|A dramatically slimming Ariel Clark with my pretty German tablecloth.|
|Didn't buy this Red Ryder lead toy set (with Hopalong Cassidy pix included).|
Also scored three (3!) old-style fountain pens (with two ballpoint pens) for $7, all of them new. Now I must find ink and an inkwell for the pens. Picked up a 1946 Argus flash unit for one of my cameras ($1), a new-in-package electronic mouse for my laptop ($1), a new pair of very sharp hair-thinning sheers ($1, Leah cuts my hair), a lighthouse wire sculpture ($1), three Women's Heart Awareness Month pins (25 cents), a red ribbon (25 cents) which I gave Ariel, and two pairs of pretty nice earrings (new) for $1 each. Leah gets those.
Nice haul, I'd say.
Oh, and on the way out, I got to see a near fist-fight between one of the ticket-takers and a guy who kept abusing the rules. The Happy's guy told him he was banned from ever coming back. The rule-breaker swore, "I'll be back." Hope I'm there when he is.
