Well, last night was the last club meeting until September although we do have one summer social get-together at a member's home.
The highlight of the meeting is a garage sale where members can sell off anything they no longer want. Unfortunately, only a few bring things to it anymore. And I'm as guilty as anyone!
When we went to Driving Miss Dolly in Red Deer, Marilyn A. who is an associate member from Calgary gave us some items that had been donated to the Calgary Doll Club to sell. There wasn't a whole lot of stuff but I did pick up a few things.
Got 14 pieces of strip wood for 25 cents each. Can always use this.
(Two hours later! We just had a humungous lightning storm. Just had time to shut down the computer before the lightning hit the building and set off the fire alarm. So had to evacuate the building. But all is well and we're all back in.)
Was pleased to get this Realife Miniatures kit containing all the shelving for a country store. Shelving always comes in handy and I'm sure I'll use the counters at some point.
Got all these plastic containers of dessicant from Joanne's stash (she was giving them away).The large ones are 1" tall and the smaller ones are 3/4" tall. Think I'll spray paint them with primer, add some decals and make some canisters for a kitchen. (These are sometimes used in bottles of prescription drugs to absorb moisture.)
