Estate Sale Loot: We did not get murdered!

Thursday was hilarious. Emma and I met at the house and then rang the bell. Knocked. Rang the bell. Peered in the windows. Agreed that we weren't leaving because we had already driven all the way here. Looked for the post on craigslist, only to find it had been deleted.

The Emma knocked on the door really hard and it swung open a little bit. That made it a little creepy, but we yelled "hellllooo" in the open door and still no one answered. Repeat all of this for about 15 minutes. Then we go to the back door to knock and a car pulls into the driveway, so we scamper back to the front door.

Apparently the guy cancelled his ad and called an estate sale company after people came to buy stuff and trashed the place. He did let us come in and look around, since he had already said that we could. We did not get murdered, hooray!

Now, on to the loot!

 I was too lazy to bring these in, but we're getting the Xmas tree tomorrow... $12.75 worth of National Geographics at 25 c each.
 Total was 20 bucks, so the rest of this stuff came to 9.25, which would be about 66 cents each. 5 packs of seam binding, 2 aprons, 1 holiday table runner, one piece of fabric with blue flowers (which I realized is extremely similar to this dress. I like blue flowers, I guess!).
I bought two knitting books since I am trying to re-learn how to knit (correctly this time). I also found an ancient buttonhole attachment and another zigzag attachment, which I will sell on etsy. Also buttons, which I will also sell on etsy.
