Fun Stuff

Well, much to Shae's dismay I visited my new favorite store again! Who knew that The Salvation Army was full of such fun!!! Anna was not dismayed when she saw all the Groovy Girls treasures I found , cleaned and had on her bed when she came home from school!! (each item was .99! What a deal...those things are BIG BUCKS at the "regular" stores!)
Lindsay LOVES her Magna Doodle, and she is getting to be quite the artist..look at her rendition of her favorite toy (the school bus she hides when her cousin comes over, so he can't play with it! We found it in Shae's closet one time after Austin was here for dinner!) Her items are NOT from the Salvation Army- just thought you would like to see her picture!!
Shae had some random stuff on her dresser that looked cute, but, not just sitting there. So, I found this sweet apothecary jar (don't tell her but it is from the SA), cleaned it really good and put her heart shaped rock, corsage from last year's banquet, crown from homecoming and her beloved Juicy earring box in side. LOVE IT! She really is a Salvation Army snob, just wait until I find some cute Juicy stuff sometime!!

That was a real "deal of the day". Thanks for sharing! Which Sally's did you go to?

Katie said...

You did clean up! Those groovy dolls are BIG BUCKS at the store, I couldn't believe my eyes when I went to go buy some of that stuff for a birthday present!

Oh my goodness, I can't believe you found all those things at the Salvation Army...I'm SO there!! Shae looks beautiful at her "prom!" You have such beautiful daughters!

Kim, I went to the Salvation Army down on 273 and the one on Pine! There is also a thrift store up on Lake Blvd. (behind the Round Table- I think it was an old post office, next to the Masonic Lodge) it is run by the Shascade mentally challenged adults...they are soooo cute!

Kristi said...

You did good girl! I love thriftiness and finding buys like that. So exciting!

Donna said...

Wow! Those are great toys to find at the SA!! Good for you. Just wait and see, when Shae becomes a mom, she'll be doing things she thinks she never will like couponing, salvation army-ing, consignment sales...The list goes on:)

LOVE sweet Lindsey's picture and I'm laughing that she hides that school bus when her cousin comes. How sweet!!

All that stuff looks really cool, especially the jar! I wish I could find such awesome things in discount/sale shops! :D

Take me with you next time. I would love to go and I promise I am not to good for cool stuff.

Dolly said...

You DID find some good stuff! Good for you.

I think it's funny how Shae is so into "Juicy" stuff. I remember being sooooooo into Liz Claiborne and HAD to have a Liz purse with those triangles all over it. hahahah!

I dont know what kind of SA you have there in California, but somehow I dont think I would find treasures like that at ours! Love the apothecary jar. I have been looking all over for some, but they are so expensive. Never thought to check the SA.

Dolly - laughing at the Liz Claiborne memory. Blast from the past.

Great finds! I LOVE the apothecary jar with the "treasures" in it - it looks so good!

Dolly...my sisters in law and I were all CRAZY for Liz Claiborne too! So funny, now I just laugh when I see them at TJ Maxx!!
