Flea market finds

For my second trip to Mile High this summer, I got a blissful few hours of solitude and a selection of fun finds. A few more wooden hangers for the closet. $2. Some day I will have enough to get rid of the plastic ones.

A dollar fan.  How to bring joy to a 6 year old in two seconds flat.

$1 for this set of stamps. Still in the $16 packaging. Endlessly useful for school and creative activities.

Keens, always the keens. Little ones for the little one. $4.

We have been on the lookout for trains. The 4 year old turns five soon and this will be his gift. This box is huge! And very full of train building fun for years to come. $20.

And 3 vintage Fisher Price play stages. I had these. I loved these! $13. The car elevator still goes up and the school bell still rings. Now I’m in the market for the little cars and people.

Here are some bits we have thrifted. Uniform pants, $2.

Keens, I snap them up when I see them. If we can’t use them I’ll pass them on. Such good versatility and quality.

A paper making kit. $2. A really fun school or busy activity.

This is what we buy for the kids to draw on. They are prolific artists in this phase of life and go through many sheets each day. $3. Cheap and plentiful.

Thrifty couture

School clothes and larger sizes are coming up in the thrift store search. This week I found three yards of linen fabric for $3. Shirts from H&M and Target, and jeans from Gap and Children’s Place. All for $9.47. My girl wears size 8-10 at the waist, but I have to tailor off 2-3 inches at the bottom. And she isn’t really chubby! I love these colors.

Alphabet cards

Thrifted as a complete set, 226 fun alphabet flashcards with cute graphics and pithy sayings. Added to my etsy shop. Would be great with pieces in a gallery wall.
