I had one opportunity to stop by my favorite thrift store this month and mostly struck out. Well, actually I struck out for myself… but did well for other people!
The one thing I found for me:
J.Crew beaded necklace, $5.99
This photo makes me laugh so hard. Ollie was laying on the bed when I was putting stuff away, so I decided that he could ‘model’ my new necklace. He was not thrilled. I really liked the color scheme of the beads on this necklace with the bright orange cord. It just looks so very ‘SPRING’ to me and I decided that even though I rarely wear necklaces, I needed this one. For $6, it wasn’t much of a gamble. And it looks beautiful on Ollie.
Things I found for everyone else:
K’Nex Ferris Wheel with Motor, $4.99 and K’Nex 60 Model Set, $10.99
I bought Jack some K’Nex for Christmas and he loves them, so when I saw this unopened Ferris Wheel for $4.99, I knew he would want me to buy it. These sets go for about $25 – 30, so it was quite the deal. Jack was so excited that he put it together as soon as he woke up on Saturday morning. I also scooped up a larger set of random K’Nex pieces for $10.99 that was opened but had a ton of pieces in the box. He played with them all weekend long and asked that I keep my eyes out for any more K’Nex next time I go thrifting!
Color Sort Rainbow, $2.99
I found this new-in-box baby learning toy and couldn’t resist picking it up for one of my nephews. The box is a little banged up, but the toy is still perfect and unused. It’s a Montessori-style toy that helps kids with color sorting, stacking and creativity. They’re selling for $16.99 on Amazon, so buying one for $3 was a no-brainer.
