Roadtrip...Demented Toy Parts!!!

On the road again...singing that song!

We've been trying for two months to take a road trip and on Friday we finally made it! My friend, Jackie, loves thrift shops and flea markets and the do I! So on August 7 we hit the road for Temecula, CA. We started at La Maison Rustique Barn Sale. I found doll heads. I'm so excited! Just what I've been trying to find. Jack found a tin tile to use for a journal cover. Great treasures.

After spending about an hour and a half shopping and visiting, and with our tresures in hand, we were off to Escondido. Our next stop was lunch and a quick burger.

Then we headed for the AmVet's Thrift Store. It was huge!!! If this is heaven....then we've arrived! Jack spotted a vintage crinoline, I found a childs doll stuffing toy, we looked at books, gadgets, and toys. Jack found a wheel chair (no not that kind!), a childs toy! I found another doll and some porcelain knobs (great for feet on box projects). We scored!!!

My stuffing machine!

Next stop was another smaller, thrift store and then a little antique junque shop. Winding down the day, we decided it was time to head for home. We had a great time and we'll try again another day for some more treasures. They're out there....just waiting for us!!!
NOTE: Stay tuned to see what we make with our parts!
