We are enjoying a visit from friends who love to browse flea markets and thrift stores. This is the only time my husband and daughter will go to those types of stores with me. I always see a lot of things I want, but I have to pass them by. Here are some of today’s Ones That Got Away.
It seems Johnny Lion was a series by Edith Thacher Hurd.
I loved reading Dennis in the Sunday comics. I am sure I read more than a few of his comic collections too.
This was one I really wanted. The book was $8 and the dust jacket was badly torn…but I still hope to become a circus clown one day when I grow up.
My husband pointed out the Gumby book. He had to quote Eddie Murphy’s Gumby from Saturday Night Live,
I’m Gumby, dammit!
My friend and I saw a vintage Paddington Bear stuffed animal too.
I might be wrong, but I think I had this Little Golden Book.
You know I’m a sucker for Sesame Street.
I wanted every book in this booth!
I think if I had to pick, I’d get Here, Kitty. So cute!
But the star of the day want a book–I know, it’s shocking. I finally found a vintage ceramic Christmas tree!!!!!!!!!
