On April 17th 1957 I became big sister to boy/girl baby twins. This year my brother and his wife were celebrating in Hawaii.
I treated my sister to a day of thrifting. I didn’t tell her what I had planned I just picked her up and headed to the first store. I pulled into Goodwill and handed her a gift card. She didn’t find anything but I came home with a good supply of soap
Next stop Value Village. I found more doll clothes patterns and some hand warmers that I will donate to a homeless mission.
We went to a second Goodwill where my sister found a tea pot (NEW) and a saucer that matches her antique china
After our day of thrifting we went to the Ballard Locks for a picnic that was capped off by a birthday cake that featured her garden including the chickens. After sunset we called it a day.
Is a day of thrifting your idea of a fun birthday activity?
