Well folks, it's time for "Thrift Share Monday" and I have to say..."I'm excited!!!".
Last Thursday I went back to the local estate sale one day before they opened to the public as I knew they were going to take out some more items. When I arrived I walked to the back area since I didn't really spend too much time there the week before. As I walked back I immediately saw the cutest vintage doll rocking crib! I gently smiled and picked it up thinking how cute that would be for Christmas. Then, to my delight I noticed something else. It was the oddest big wooden box that was partially open and looked like it had some drawers inside. I opened it up a bit wider and wow...it was a steamer trunk for doll clothes priced at only $16!! Score!!! I then went up front to ask the price for the crib. The owner said she was gonna tag it for $20 but would give it to me for $10! Score!!!As you can probably tell, this Mama is still excited about it-lol! Two great items for only $26 dollars.
My plans? Well, I thought this is a great way to get a jump start on Christmas items. I am going to clean up the rocking crib, make a new mattress pad for it, a new pillow, and a doll quilt. Imagine how cute that'll look under the Christmas tree! My plan for the doll steamer trunk? I will be making clothes for my little ones dolls, put them on little hangers, maybe make some shoes and accessories and put them in the drawers. Imagine how cute that'll be when they open it up!!
I'm excited to take something pre-owned and "Doll it up"- pardon the pun! What a fun project it'll be! I look forward to showing you all the finished projects :D
