My First Trip to an A.C. Moore

We don't have A.C. Moore stores in Ohio, so it was a real treat to get to go to one in South Carolina. I even got to go twice! Here are some of my mini bargains.
This is a bag of miniature bears. Their legs and arms seem to be able to move. In this picture, are a dollhouse toilet, the bears show above, a bag of tiny shells, a wooden barrel, two dressers or desks, a wooden sandal picture frame and corner picture thingies I plan to use to make miniature desk calendars with.

Miniature Finds while on vacation in South Carolina

I bought these cheap pirate figures at a Walmart in the souvenir section of the store.
I bought this box of tiny colored shells for $4.00 at a gift shop on a pier.
This is a heavy gold pineapple I found at a Goodwill store. It is about 2 inches tall.
I got this from a gift shop. This is a mermaid laying on a folding chair. I plan to remove her from the chair, and recover the chair. I will use the mermaid in another scene.

Antique Store Finds

The above record album holder only cost me $1.00!
The gold pieces above were also a great find at another antique store. I bought these for only $5.00!
