Yesterday I went in there with the purpose of looking for some winter boots for Sam. At first I didn't see anything that looked like the right size, so I went looking through the clothes because he needed a white shirt for Patch Club. I was so excited to find a nice long sleeved button up shirt in his size, even Lands End brand! :) Then I looked at the clothes in Josiah's size, hoping to find him some new jammies. I was tickled to find a cute pair with monkeys on them--perfect because he is always saying, "I'm a monkey!"
I went to pay for the things and mentioned to the lady that I was looking for winter boots for Sam. She pointed out a pair of Bogs insulated mud boots that were just a size or two bigger than what he wears. They are expensive boots (around $60 on Amazon), rated to -30 degrees, and she had them priced at $20.25. Yes, that still sounds expensive for boots, but I had looked around at Walmart and Marshalls, and other stores, and the cheapest boots I found were $17, and after my store credit was applied to everything, all I ended up spending for these was $17.19. Yay! They are high quality boots and should hopefully last through all three kids, unlike cheapie boots. I felt like God put them there just for me.
So it was a happy thrift shopping day. :)
