Price is Right: Game 12

Come join the fun! The more, the merrier!
The Game: I show you my thrift haul from one recent outing. You leave a comment with your best guess as to how much I paid. This does include VA sales tax. The person who comes closest WITHOUT going over wins.
The Rules: One clear and definitive guess per person- no amending your answer. Please do not choose the same answer as a person who came before you- read the comments prior to leaving your guess. Game runs through Tuesday the 24th, 5pm EST and is open to US and international players. The receipt and winner will be posted here: please be sure I know how to get in touch with you either through blog, website or email. Play nice and have fun!!
The Prize: The satisfaction of winning, AND $5 in "soso bucks" that can be applied toward any purchase in either of my shops. Can be saved and spent at a later time, up to one year. Can be combined with other wins or offers. Not redeemable for cash. Non-transferable.
The Stuff: This time the loot comes from my favorite thrift shop, non-sale day.  Prices here are relatively high for sheets and larger breakables.  Relatively low for small items.  They do not seem to charge more for *vintage*.  Here's what I walked out with this week:

 Chevron bedsheet
 pansy bath towel
 hand towel
 3 pillowcases
 Vera napkins
 More Vera napkins
 Large yellow enamelware Georges Briard pot
 These were all sold separately.  Japan donkey, Garfield small planter, box of curtain tieback pins, box of pink Gibson notecards, vintage Old Maid card game, handpainted diaper pin set
 This was sold together in one of those famous bags.  Yes, I DID buy it for the FOXY patch.
A dozen "woven" plastic napkin rings
There you have it, folks!  A nice haul of goodies if I do say so myself.  Let the game begin!

What a fun game!
Well, i have no idea what prices are like in the US thrift shops, so all I can do is have a rough guess based on what I would expect to pay here fro similar items, which is probably way over!
So I'll play high and say $33.00!
