Sheila from Shenandoah and Stuff asked me what my children bought at Small Beginnings, the children only table at the IGMA show.
I am always very excited to see what they bought when we arrive home (no adults are allowed in the children's corner.) It even has a wall around it so you cannot see in (I should take a picture).
So here are their purchases.
They found some great stuff. Miniaturists are very generous with their donations to Small Beginnings.
The best find was this bed. My daughter found it. I think she found the chair there last year.
The covers are made by mother-in-law.
Here are my son's purchases (he is only 5). He first came out having only spent 80 cents.
I reminded him that he had a garden and he went back in and came out with these plants. That was a good find. He also found the really cute mailbox and the box of fruit. (The little mailbox has a flag that can stick up, so at Christmas time, I am planning to put some Christmas cards in there and put up the flag 😉)
He told the ladies who work that corner (they are very nice) that he had a castle dollhouse and they showed him this. At first he said no, because his castle was a much bigger size, but then when we were looking at the stalls outside and he saw something similar for much more, he said he wanted to go back and get it. I think they are very nice and his little boys can use them as toys.
Here are my daughter's purchases (although the fish tank was from the auction outside) and the blue stone was purchased from Artistic Florals by Arlene Finkelstein:
The train track is very cool:
She also found these lamps:
And some more animals:
She bought this fish tank from the auction (another mom outbid her but very kindly allowed her to get it)
And then outside the Children's Corner, I bought them each a dog and a fish bag, and Sofie also bought these flowers from Artistic Florals:
My son really wanted this armor that went for around $80 in the auction and some swords that were around $20 each, so that was too expensive. Instead I found these on eBay for him:
I particularly love the suit of armor.
Have a great weekend!
