Score!!!

Went to a local flea market a couple days ago and found all this..........


And in more detail.....
Five (5!) boxes full of DMC floss!  Two of the boxes of floss are not marked with any numbers, so I'm assuming they are DMC.  There are also a few Marlitt and J&P Coats flosses in there too.

Next is.........
A double sided Plano box (probably a tackle box) FULL of DMC floss wound on the larger plastic bobbins!  There was also a small pair of stork scissors, a project ring, and about 20 unused plastic bobbins.

And next is.....
A Cottage Garden box that matches a couple others I have.  Originally, these are about $30 and I got this one for $8!

And lastly.....

Two afghan books.   Vanna's is all crochet and the Herrschners is mostly crochet, with a couple knit.  Originally, these are between $25 and $30 brand new and I got them for $2 each!!  Woo hoo!

I got good deals on all of this for a total of around $50.  And had SO much fun doing it!  When I found all of this, a few other things I had picked out were put back on the shelf!  :-)

I'll be back in a couple days with a couple finishes!!

All in all, a great labor day weekend!
