The Incidental Thrifter




Today we were on a walk and just decided to drop into our local op shop. We're crazy and spontaneous like that. Flying by the seat of our pants.

Hello Bargains!

My big boy scored an even bigger Little Tikes truck, and is totally enamoured with it, even stating 'This is the biggest truck I've ever seen!'. He conducted a car wash with it this afternoon, and has even been riding around on it.

I scored too. A gorgeous old heart shaped baking tin. Cuisenaire rods. A 50c Golden Book called 'The Good Humor Man' (?!), and a vintage children's pattern for my sister.

Am I happy with that thrifting? You bet your bottom bippy!

Rods - ah how I used to love playing with them - the best way to learn to count and do arithmetic!
