Three boxes of sealing wax and two wax seal stamps - $2.00.
I was very excited to find this, but once I got it home and peeled all the making tape off the box, I discovered a Fleur de le stamp and an "S" stamp. Sadly, I don't think these are Girl Scout related. Oh, well, "S" is my first and last initial so I guess I'll be doing some wax sealing on my mail.
The Congress Cards on the top are dated 1917 and come double boxed. Isn't it interesting how important a luxury item like a deck of cards was back in the day? Now you can by a deck of cards 2/$1.00 at the check-out of any grocery store.
These were bundled with some newer cards at the Super Cheap Thrift. There wasn't a price on it and they have a very strict new policy - "NO TAG, NO SALE". But, I took a chance. Guess what I found out? Greeting cards are FREE. Yipppee.The lanterns on the card on the left are all glittery and sparkly and the little angel babies on the card on the right are just freaking adorable. I got ten cards in all. If you get a birthday card from me, it will be vintage!
I went to one yard Sale this morning on the way home from school. I only had a five dollar bill, so I had to shop wisely. I spotted three gallon size bags chock full of rubber stamps priced at $2.00 each. I grabbed the two biggest bags and left the smaller bag. I also got a belt buckle, a vintage chick with an egg (too cute), a coin purse, a tiny bunny in a basket and a Tyson chicken paperweight for a total of $4.80. I went home and dumped the stamps out on the floor and started grouping them. There were three different alphabet stamps, but I didn't have a complete set of any of them. I was getting discouraged, thinking that I had just throw out $4.00, but then I remembered the other bag of stamps. I ran in and stole, er, borrowed, eight quarters from DS's stash and went back to grab the other bag. Thank goodness it's a small town. And, yes, I now have three complete sets of alphabet stamps and a lot more. 251 rubber stamps in all. I will list them all as one "You get what you see" lot and stuff them in a Flat Rate Box. I (heart) those boxes.
