|My little toy corner|
I finally cleaned out their closets (usually happens twice a year, but this time with their help), and I told them that they could put stuff aside in two piles - one for charity and one for the antique booth, and they would get the profits for Christmas. Wow! Talk about incentive! After taking several boxes of clothes, toys, books and shoes to GW, we had quite the little cute pile leftover to take to the booth. It was almost like shopping, but from our own closet.
We wrapped vintage-looking wood puzzle boxes in cling wrap, put Playmobile and Legos in Ziploc bags and put little price stickers on them. We also made several bundles of classic hardcover books (Sandra Boynton, anyone?) with red string and left following note on the basket "All profit from this basket will go to a local charity". When I put the kids' stash in the booth, I decided to display them in a couple of the vintage suitcases I have there that have not sold yet. And the kids and I think it looks pretty good!
Would you shop here?
