Saturday rummage saling

It's church rummage sale season again, and one of our favourite annual sales was this morning. This year they did not price the items but asked for a small donation instead.

I brought home two vintage Christmas magazines, fourteen French-Impressionist postcards, and two craft kits which, to me, are just a good source of embroidery floss, fabric, and other odds and ends. It looks like quite a haul when you spread it out.

The 1977 Christmas Helps magazine contains the usual frightening array of weird '70's crafts and fashion. "Dear Aunt Bessie, thank you for sewing me that lovely jumper made like a giant ladybug." However, it's set up in a countdown-to-Christmas style that I'm thinking might inspire some blog posts here in the weeks to come. Stay tuned.
