Today was a community-wide sale at a huge park down the road. One of my first stops had quite a bit of vintage stuff. The homeowner said he has a booth at a local antique store.
"Are you sure?", I asked.
"Yeah", he said. "I have 2 more boxes somewhere. I'll give those to you also."
What did he just say? He'll give me three boxes of vintage vocabulary cards? For free? Whoa!
This box contains about 1000 cards with a word on the front plus an example of it used in a sentence. On the back is the definition. They are kinda cool for all kinds of projects.
For an example, look at this cute idea from the October 3rd post on Itsy Bits and Pieces.
I waited around a while, but the kind man never found the other two boxes. I told him I'd stop back by after I browsed the other sales in the neighborhood. About thirty minutes later I checked, but he still had not found them. He took my number and said he'd call if he found them.
Well, I figured that was that, but, later that afternoon I got a call from him. They are found and they are mine! His sale was still going on, so I told him I'd be right there!
How exciting is that?
By the way, did I mention they were FREE!
