Such a happy shopping day....again

This was, far and away, my best find of the day for my dd. I found it in the very first store I went to, and because I was unsure if it was truly a power ranger I had to google the word Bandai to make sure that was the company who makes power rangers. And I scored! He's probably not complete but that's o.k. considering the cost of these crazy toys! Anyone else have a little girl who loves boys toys? She won't play with a doll, that much I know!
Once again the shabby shopping mojo was with me.
~cute baby shoes, darling embroidered linen, victorian box~

It said "as is" on this box, "as if" that was a problem..;)
Yummy shabby inside, just the way I like them.

Aren't they cute together?

Over -the-top sweet linen, love the border and that basket is on both ends....perfection.

A sassy-in-yellow clip hanger.

Another one that's a little more plain Jane, but I love the older clips on these.

Don't need to explain the wonderful-ness of these beauties.

I die for these....4 of them.

A darling illustrated dictionary for children.

Awesome business ledger.

A peek inside.

Antique dictionary with paper thin pages (like tissue paper)
illustrated, I might add.

These pressed beauties were a happy surprise.

Amazing old oak file drawer with fab hardware.

I added my metal top file cards that I've had for some time. I think they like each other.

Beautiful roll of wallpaper.

OK, I guess I guess I need to come down there and follow you around for a few days. You are hitting a great streak. Love the oak file drawer.

Thanks Gail for sharing! And for stopping by to comment - I loved all that you said. What a lucky, lucky little girl you have to have you as a mum!

Oh, and I had that EXACT dictionary as a little girl and I loved it. Actually, I think it was a hand-me-down from my older people still do hand-me-downs? I remember the older neighbor girls giving us girls their old clothes right before school and oh, happy day when I was big enough to wear "big girl clothes"!

Big hug

Fabulous treasures!!! Lucky you!!

Wowza, great finds! I would have bought those same things, except maybe the toy. I have boys, long grown, but if it had been vintage Legos you can bet I would have bought them!
