Saturday morning was rainy, so the only yard sales were indoor ones. We stopped at two church sales and found some cool vintage stuff: electric scissors and a pair of '70's broadcasting-style headphones (Mr. Fixit), a '50's Snowflake-pattern casserole with an aluminum lid and some '70's craft magazines (Mama Squirrel), a Christmas-green pillowcase with hand-knitted edging, and a bunch of mid-century kids' paperbacks, mostly Puffins.
The Family from One End Street (we did have a copy of this, but sold it awhile back)
The Little Grey Men by 'BB'
The Fair to Middling
Snow Cloud Stallion
The Young Detectives
The Story of the Amulet
Lad: A Dog, a fairly worn 1940's Pocket Book edition
Two Against the North, by Farley Mowat, Scholastic T145
P.S. See the McCall's Crafts magazine, with the rag doll with glasses on the cover? My mom had a copy of this in 1976, and I always wanted one of those dolls. Maybe I'll collect up the materials to make myself one. It's only been thirty-six years.
