I love junkin’ and I love dollhouses. Somehow, somewhere it was sure to rub off on my kids. I suppose when these things are in their faces all the time, they are bound to strike an affinity for treasures I enjoy as well. Take this vintage dollhouse for example. A couple of weeks ago, we were at one of my favorite thrift stores grabbing a few goodies for Cupcake. Soy was playing in the toy section while I shopped and when it was time to go, he could not let go of this cute, vintage dollhouse. Bless his 3-year-old little heart. It was the sweetest thing and as much as I wanted to cave, I stood strong. I told him no.
The following week, I was back in search of a mannequin named Grace. Long story. Anyway, there was the little dollhouse. He knew exactly where it was and looked at me with the sweetest look, but said nothing. I asked him if he wanted it. I’m a sucker for that kid, after all, and could not withstand “the look”. As it turned out, it was half off and at $2.50 I guess it was just meant to be. He uses it for his Hotwheels and couldn’t be happier that it has a handle. Never mind the many Hotwheels racetracks we have. This kid likes to park his cars in a house, and why not?
Have you found anything you just couldn’t walk away from at a thrift store? Until next time.XO, Tommie
