and since you are wondering what we came away with...
We found a boatload of children's books (most are Sesame Street - a current favorite of our little guy). A few cookbooks and misc ones are in there too. I have to admit I'm a bit of a book-o-holic. "My name is Christy, and I am addicted to buying cheap books!"
We also found these two oldies. One is a home economics text book from the 1920s/30s. The other is a 1926 edition of Washington Irving's Sketch Book. Both are in pretty great shape for $1 a piece!
We love to snap up vintage toys too (we put them away for when they are age appropriate for Little Guy). I found the Lincoln Logs for $4 and Dan found the Peanuts View Finder (with a bunch of reels from the 70's) for $7. We were very excited about both of these discoveries.
THEN, I came across what was maybe my favorite find of the day. Some vintage fabric pieces in all these wonderful prints. Aren't they fun? I'm no pro, but I think the teal one with little flowers is feed sack. Not sure how to tell, so I'm going to hold on to that one until I can figure it out. The rest will be incorporated into some future project as yet unknown.
So, weren't we Lucky? What a fun FUN day (even if we did get bogged down in big ruts of fresh mud - Note that an "all terrain stroller" is not always so "all terrain").
