Exchangin' that Mechandise, Part II

We went out "treasure hunting" again today. Not quite the haul of the last two sessions, but good nonetheless. Also, commode sightings were off the charts. We beat our previous record by three -- that's nine commodes! I think the two pairs we found helped quite a bit. So what else did we find?

--books. It was a massacre. There were bags and bags of books, all of which were covered in dew. I saved the ones I could. I left feeling very depressed.
--comic books (no covers -- for crafting, though Norman insisted on reading them first)
--packing peanuts!!! This had been the great irony of the month -- no one ever wants packing peanuts, they are a nuisance, and yet I, who did want them, could not find anyone getting rid of any until this morning. But I have a big ol' bag now, so I'm good. I'm going to put a layer of them in the bottom of my planters to keep the root rot away.
--a tiny glass vase
--And now, the completely useless, most awesome find of the day.......
A miniature store display canvas tent! Ya know, like these, only mine is more like a canopy for having a party in your backyard. I've wanted one of these since I was quite young, for my dolls, of course, so now I have no idea what I will do with it. Sell it on eBay, maybe. In fact, I think I'll go outside right now and see if I can actually take it off its plastic base.
