First up, the one I couldn't contain. I was so excited about finding a dusty La Cloche at a desolate (and a bit depressing) roadside yard sale, I immediately called fellow thrifting enthusiast, Monica. Happily, her response was just what I wanted to hear: enthusiasm and excitement! Price = $4
Then there is this little gem. It wasn't a huge bargain because the front side is missing, there is no furniture, and it was still $2. But Pack Rat (that's me!) had some vintage Little People furniture from my own circa 1978 toys, and now it's a properly furnished little cabin.
A couple good books (25¢ each) and a crayon tin ($1) were good finds. I found more good books at that price (bunch of Eric Carle), but we have copies so I'm sending the loot on to some friends.
And how about these beauties? I don't know if they are cut or complete or what, but at 50¢, I thought the pictures alone were more than worth it.
Take a closer look.

He also scored this gorgeous double sided chalkboard headed for the dumpster. This will be going down in the basement as well, in the lounge/library/play room (whatever we're calling that casual kid zone. Lastly, he grabbed a HUGE paper cutter. I didn't photograph it, and it is a little inky blotchy and ugly, but it has been called in to service already and performed like a champ. Great grab!
Grand Total: $8.50. Rather grand, pretty thrifty, I think.
