I’ve been finding a number of vintage children’s sweaters thrifting lately. There’s a lot of red, isn’t there? He’s been wearing the first one for a while now and I was happy to see that it still fits and he can get another winter out of it. The little dragon/dino one is a size 6, so I’m crossing my fingers that I’ll be able to convince him to wear it when he’s that old. A couple of these are girl sweaters that I just couldn’t pass up! Even though we don’t have a little girl. Maybe some day and if not I’ll happily gift them to some surely adorable little one. Ryan tells me I need to stop.
Is it just me, or has the thrift store gotten pricey? A few of these were $5. I saw an Ikea furnishing that I know costs $3 priced at $7 there a few trips back. I guess with popularity comes cost increase, but it does make me pause and wonder about the cost implications for the people that depend on getting a good deal.
We had a lovely weekend. It’s really fall now, isn’t it? The leaves are on the ground and the air has a cool bite to it and the next 5 days of forecast are all gray and rainy. Time to put grass seed out and get to the pumpkin patch. I have a few costume ideas in mind that I need to get started on.
