Thursday's Treasure

 It's rare that I walk out of a thrift store with just one thing.  I usually leave with several items or none at all.  But, the other day, this precious wooden duck was the only treasure worth standing in line over.
And look!  When you pull her string, she flaps her arms and legs!  She's an Alfred Mertens Pfullingen design from 1967.  Absolutely adorable colors and expression.
And woo!  On a different day, I spied these Vera Neumann vinyl placemats in with the holiday gear.  These can sell for as much as $10 per mat.  Guess how many I got for $2.99??   Leave a comment with your guess and I'll be back to share the answer tonight!
Have you found any treasures lately?  I'd love to hear about them :)

My guess would be 4....they are lovely!

Jennie said...

Nine!!! I got NINE!!! I need to clean them up well, and then we'll see how they do. I am thinking of setting up a listing for $10 for one and letting people choose their quantity. Good idea?
