Swap Meet Fun!
A local church had a swap meet today. They advertised it as having lots of kids stuff, and they weren’t kidding! It started at 8, and when I got out of there at 9, I was in a panic that there would be nothing left- you should have seen the truck-fulls of stuff people were bringing out of the church! And it was all quality items.
My purchases are below.
This is the stuff I bought for Max: A monkey picture for his room, an animal shower curtain, a Magna Doodle, waffle blocks, a firefighters hat, and the cute little horse flashlight.
This stuff is for my classroom, although I may let Max play with some of it first. A nice truck puzzle, three puppets, and three more dress up hats.
I bought the Bumbo for my cousin LeAna
, who is due in late January. I know it’s a little early to be buying things for her, but the Bumbo was only $10 and in great condition, so I couldn’t pass it by. I’d be lying if I said this is the first thing I bought her! I can’t help it- girls’ clothes are just so cute!
My most exciting purchase of the day- a car seat for my mom’s car. For $5! And it is so super clean, I’m not sure this thing was used for very long! I was walking on air after I bought this- there’s nothing like finding super deals. I even told the guy at Starbucks about it.
In total, I paid $32. I could have gotten some of the items for less (like the bumbo and the puzzle), because people were practically giving stuff away. But, the sellers deserve decent money for their stuff. It’s all in good condition and I’m happy to pay what they ask.
I didn’t buy any clothes this time around. Every table had tons of clothes, but I just wasn’t in the mood to search through it all because somebody wanted to get home and get back to his reading…
