The 6 year old grandson really, really wanted to go to the oppy today and who am I to say no to that? ha ha,
so I get to oppy and I went and looked in the book section and grabbed a couple oldies then over to the jewellery section where lady said something about liking antique things and I said I also love old vintage items well she said "did you see the Enid Blyton books?" I say no where? she says "over in book case" well I raced over no books and she says" oh here they are in the box 50c each or the lady will most like go cheaper if you take them all!"
Enid Blyton + me = happy, happy Nelly.I read all of her books as a kid all Famous Five and Secret Seven and of course the faraway tree and Laura read Mt Twiddle and Naughty Amelia Jane over and over and over again as a kid.
I just upnpacked to see what else was in the box and here they all are including a couple from L.M Montgomery of Anne of Green Gables fame 1954 plus a few I have never hear of but are old.4 Nancy Drew mysteries from 1974 Many are from the same girl Jaqui Orm.There is also a Winnie the Pooh from 1970 and a girls annual.Pretty good day dont ya think?
Then Gson says can we go to one more?Well could I say no?No!! that would just be mean to deprive him dont you agree? so we went to 2 more.1st one got some bits to make master 6 smile and the last one got me a male mannequin even tho they are only the new style half mannequins they will come in handy for me to show things at markets.
I also got this lovely faux fur jacket there are no labels but the hooks and eyes are the old ones.Its in great condition was $8.
Master 6 got this cute hat for 50c
and I got this pile of doileys for $1 which I shall turn into buntings (I cant cut them tho so will fold in half and hand sew to ribbon,Yes I am strange as I dont want to do too much damage in case I want to reuse later down the track.
and baby knitting books
this is one from when I was a kid and these booties were the 1st thing I ever knitted and followed a pattern in when I was about 13.I have made alot of these over the years.
Oh and a lovely leather bound address book for 50c
