Here's the stuff I got at the Kit & Caboodle in Tillamook. I won a drawing for $25 worth of free stuff. Hooray!

This lovely vintage photo of early settlers in Oregon. Or at least that's who I decided they are. They don't look very happy. Maybe they just found out that it rains 9 months a year here.

See the guy with the big nose and the tie blowing in the wind? He's hot. He reminds me of someone...can't put my finger on who...Any ideas, girls?

I also got two of the most fabulous children's books I have ever seen.

The White Bunny and his Magic Nose.

Inside the front cover. Charming.

The animals on the left page are flocked. In pink. I'll say no more.

Harry the Hairless Horse which....

features a pop-up horse inside the front cover!

The Kit always has great stuff, I rarely leave empty-handed. As a bonus, all proceeds benefit developmentally disabled people in Tillamook County. It's like junking with a purpose...Awesome!

I wish our thrift stores had drawings! Lucky you! I love the kids books. I have not seen a flocked book before. Thats really cool!

It's going to drive me nuts all day, trying to figure out who Hot Guy looks like! But he looks like someone famous. Who was hot. Ah well, those books are pretty darn adorable!

I love children's books so these are amazing finds to me! That photo is funny and no idea who 'hot guy' is.

To me, a cross between Sam Shepard, Kevin Spacey, and Keith Carradine.

The brooding fellow reminds me of a dark Gary Cooper or a thin Anthony Quinn. Next trip to Tillamook I am definitely checking out this little store-thanks for the heads up!

Hot guy with blowing tie looks like Robert Mitchum.
