Yesterday's Thrift Store Finds

The big O and I made a quick trip to the thrift store yesterday afternoon.  Our cart was full of some fun red things.  Here's the run down on what we got...


These super adorable shoes for Bolivia...


Three Disney movie favorites and a fun tin little bucket with hearts...



 This fun little I Spy game...



 A fun little red place mat (with this in mind) and two puzzles, one in great condition, the other just okay...

And last, but certainly not least...
Olivia's baby


 Olivia spied this on some random shelf at the thrift store (i.e. not with the other baby dolls and toys) and said "Baby!  Baby!  Baby!" so much I couldn't resist.  It had a couple random markings on the face and legs, but--trust me--I've looked at baby dolls like this at the thrift store before and they are all creepy.  So this one was a winner in my book.  And definitely in Olivia's.  It didn't have a price tag on it, but I figured it couldn't be more than $1.00.  And then when I asked the cashier she said, "50 cents?"  Sure!  And for 50 cents, Olivia truly couldn't be happier.  Although, obviously, I'll have to make the dolly some clothes.


Total cost: $10.25

Hooray for thrift stores!

What thrift store are you going to? Out here, we only have Goodwill and Salvation Army. And somehow Salvation army is sometimes more expensive then buying new (ie. totally a waste of my time!)

Hooray indeed! I stopped at Value Village the other evening when I was feeling a little blue, and left with 4 professional-looking tops to wear to work. Got lots of compliments when I wore them to work--cheered me right up!

You can also make that placemat into an apron for your little girlie! Just lay it lengthwise on the front of her...stitch a length of ribbon on each side to tie in the back of her...and a length of ribbon sewn to the top of the placemat that is long enough to go over her head...if she's really short, fold the bottom 1/3 of the placemat up and stitch it into pockets...she'll love it!
