Lordy woman, is there any more?? You must have SOOO much stuff!

Zootsuitmama said...

Ha ha! yes...I do. Old age got me something!

Love these goodies. I loved going to the Dime Store and shopping when I was a girl. Brings back such memories!

I love the Giligan's Island font on that treasure finder box! Something about stuff still in the original packaging, it gets my attention all the time! What does the little chef thingy do? He's too cute!

You're right Amber, I knew I'd seen that font somewhere! Ha! The chef thing is Mother's Kitchen's Frankie's wife...I think it holds a notepad, grocery list...Thanks Linda! There is something about that era when my Dad would give me 50 cents and I would spend an hour trying to decide how to spend it at the Dime Store!
