On Saturday, friends were hosting a multi family yard sale. Despite thinking they were a bit crazy or just glutton for punishment (I prefer the lazy technique of donating all unwanted items to Purple Heart and taking the tax write-off at the end of the year), I strapped Elly into her bike trailer and headed over to find some treasures. One person’s trash is another man’s treasure, you know.
I found many treasures, but they all were for Elly and Jake save one.
My friend tried to warn me about this toy chest. She mentioned that her daughter liked to climb inside and would always fall on her head when trying to get out. I must admit that I dismissed her warning. So stupid.
The first thing Elly wanted to do with the toy chest was climb inside and play with her baby dolls.
This entire outfit was purchased at our local consignment store or local yard sale. I decided if the clothes at Evergreen Consignment were good enough for my only daughter, they were good enough for me too. I may never go back to buying clothes at department stores, except for special occasions. It’s so much cheaper and the quality is just as good. Of course if I ever get more time to sew, I may never buy special occasion clothes either.
