Thrift stores around where I am seem to be dwindling in fun things to find, so July was pretty slow in the thrift shopping department. Which is okay with me, since we really don’t need too many things.
Lately, I have been trying to buy things that will be particularly useful to us, like this wood stool. It was less than $3 and is in rough shape, but I’m thinking a dose of Restore-A-Finish will bring it up to par. Eliana doesn’t seem to mind the condition as she is making good use of it.
In my opinion, books are never a bad thing to have too many of. I’m especially partial to children’s books. I found this one at a thrift store I don’t go to very often. It caught my eye the first time I went there so when it was still there the second time I came around, I figured why the heck not.
I’ve been looking for a xylophone for the kids for quite some time now. This one is actual wood and metal, not plastic like newer ones, and only $1.99. It didn’t come with sticks but who needs those when you can use kitchen spoons?!
I also found a cheese grater (the box kind), which has come in handy since I am a fan of block cheese. It’s nothing special so I didn’t snap a picture of it. You’ll just have to take my word for it!
