This past week I got a jogging stroller, vintage school desk and hangers. I wasn't looking for any of the items but... Rule #1 of bargain shopper - be open to a bargain at any time!
The Stroller - $21.96
This Bell jogging stroller looks like it was never used more than a few times. It's in perfect condition not evan a fingerprint on the foam handle bar. If you know anything about jogging strollers you know they are pricey; I got this baby for a song...hmmm....Hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah (remember that from church?)!
The Vintage School Desk - $4.54
In my family room I have a ginormous vintage chalkboard that I got on Freecycle (note...free). It's like 8-10 feet long. Baby I is going to have her own corner so when I am washing, in my office or watching the tube she can play. Her playroom is on the second loft level, but I won't feel comfortable with her all the way up there until she is much older. Plus, I followed my mother from room to room...I think I still do when she is around. I recall last month when she left the room I said "Mommy where are you going?" She said "the bathroom." Me..."can I go?" Just joking...but I did ask.
I think the desk will go nicely and look Fab once repainted and cleaned up! It looks like a big girl/boy desk but it is made for toddlers.
The hangers - $6.48 for 95
And just as I was trying to escape from the store I saw these colorful hangers. It looks like someones grandmother (definitely not mine) carefully knitted coverings for all of them. They are so cute and will look fabulous in Baby I's closet. NO MORE WIRE HANGERS! Right now the closet is full of baby hangers so I'll just pack them away for a few years until her clothes can fit them. I had to get them. You know the rule...Be prepared for a bargain at any time! And Rule #2- You snooze you loose or think long, think wrong. A thrift store doesn't keep items long. If you like it/love it...get it because it will NOT (I repeat WILL NOT) be there when you turn the corner to come back and get it. I've had many a bargain woe is me stories. :-)
Tell me about your bargains and where you got them from. I'm always open to new place where I can get a bargain.
See you soon for Deal of the Day!
