we had lots of fun out at the alameda antique fair last weekend. i picked up a few appliques and things for future diapers, but the real finds this month were all for lucy. lucky girl--i hadn't planned on buying her a single thing!
isn't lucy's new boombox the cutest thing ever? you know you're getting old when "antique" applies to toys you used to own yourself, but what can you do? the vendor picked up on lucy's(and possibly my own) adoration of this non-battery operated toy, and gave it to her for free. we did drop some cash in his booth on a few other things, but still, it was a completely unexpected and appreciated gesture!
next we stumbled across a massive box of vintage baby clothes being sold for $1-$2 per piece. it was an unheard of bargain for that particular venue (most pieces are at least $5-$15), so i snatched up a few. lucy's closet is totally overflowing with vintage frocks, or i would have gotten more. here are a few of my favorites...
someone's fingers have been on the camera lens... wonder who?
the greatest thing about vintage clothes is that they are cut very roomily to fit cloth diapers. lucy hasn't worn a pair of jeans in months--they simply won't fit over her big fluffy bottom!
