The Mary Frances Cook Book from 1912: $1. If the girl onj the cover seems familiar, its b/c the illustrator is Margaret G. Hays, the woman who created the Campbell's Soup kids! The book is in poor condition, but I've seen copies online listed around $100 (not just on Ebay, but on actual book seller sites). I just wanted it for the charming pictures. :)

Infant care book from 1929: $1. Something to add to my vintage baby clothes/stuff collection

The 1960's bubblecut titian hair Barbie cost me $8. Her condition is really not very good, but I've never seen one that cheap before. I plan to keep her with my other vtg Barbie stuff for a while and collect some more things, and eventually I will sell it all as one big lot. I like vintage barbie stuff, but it's not really something I collect.
