...which is more disturbing?

I can't decide which part of this equation is more disturbing... The fact that somebody had a stack of FOUR Twister mats (no boxes, no dials) for sale at their YARD SALE...



~OR~...the fact that THREE of them came home with me?!?! But, but... at 25¢ each, they'd be cheap drop clothes, or fun picnic table covers, or, or...

The same sale that produced Twister, produced a PLETHORA of retro goodies...


Dripmor teapot ($3), California Pottery ashtray (10¢), Retro Ceramic 'shroom (10¢), Cool lime ice bucket (25¢)

I also sorted out a STACK of vintage books with FUN!! Graphics - not in the best of condition, but at 10¢ each, how could I go wrong?!


Total for the stop was $7.75 - so at these prices, you can imagine the load I came home with... Guess I better 'step-up' my efforts towards 'Purge Challenge'!!!!

I just saw somewhere (country living?) that a woman made a tote bag out of a twister mat - if you're looking for something to do with your treasure trove of them! Love that yellow teapot.
