But! There I was, and they were having a sidewalk sale out front, with grab bags for two bucks. So of course I bought one. Two bucks? I'm in!
Here is the Bag of Mystery, before opening:
I stuck my foot in there for size reference.
Look at all the stuff they crammed into that bag!
First off, please to notice Miss Itty Bitty, to the left of the pic. She is still gracing my presence! If I could just get her to stop biting my hands when I pet her ... Now, on to the grab bag:
There's a Christmas garland thing-y, which is perfect, because I STILL have some Christmas crap out in the garage which has not yet made it up to the attic; some artificial flowers; some kids' foam animal hats, which of COURSE I had to wear around the house last night; some unbelievably fantastic wind-up toys, which I was not able to get a good photo of last night, but I'll keep trying, I promise; COBRAS HATCHING FROM EGGS, not one but TWO!; let's see, some stickers, and rhinestones, and an expanding dinosaur, and also some, well, less explicable stuff:
I do not know what "Rexlace" is, but I've got a hundred purple yards of it. If anybody wants it, or heck, if anybody knows what it IS, please let me know. It's some kind of vinyl cord, and that's about all I can tell ya. (Look! To the left of the Rexlace! It's one of the cobras! Coooooooool.)
Gee, I wonder why Paula Deen ended up in the grab bag?
Those are wax candle melt thingies. Hm. I wonder why fake frying pans filled with fake butter and stamped "Paula Deen" didn't sell?
Okay, this next thing had me mystified at first. Some kind of snow globe ...
OH MY GOD! SANTA! WHAT DID THEY DO TO YOU?!
A disembodied Santa head snowglobe. With RED snow, like blood drifting down. That's so wrong it's just about perfect.
So! An evening's worth of entertainment for two bucks. And hell, I predict some of this stuff will be tickling me for quite a while.
I think I'll go back to Michael's tonight and see if they've got any grab bags left.
