Thrifting a Dollhouse and Eco Kids

Wooden Dollhouse
 My daughter has been asking for a dollhouse for some time.  I have been shopping and looking for nice natural ones that she would like, but the price tags were so high.  A few months ago I found this one all boxed up at a local thrift store for $15.  I didn't know if the pieces were all there, but the price was right to take a chance.  It was great that I took the chance because, YES, every piece was there, and it included furniture and people and a baby too!  It turns out that Ana loves to play with it, but her little sister enjoys it as well!  This is why I love thrifting!

    1. Thank you, and thanks for the bank idea. My girls LOVE piggy banks. They will keep emptying them and refilling them over and over.

    1. Joey, I've been finding tons of baskets and organizational things lately, and the craft supplies are a HUGE bargain. We bought a huge thing of beads at a yard sale this summer, and we've used almost all of the bigger size up already for our drums: http://www.lewismusicstudio.blogspot.com/2012/11/drumroll-please.html

  7. Great bargain! We lucked out finding TWO dollhouses (well, actually one of them is the High School Musical school building) on the curb waiting for the garbage truck, although they were in great condition. No dolls or furnishings, though--so our son started playing in them with assorted little toys he already had and some furnishings he made, and for Christmas (7 weeks later) asked for dolls and furniture. It worked out really well.
