It's the end of the season and the yard sales are drying up. But as a last hurrah! Pultneyville, NY puts on a community yard sale in mid-September, and that's where my junking buddies and I went this past weekend.
The free boxes were great! I got a book of New Yorker cat cartoons and a tiny book of walking tours of Scotland with gorgeous photography. At one sale, they had copies of Mad Magazine for a dime each. I bought two (with Harry Potter spoofs) and now I wish I'd bought every copy. I haven't laughed so hard in years. (I'm getting a subscription!)
One of my purchases was just for fun. These little quilted cubes. Aren't they cute?
I'd say that the above picture is about the actual size of the tiny, hand-stitched cubes. I'm going to hang them on my Christmas tree this December.
They came with a little cross stitched draw-string bag.
This picture is smaller than the actual size of the bag -- but not by much. It, too, will find its way to my Christmas tree this year. And the price for these three handmade items? Twenty-five cents. Some people just don't value hand-made items.
But aren't they darling?
