Friday morning was sunny, but brisk.
First stop, first purchase (.25¢). It was going to be a good day! (VERA 2010 #10)
Later stop, $1. (2010 #8). I already have an identical set, except they are souvenirs for 'NORTH BAY' instead of 'WESTPORT' - anybody else out there ever come across any other examples of these??
Just so that you don't think that I have COMPLETELY given up on buying anything else (though I have been trying to pull in the reigns tighter lately!), here are a 'few' of my other 'picks-of-the-week'...
For anyone that is sick of VERA, you may just want to quit reading this blog, because her presence isn't going away any time soon, and I won't apologize for it. When you find something/someone that inspires you ~ go with it!
As for the 'GOAT NODDER'... he looks older to me, but I really don't know. Mexican? Italian? Day of the Dead? Some kind of folklore? Cheap-o souvenir? He has stolen my heart, whatever his story!! If ANYBODY has any history/info I would love to know, so PLEASE - Spill the beans!!!! I will be forever greatful!
