I "rescued" this packet of letters. They were from a German penpal in the early 1950's. The photos are of the girl, her mother, and a scene from her town in southern Germany. ($3.75)
These are contemporary paper-crafted cards. Nine for $3.75 is a good deal.
I bought a stack of Ideals magazines (.50 each). These will be the topic of my next Zion-Benton News column. (Writing it is on my to-do list this week.)
I confess that I have Corningware and I use it. I've had the large pan (on the left) for 30+ years and it's pretty scratched-up. Estate-sale purchase on the right -- just $3.75 (reduced from $15). With lid.
P.S. As I was checking out my first purchases Mrs. S, the estate sale company owner, was on the phone with one of the heirs explaining patiently but firmly that the contract clearly stated that prices would be reduced each day of the sale. By the third day when items were actually 75% off Mrs. S said that it took the persuasion of a friend of the heirs to come to that agreement -- that and realizing how much stuff would be left over that the heirs would pay Mrs. S to have hauled away. Mrs. S chuckled at one purchase: a 1990's-era Toyota for $500. The guy who bought it drove it away (after jump-starting it). He rolled down the window and the envelope with the signed title blew out and was lost. The heirs were not happy knowing they had to go to the DMV to get a replacement title.
