpack bangle jangle thingamabob (Not the acutal name!) with charms on it -a clump of cherries, a heart and a four leaf clover. Thought I could repurpose it for crafting for only 10¢.
I found this great old metal table for $3.00. It had pink hightlighter on it, but with the help of my friends Mr. Clean and Mr. Clorox, it's good as old again. That spot on the second shelf is where the highlighter was - it's just wet in that photo.
Not sure why I had to buy this Panda Bear. He was only 10¢ and he spoke to me. "Take me home", he said. He's older - early 1970's and in pristine condition. He has leather eyes and a leather nose. I will ebay him if it's worth it, otherwise, our library uses stuffed animals for display so I will donate him there.
White Pottery found at the Salvation Army (which is a miracle within itself, as I never find anything OLD there!) for $2.00. I am not an especially religious person, but I liked this old white planter and it will fit well into my collection.
And, finally, the last stop of the day netted this lovely vintage tablecloth for $1.00. It's in very good condition and I was very happy to have found it. It's sort of any everyday tablecloth as most of mine are more seasonal or holiday themed.
Tomorrow we are going to a Tractor Pull. Going to a Tractor Pull can really make you feel young and beautiful as pretty much everyone is minus a tooth or two, spits tobacco (*the women too) and wears overalls. But, it is good old fashioned family fun, it is free and it is a laugh a minute. Hooo-Weee, we're gunna have Fun! You KNOW I'll take photos, right?
