Thursday morning we took off in our travel van for the Model Train Show in York, PA. Usually Hubby goes alone but this time he signed up for a camping site so he could spend the night without having to drive back and forth to the show daily.
And he bought a ticket for me just in case I wanted to go with him.
And I did!
The show is one of the largest in the country held two times a year.
I enjoyed it - the only negative is they don't allow cell phones (on) or cameras (photo taking) inside any of the buildings. Bummer for any blogger!
While there I bought some cute things.
Here are two of them.
The Halloween scarecrow is a collector's vintage plastic candy holder (Rosebro) from the early 1940s. It was expensive ($50) but so unusual I just couldn't resist it.
The seller had several different Halloween candy holders but this was my favorite.
I wished I could have bought the set but it was just too expensive.
The vintage Mickey Mouse is from 1985 Disney souvenir (Pride Lines Ltd).

Hubby mentioned I should check to make sure the iPhone lens isn't dirty but this is probably due to low light in the back of our house.
I have one other purchase to show you later.
Our landscapers are here to landscape a portion of our back yard by the the driveway/garage/deck. I'll be posting about that project when it is finished.
That's all today folks!
