When I’ve been back and forth to the doctor for my foot I’ve managed to still be able to hit up favorite thrift stores. Once a die hard thrifter…always a die hard thrifter.
On one particular day I hit the jack pot.
I’ve been picking up “My Little Ponies” for the childcare kiddos. With the childcare kids I need several of each item, no matter what it is, to keep the kids from fighting. I I have mostly girls in childcare and I was certain I they’d love playing with the ponies. While garage saling and thrifting I managed to collect about five. That sounds like plenty but I know my girls. There were some ponies that were small and some that were large. Someone would have a fit if they didn’t have a “baby” pony. I ended up keeping the ponies in the cupboard waiting for the day when I managed to be at the right place at the right time and find more ponies.
Well that day happened. I found a treasure trove of ponies…some were 10 cents a pieces, some a quarter and some 50 cents. I was so excited. I think I found 12!! Yep, I took every one that was in the store. One of my plans to do while I am recouping is to get their hair all brushed out and cleaned. It would be a good sitting job.
I bought a back pack at WalMArt to keep them in. The bag new was only $2.50. The wasn’t much money for a new set of toys the girls are going to have such fun with.
The thing I am on the hunt for now is some mini hair brushes…that and some hair barrettes. I’m sure they are going to love playing with these. I am so happy that some family out grew them and donated them.
The other thing I found…more Bratz dolls. I still want to redo them and fix them up. Remember I told you about them before?? (check out this post if you missed it) I have enough and likely shouldn’t have bought these..but oh well. $4 for the lot. I’ve wasted more money on more foolish things.
I also got a little bag of scrap fabric…50 cents worth. See what 50 cents brought me…
It’s not a lot but definitely worth 50 cents.
Most is going to be cut up and put in scrap buckets but not these two. I love the owls and I the star wars fabric is going in with my collection of Star Wars fabrics.
I can’t tell you how much I love thrifting. I spent very little but got so much.
I am so very thankful that people donate their unwanted items to thrift stores. It’s great entertainment for me and a good thrifting day for me is golden.
