If you've known me for a while, you know I love vintage items, especially toys and games. Lately, I've been looking for old game pieces to use for journaling and creating ATCs. Today luck was on my side.
This was a shocker. A 1961 Monopoly game - complete! I bought it for $2.00 totally expecting to finds bits and pieces. What a surprise to find this 50 year old game all there in great shape.
How about a 30 year old Bingo Game? For $2.00, I got it all!
Ironically, I just started looking at the prices for these Bingo games for future birthday parties for the kids.
I just have to be careful not to be tempted to use the cards for scrapbooking!
This was a fun find for the kids, who love doctor's kits. A 1977 complete kit for $5.00.
After washing it all down with Clorox wipes, Nic's already used it on his "Tom" (Tom and Jerry) stuffed cat.
Remember Parchessi? We played this a lot growing up. Again, this game has never been used - $2.00
I never saw this game before, but the picture of the man on the box looks like an actor from the 60s-70s. I opened it up and it's completely still in its original wrap. Never even opened after all these years $2.00
The rain's coming down, I'm fighting a lingering cold, and some idiot with a cellphone stuck to his face almost caused a head-on collision with me this morning. No exaggeration, he was on MY side of the road, right in front of me, coming right at me. I turned on my high beams, he kept coming. I completely stopped the car, he kept coming. I tried to veer off the side into the woods, and still he was coming right at me. At about 4 car lengths, I just laid on the horn until he swerved away from me. It was so bad, I thought it HAD to have been a man having a heart attack while driving. I looked over as he passed me, only to see him glaring at ME with this look of disgust, one hand on the wheel, one hand on the side of his face. You know what I would have liked to do with that phone.
People may tell you therapy shopping is bad. Don't you believe them! I was really shaken up and couldn't get it out of my head; I just kept replaying it over and over. Then I spotted these fun games, at super prices, and was able to get the memory of this creep out of my mind.
