This weekend I drove 10 miles to an old woman's house that promised a 42 year clean out and plenty of vintage items in her yard sale ad. At $4.19 a gallon for gas, I usually don't drive that far for a yard sale, but the ad intrigued me. Her clean out consisted of some old roller skates, hats, an air cleaner, and a deflated basket ball for $5. When I refused to buy my son a $5 deflated basketball he threw a temper tantrum, kicked her table and we left, but then I noticed her neighbor was having a yard sale, and I found this vintage train case. I bought it for the kids to put toys in, but now I may keep it for myself. Should I cover it with fabric, or keep it as is?
It still has the mirror in good condition. We bought a few other miscellaneous items-Bat Girl:
This is Bat Girl and not Cat Woman, right? Doesn't she look like someone just kicked her in the behind?
Fabric tape; I don't know if it's vintage and I honestly don't know how you can tell what fabric/ribbon is vintage, unless it looks really old and smells like mold.
I felt like we were in a groove, so I decided to take my chances with the resale shop on the way home - the one that has lots of little china pieces sitting on the edges of tables. So I had to threaten my kids the entire time and then they BOTH had to go to the bathroom, and not #1...so I had to stand by this tiny bathroom in a room full of china while each child did the deed. Sorry. We did find some things, and the little old ladies who worked there were very kind, but I doubt I will go back with my kids.
The condition of this book is not that good, but I bought it for the images to use in a project. Now, I don't know if I can cut it.
I love this illustration; dogs and cats, mice and cheese...all living in perfect harmony. Maybe this could be the new logo for the upcoming election? I hope you enjoyed your weekend.
