vintage finds! oh my!

WOWWIE! so i found a local girl on craiglist who was selling some vintage patterns (dirt cheap by the way... only $2! holy crap! right?) so anyhow, i met her on the other side of town to make the exchange and came up on an estate sale where I found 2 original McCalls magazines in great condition for $1.

I came home so excited!! I have already peeked around the magazines (which are in great condition) and couldnt help but laugh at how much life and the world have changed. The pictures are inspiring and the articles are amusing.

Check out my awesome finds...
