Stockblock'n

Isn't this cool?

I found a bunch of great stuff at an estate sale this morning. This lipstick filled matchbook was one of them. The kids were with me and it was awesome to watch them treasure hunt, clutching their fistful of dollars. Far better than the dollar store I say.

The first estate sale we went to was packed with super cool vintage everything. Plus the former owner was a teacher which translates to "tidy and saves it all" in the estate sale jungle. So people were quite intense about rushing past to spot the good stuff first. It ticked them off that the kids would meander in the doorways as they were barrelling for that milk glass candy bowl. Next time I'm going to use that to my advantage and throw the kids into the aisle so they can act as my stockblockers while I grab that tin of buttons. It's not wrong. No it isn't.

Lipstick matchbook? How clever!

And by all means, use the kids to your advantage.
