A Thrift Store Adventure

I need a new camera. Lately mine has been doing this weird thing where it blurs any photo that needs flash. I’ve cleaned the flash, I’ve cleaned the lens. I have no idea what’s going on with it really. It makes me not want to take pictures of anything, bah.

Anyhow, I really like second-hand stores. It’s been my go-to method of obtaining items forever. I’m probably going to go again today because I realized I am short a casserole dish for Thanksgiving. That just isn’t cool, you know?

I introduced Hutch to Once Upon A Child this past weekend. I had a bag of Gaia’s clothes that needed to be donated, but I always like to see if I can get anything out of them first. So I found my local children’s consignment store and we traded in some things.

See that crappy photo? It didn’t even look that bad until I uploaded it. Ugh…

Miss Gaia doesn’t like jeans very much at all. So I got her some brown pants, green cargo pants, and some cute corduroys with the tag still on it. I tried to stick with mix and match colors for simplicity. I also got her a white button up, a grey turtle neck (jersey material though, for comfort), and this cranberry long-sleeved shirt.

And I could not resist that summer dress. It was only $4 and it is so freaking adorable.

To make it a little more interesting for Hutch, we also got the baby his first outfits. Check it:

Hutch plays guitar, so we had to get our son some rockin’ onesies. And look… tiny shorts! *squee*
