Last week, I told you about thrifting with my sister. For our first stop, at the Bibles for Missions store, my sister and I were joined by my niece, my husband and our two kids. The thing is, I warned the husband that we would be in the store for a good long while. My sister takes even longer than me to browse. But he wanted to come along. Of course, he ended up sitting in the car complaining.
We dropped him and the kids off at my sister's house before we went to the next two stores. My daughter did manage to find a few things at the Bibles for Missions shop though. She and I picked out these fabrics, above, thinking that we can either make doll clothes or do some kind of craft project with them one day (hopefully before she enters university in nine years).
She also picked out a "new" doll. She calls her "Ella" after one of her cousins. The dolls at Bibles for Missions are $3 to $4. The same type are $9.99 at Value Village.
That's what we paid not too long ago for "Brigitte." Still, most crappy plastic toys nowadays cost at least $10, so I figure what the heck. Does anybody know if any of these dolls at the thrift shops are actually worth any money? These two were made in China. Probably not a good sign.
We also got my girl this cute raincoat. She won't wear a raincoat often, but for $3 I think it's worth it.
This sweet floral and polka dot dress was also $3. I have paid full price for plenty of dresses like this one over the years.
Will you be visiting the thrift stores to add to your spring wardrobe?
