vintage pull toy

Ulysses and I have been making trips to the thrift store. I”ve been trying to get us out of the house as much as possible lately. I hear that shopping becomes all but impossible with babies a bit older than him, so I”m trying to get my fill!

There are several thrift stores I like, but we mostly go to the big Goodwill on Dearborn. It”s pretty close to our house, always has parking, and there are no stairs inside so I can mange it with the stroller. I”ve been bringing home mostly child-related items, like these vintage books and sweet bee pull toy. How cute is that? It was buried under the rubble of some pretty gross toys and looked like it had been deserted for a while. I felt badly for the poor little bee.

    Fabulous finds. What a fun little toy! I am eyeing those books thinking I would love to use them in some of my collages. I really need to go thrifting to find some. It does get a little harder to get out with toddlers, but so much better around four. I have two girls, four and 2.5. The worst is taking both of them right now. Thanks for stopping by my blog!

    The pull toy is so cute! And my dad would be proud of your book finds. Do you see much vintage fabrics or sheets in your outings? I never can seem to find any…

    So cute. We were given a bee like that from another Mom and I like it as much as the kids.
    Great book finds too.
    Shopping with older kids can be challenging but, you still have time:)

    Oh my gosh, that bee…I had one of those as a little girl! Totally forgot about it until I saw your picture. Her wings make a little ratchety sound when you pull her along, right?

    I”m in my thirties now but that bee brings back so many good memories. What a great find.
