I think fall had officially arrived up here. The leaves are turned and littering the ground and it's starting to get cold. Blah. That means winter and freezing temps are right around the corner. Double blah.
Church garage sales on the other hand are not blah. We checked one out last Saturday since they're a great place for kids books and we've been on the hunt for a bicycle large enough for the husband. While the big bike remains elusive, we did find tons of great kids books and I found something special! Most of the time church sales are pretty meh for clothes, but I noticed a great structured handbag under a pile of clothes. It looked like leather so I pulled it and after a moment of inspection, casuaaaaly walked over to the ladies with the cash boxes.
Me: Soooo, how much are the handbags?
Church lady: $3.00
Me: Including this one?
Church lady: All purses are $3.00.
Me: All of them?
Church lady: Yes. $3.00.
I'm pretty sure she thought I was crazy, but I'll take looking ;like a crazy chick in exchange for a great vintage leather Coach purse for $3.00. Yes, Yes I will. I think makes up for the dry spell at the thrift stores lately. Although I did break my boycott of Value Village yesterday, since they had a 50% off sale for kids clothes, so we stocked up on jeans for the kids. (It's so funny, Gunnar actually likes clothes shopping, he slowly went through the pile of jeans in his size and picked out the ones he liked and found little sweaters to go with them. He always tries to pick out clothes that look like his uncles' clothes, since he's pretty sure they're the coolest guys ever. Izzy just goes for the pinkest shirts she can find, or anything that has a dog on it.)
