$3 goes far

$1.49 hobnail divided plate

I left this behind on Saturday so was glad to see it still there today. It matches my other hobnalian stuff and will be great for those romantic dinners with appetizers my husband and I never have.

.29 vase
.29 Avon lotion holder

Facebook tells me vintage Avon stuff is highly collectible; even when used. I nabbed the vase because the last time I passed up a small cute vase eBay called me foolish at 2am.

.29 each Carolyn Carpin angel bears

These are about four inches tall. I didn't look too closely in store and assumed they were leftover Christmas decor. When was the last time you saw such dour holiday stuff though? The more I look at them the more I think these are the kinds of keepsakes you hand off when someone's pet passes away.


In more cheerful news I am ready to start eBaying again. I am going to pull out Ye Olde Laptop and start photographing tomorrow.
I'm sharing over at We Call it Junkin'

You sure got some great deals! My daughter loves those Avon bottles, she has a nice one that's a horse. I think the teddy bear thing was just really popular back in the 80s, and a lot of ladies collected them. I went to an estate sale where one whole bedroom was FULL of teddy bear stuff. Thanks so much for sharing this at my History & Home Link Party. Hope to see you again on Tuesday. Take care - Dawn @ We Call It
