Yardsale Buys from last Saturday

Here are a few pics of stuff I bought last Saturday. One of the sellers I bought stuff from reads this blog from time to time, so I figured I'd show some of her former stuff in use. The vintage white handled curling iron was .50 and I have it displayed in my bathroom with others I have (one of which belonged to my mom). Also bought the rolling storage kid transportation device for $2.

Yes, those are red shoes for girls in the pic above. No, I won't make Jacob wear them (not his size anyway....). The brand name is Born and they are going up on ebay. They were $2 (a little "pricy" but I think they will sell for decent money).

Inside the wooden box is a bunch of Betty Crocker recipe cards from 1971 ($1 for the wooden box with the cards). Wow - what were they thinking when they photographed some of that food - really ickky looking. There is a website that is devoted to ugly pics of food that has appeared on these cards Ugly Food Website

When I saw the first picture I thought, "Did the kid come free with the box or was he extra?" ;)

Yes, Born shoes are verrry expensive. Sturdy and nice, though, so definitely worth it to buy a pair on eBay. Good luck selling them.

I love the box thingy with the handles. I love Susanna's comment about the kid coming free with the box.

I love how you are displaying your curling irons. My grandmother gave some to me before she passed away. I love those things.
