I have been out to a few garage sales in the last few weeks and as well as the following items, I've picked up a few pairs of baby shoes for Nora and some more kids books. Those are always in abundance at garage sales and thrift stores. You can usually find best sellers and favourites in great shape for around 25 cents each. That is practically free! I also scored a few baby toys that I gave to the grandmas to keep at their houses.
I am a little picky about the germ factor when shopping for second hand things for Nora, however, most things can easily be washed and disinfected.
Without further adieu.....!
|A puppet theatre! This was actually free. I found it at the dump! As you can see, it needs a little TLC. I am planning to paint it and replace the curtains. I may use it in my classroom at school until Nora is old enough to play with it.|
|Play dough toys, all for $1. Nora isn't quite at the play dough stage yet, so these will likely end up in my classroom. It was too good of a deal to pass it up!|
|More ornate frames! Mr. Tweedle's parents are in the process of purging and cleaning as well and I scored these for free from their give-away pile. Slowing feeding my obsession, one frame at a time....|
Have you had any good finds lately?
