Book it to Bookman’s

photos 311I’ve been clearing out a lot of stuff lately and taking them to trade at Bookman’s Entertainment Exchange.  Well, I ended of with a whole mess of trade credit, and so yesterday I decided to use some of it.  Actually most of it.  I came home with one of their super cute paper bags brimming with goodies.

I got this magazine/book thing called Altered CoutureI’m not sure if it is suppose to be a magazine or a book since it’s so thick, but it’s chock full of ideas for altering old clothes into something more interesting.  Along with it, I found a pair of pinking shears.  Woo Hoo!  They were priced at $5.  I’ve been dying to get a pair.  Now just think of all the things I can do with them.  Heh, Heh.

I also found this book, 100 Things You Don’t Need a Man For.  It’s about doing repair work and home improvement, and it’s really cute.  The instructions are fun and easy to understand, and it’s full of vintage illustrations and funny pictures of fashion dolls.  I just find it amusing as well as useful.

And for fun, I got this.  Really, those other things are for practical purposes.  I love Cathy, though not as much as my sister.  She finished this one off before I got a chance to look at it.  Still, Cathy comic strips are hilarious, I especially love the shopping ones.  We all can relate to her predicaments in the dressing room.  And if not, they’re still funny.

With all this, it only came to about $27.  And I use trade credit, so essentially it was free to me.  Not too shabby, right?  And this time I did spread out beyond my usual path.  When I buy stuff at Bookman’s, it’s usually anime DVDs or videos and manga.  And sometimes Archie comics.  I guess sometimes it more interesting to do things a little differently.  Maybe next time, I’ll look for my comics at Goodwill instead of craft stuff.
