Arianne over at Simple Design has started a fun link-up for sharing our thrift store purchases, Thrift Haul. Second-hand shopping is one of my favorite hobbies (if you can call something that is also a necessity a hobby, and I think you can).
As I mentioned yesterday, we’ve been spending quite a few weekend mornings cruising the thrift stores looking for picture frames.
Recently one of my thrift store scores had me flashing back to my own childhood: a Fisher-Price Main Street set.
Normally I’m not really a fan of plastic toys and prefer playthings made of natural materials. However, I remember playing with, and loving, Fisher-Price little people as a child and I just couldn’t resist adding this one to our collection (we also have the Fisher-Price barn that was mine as a kid). What can I say? My sentimental heartstrings were plucked.
We were lucky to find this one in its original box, with all of its pieces, and with the stickers in terrific shape. What fun!
It was five dollars well spent as the kids have been enjoying it and I have been enjoying reliving my own childhood memories.
