I am literally speechless. :-) What DEALS! I remember this from last year...and remember being more than a little jealous then, too, lol! You got SERIOUSLY good stuff...that chair alone is rocking my world...and I'm totally excited your daughter got to add to her vintage Barbie collection. Yay!

oh my GOSH! Why can't I find a church sale like that? I had that barbie camper until about 10 years ago...I finally let it go. I'd had it since 1972! I had to learn my multiplication tables before my mom would buy it! I still remmeber that smell it had....and the little sleeping bags and camp stools! Oh how I loved and played with that thing!
Have a great week!

Oh boy!! I used to have that yellow Barbie camper!! My mom gave away all of my Barbie stuff when I was in high school...without asking me. I still haven't forgiven her!! Gosh..such memories....

Wow, what deals! I just happened upon your blog somehow and was shocked & surprised to see that canning book you bought so cheaply. I have it, love it, and used it recently after owning it several years!In fact, I blogged a little about our tomato canning experience over the weekend and showed a picture of this very book (which is out of print by the way). What a nice blog you have. I'll return! -Tammy

Ah, the wonderful annual church sale! Almost too good to be true. What did become of sales like this? Now I seem to wander around to icky sales with high priced nothing-I-want-stuff. You hit the jackpot girl!
