Scrapbook Garage Sale Haul

I have mentioned in my last couple of posts about the great bargains I found at the Clipper Street Scrapbook Garage Sale. I grabbed a ton of  12x12 patterned paper @ 12 sheets for a dollar and a bunch of odds and sods that I thought I would share with you today.
First up was Christmas in July!  I got 3 lengths of these yummy black velvet, Xmas ornaments. for a dollar. They are already adhesive backed.  I plan to fussy cut them out for cards. Beside them is a package of black and white journalling cards and words etc, also a dollar.
Next up are some cute Xmas stamps...sorry about the glare but I wanted you to see the prices. I fell in love with that first whimsical Stampendous Snowman and sentiment for $1.50
Merry and Bright from Imaginesce was only 25 cents and although I probably paid too much for Kissy Kissy (one dollar), that cute little reindeer just jumped into my basket!.
 Little Miss C will be gong into Grade One and Mr P will be in preschool each day. I couldn't resist these printing alphas for 10 cents. The school days tablet of journal cards and the little boy book of tickets were a dollar each.
The Spook Alley words were 25 cents, the Mellissa Frances vintage, ivory resin shapes were 50 cents. The shabby chi,c flat sheen, hinge stickers as well as the glittery flowers were only 10 cents.
The little leaf branch punch was a dollar, the kaiser tag book 25 cents, the chipboard travel accents one dollar,  and the lilac and green sewn edging and the matching tag beside it, were 25 cents.
My final treasures were these glassine bags. Fifty of the smaller bags were 50 cents, and a hundred of the larger size were one dollar. They are for my oldest daughter, Glamour Girl. She will use them for her handmade jewelry. The small ones should be perfect for earrings, and the larger size for bracelets or necklaces.

Great haul, Mo, I love the snowman stamp, what a deal! Thanks for your kind comment on my hexagon card. I think someone does make a hex die with different sizes, I saw Virginia from Yes, Virginia blog showing some cards with it last month, not sure of the maker though. Barb
