WW - The Hunt

>> Wednesday, September 15, 2010

My Aunt Bebe loved to go thrifting. I went along with her at an early age. She loved the hunt and in turn taught me to love it as well. When Matt and I first met we used to go to antique shows and swap meets. Fun times. My kids are still a little too young for that yet but what they aren't too young for is thrift stores. There is always something to find at a thrift store right? Violet now asks me if we can go to the Goodwill or Value Village. My girls love those stores as much as I do. It makes me so happy. I had some errands to run and asked her if she wanted to stop by Goodwill on our way home. Well certainly she did. So I packed up my car with 2 boxes that I had to donate and off we went. It is like a vicious circle, I buy and then I purge lol :)

What goodies did we come home with? Well I found a beautiful "much to fancy to wear to school but since it was $2 she can" dress for our Violet. A swim cover up for me - while you are reading this I am probably wearing it b/c we are AT THE BEACH! Finally the the pièce de résistance - the owl necklace.

While we were in the parking lot Violet found a dime. She decided she wanted to buy something with her money. I know a dime doesn't buy much these days but I agreed to let her look at the costume jewelry. She found this piece with no price tag and they gave it to us for $.50. I thought that was a little high but she loves it. I know I am not really teaching her the value of money b/c I had to give her $.40 to cover it but she is 3. There is a lifetime to learn you can't afford anything. That is why you shop at the thrift store - treasures to be found!

More Wordless Wednesday at 5 Minutes for Mom and for the more chatty ones like myself there is Wordful Wednesday.

You girls are after my own heart, because I looove thrifting. You just never know what you're going to find. :) And I so agree with that last statement. I'd have given her the extra money too. :)

Hope you're enjoying your getaway!

I want to scavenger with these girls. They've got their eye on the prize. Love the owl necklace, Violet!
