Another great thrift store find!

My husband just came home with these, and I couldn't wait to post these and show you what he got for me at Salvation Army for $6.00!

My husband is the best! Sorry for the rest of you, but I got the last man (and the best, in my opinion) in his family. ;)

Anyway, check it out. These boxes are Pizza Hut large pizza boxes, just to give you an idea:

Those black and white things look like large foam stamps. Do they look familiar to anyone? I'm sure they were part of a specialized set, and I'd love to know what it is! Also in this picture: Cloissone, mini file folders, 4 decorative scissors. But wait, there's more! Here's what else was shoved in that box:

More of those foamy stamps; a Fiskars rubber brayer, complete with handle, soft rubber brayer and 3 decorative attachments; 2 Rubber Stampede ink pads (white and black); 4 more decorative scissors (2 of which are corner scissors); Fiskars rotary cutter; and metallic gold paint. The price for what you see in both of the last two pictures? Just $3.00!

But wait, there's even more! These came in a second pizza box for $3.00:

Yes, there is a K-sized stamp in there! Most of them are not teeny stamps.

I think my husband deserves a "husband of the year" award. Don't you? :)

Husband of the year is right! I absolutely LOVE your blog and will be back often. TFS!

Giggles...I should tell you that I'm really not Tom, I'm his Missus, I just don't know how to fix it.

Tom's Missus - Thanks for clarifying! I thought maybe my husband put you up to that comment! ;)

The stamps were part of a set from QVC, one of Lisa Bernson's idea books, seems like it came with the stamps and an album or something.

Liz - Thanks so much!!! I really didn't think anyone would recognize them, but it never hurts to ask, right? :)
