TAKE ME TO CHURCH
Aunt Joyce and I met my co-worker Cindy at the St. John's festival - really to go to the new to you sale. I got some good stuff… a tape measure for my purse and a book for one of the residents of the story we did for our first book club… a 1969 Game of Pittsburgh… a little coin purse, a wax mold and a flower candle holder…
I've really been into tin things lately… I passed on a little toolbox since I have quite a few but did get these guys. Old first aid kit (which the dad had to point out that we had two downstairs.) I don't care - this was a little older and it still smells like bandaids.
Also this microscope case… which I later saw had the parts inside - complete with shrimp eggs. I just liked the tin so the inside stuff was a bonus.
I still feel bad because I kind of took this from Aunt Joyce - she saw it first.
Yes. It's a shoe trying on bench. I don't know what to call it! She couldn't decide if she wanted it or not and I didn't want anyone else to get it (though I don't think anyone really wanted it) - Take a look at this beauty. 15 bucks. Heavy as hell. I carried it through the church grounds to the car while it was raining. People wouldn't even get out of my way. Rude Catholics.
This may be my favorite thing. A little key fob holder thing - complete with keys which also includes a key to heaven (wonder if it works) and a couple religious medals. I do a drama club at work. After, I've been doing an exercise with vintage photos - everyone kind of talks out what's going on in the picture and then we read the story that was created with all their thoughts - sometimes it makes sense - sometimes it's just wacky but it gets them thinking and I think this would be good - something to pass around and touch - what are the keys for ? Who did they belong to? What's inside the thing that the key opens? Not bad for 25 cents.
