I mentioned running to our local thrift store yesterday to my kiddos, and they were so ready to go. (My oldest was hoping to find a used Lacrosse stick ~ we didn't find one but are still on the hunt!) The kids loved seeing what they had to offer, and I didn't have to worry over spending too much while we looked around. (Shopping with three kids at most stores can be a huge challenge ~ not so much at the thrift store!) It was a great way to hang out together on a quiet afternoon, and they all enjoyed exploring a bit!
Here are a few of the things we spied along the way . . .
Several old records (2 of my 3 kiddos had never seen a record before ~ wow!)
Some really cute prints for a little boy's bedroom for just $4 (in case you know anyone who needs them . . .)
This print that I thought *might* have potential if put in the right frame?
A fun odd-shaped ottoman (I've been wanting one for my office, but am not ready to tackle reupholstering quite yet)
My girls also got a kick out of looking at all the fancy dresses and thought this one could be Cinderella's (if you need something formal, check your thrift store for beautiful dresses!)
And my son was so impressed that you could get a working television for just $20.
After our trip we swung by Sonic for half price slushes, so our entire afternoon outing cost just $3.58! My kids were pretty content without buying anything while we thrifted, but if you have little ones and want to just buy a small special treat, you could easily find books, puzzles and games for less than $1.
