Object: Collect the Biggest Bargain

I had an excellent time at Savers last night! There was a definite moment where my thrifty heart skipped a couple beats. I had to check over my shoulder a few times for any lurkers- then I snatched this:
A vintage Pyrex Instant Coffeemaker!
It even came with the original pamphlet! Score! (Oh yeah, and it was only $3.99!)
I also found:
A nice retro Diane Von Furstenberg button down shirt (I WILL be removing the shoulder pads!)
Milton Bradley "Park and Shop" board game circa 1970
Could this be any more perfect?? I will school anyone who wants to challenge me at this game!
Lastly, these were very much out of my norm:
Never picked up a knitting needle in my life...but these adorable stocking kits sure make me want to learn how to knit (LOVE the kitty cat one)! Alternately, they also made me think of Etsy. Definitely don't have my own shop...yet. Are these the kinds of things Etsy crafters are looking for?

I don't know about etsy, but I just did a quick search on ebay, and Bucilla stocking kits are selling for $21-$35! I love the Pyrex coffeemaker. Amazing that it had all the parts AND the pamphlet. And that board game cracks me up. I love the graphics.

@Betty- Thanks, ebay looks to be the way to go on the stockings! I ended up playing the board game over the weekend and my boyfriend beat me twice! Boo!

Heh, good choice on the shoulder pads! I do the peek-over-shoulder-for-lurkers too... Sometimes it seems too good to be true that someone left such an item on the shelf!

Great finds! Especially the coffee maker :) Thanks for another great comment on my blog!! If you make the lasagna and brownies, let me know how they come out!
