$ 1.21 worth of FUN

The thrift store we LOVE to visit
bags up little random junk in very thin....very cheap clear bags.
For kids....trinkets....small toys...happy meal type junk
just the kind of treasures my wee one loves !!!
For big girls.....ribbon....vintage trim....notions....buttons
OH...Chloe and I LOVE the bags
and affordable...Oh My...they are never over 2.21.
On this particular day....we were perusing the bags
handling each one...looking deep inside to see what's in there
JACKPOT !!!!!!!!!!!!
A BAG.....full of VINTAGE Smurf figurines....and accessories and only 1.21.
since the bag cost me 1.21 this is not completely FREE Fun
but fun none the less
You know if it came from the thrift store...it simply has to be washed
As long as I can remember......Chloe has completely enjoyed standing at the sink
and washing....anything.
For a solid HOUR she scrubbed....and rinsed
each little piece to a near spotless........brand new state

If you have never let your child have their way with your kitchen sink....a toothbrush....a sponge and some soap.....

Do it soon.....its only water....it cleans up well.

have a happy day

Pin It!

I loved this post! I let my son bury my legs with sand at the beach even though I was wearing a skirt and he was getting me all wet and sandy. It was the best 45 minutes spent. Sometimes you have to just go with it.

My kids and I love to thrift too. I laugh becase after a few months I find myself "donating" the same stuff back to the thrift store. It's worth it!
