Makes My Monday: Gently Used Gear

What Makes My Monday? Used toys and books!

This Saturday was our local MOT sale. Check out Goddess's description with photos. It was a zoo and as a member I got the 9:30 am earlier start time. At the fall sale I'm going to sell so I can get first picks!

We did pick up a bunch of toys thanks to recommendations of on-the-spot moms (Hi, Rebecca!) with older kids.

Although not quite ready for it on their own both kids liked the rocking chair - especially when Husband made the chair rock.

And here is a photo that just came in from the nanny - and the kids are playing with their new toys! Shape sorters were one type I snagged and a toy with lots of things to spin and move.
What is that toy called with the wires in the background (that is mandatory at all doctor's offices?) - we got that at the sale too.

Books were also a good find - a nice cheap way to expand their library since I'm sick of reading the same ones. My new favorite is "Is Your Mama a Llama?" Ned laughs when I turn the page to reveal what type of animal it is.

What a cool looking rocking chair!! Score :)

And I totally laughed out loud at the "mandatory at all doctors offices" comment - I know what you mean!!

How cute. The rocking chair is a great find. You certainly can't go wrong on those MOT sales. When my guys were young, I was there.

Cute, cute, CUTE!!! Looks like you found some great stuff. Did you wind up getting a baby carrier?

Love twin sales! I hope the kids like the toys I recommended. :)

The Wakefield sale is this Saturday morning if you're up for another one.
