I haven't been to a thrift store in ages. AGES! Ok, more like 3 months, but for me-that's ages. I went last week and scored bigtime! Here are the first couple things-
This fabulous vintage metal, doll sized chest. It was this glorious color of aqua. The top had a kitty holding flowers on it. I realize that sounds like it might be nice, but trust me-it's better off with a little of Amy's latest fabric on it. Now all those doll clothes have a home. This set me back a whopping $2, and about a buck for the fabric.
This next one I love love love. Perfectly aged rocking horse, $5. Ethan was with me at the time of purchase and refused to get on the thing. Mental dilemma-to get or not to get even though intended won't touch it. ?? What would you do? Well, it made it home with us and it took about .2 seconds of his sister showing interest in it for him to claim it as his own and he hasn't really left it since. Woo hoo!
Thank you for all the interest in the new items! Everyone's input has probably saved the red Henna Garden from hitting the cutting room floor. Not because I WANTED to cut it-but something had to go and it was the one I was suggesting to do away with. But you guys want it, so you're going to get it. Feel free to keep casting your vote-I'm going to leave it open for a few more days and then we'll announce the winners!
