gettin’ the fix

although it’s not quite the same when you have to unbuckle/buckle three car seats for every yard sale. it cramps my style. but i did score a box of about 30, large vintage prints (on matte board) for a dollar.

i also drug home this doll bunk bed. it needs a bit of work but it was only $5. i’ll just stash it in the attic for now and maybe spring the project on my husband in a few years when he’s grown less suspecting. it will make a good birthday present for my sweet genevieve.

i also got a couple 50 cent aprons. like i need more of those. a new, melissa and doug magnet board for $3.

and a lovely little children’s book. takes you on a tour of some girl’s house and you can poke around in the cupboards. just the thing i would have liked when i was little.

(p.s. and is it just me? or is wordpress making anyone else mad as a hatter right now?)

    You can do what I do when yard sailing–park as close as possible and leave a van door open wide to hear the whining and yell back promises of candy and soda as bribes, while the monkeys are strapped inside of course. (Is this legally considered cruel and unusual punishment?)

    what a wonderful find. worth putting 3 children in car seats and driving around in 100 degree temps

    We also practice the Mistycreek method…I buy books and toys at the earliest possible yardsale and we bring breakfast. They usually do pretty well unless ‘there are no good toys.’
