Bought and Found at the Estate Sale

Friday I stopped by a FABULOUS Estate sale in Overland Park Kansas.  Here's what I saw:

Nice house… beautiful fall leaves.

old ribbon, 1970's hallmark ribbon

My mom would put this kind of yarn-ribbon in my hair when I was a kid.

Old books and paintings.


I bought quite a bit of stuff.. but forgot to take a photo!  Hopefully I'll get that done after Trick or Treating tonight!

Book Sale.. Revisted..

A couple of weeks ago I went the Johnson County book sale. I've gone before, but #2 wanted to go with his new scanner. I tried to explain to him that the book sellers in Johnson County are SERIOUS…

This sell is WELL organized and has a great selection.

#2 is some where in this crowd…

I didn't take his "need" to become a book seller as serious as he he did… We didn't bring totes or anything to carry the books he wanted to buy in… Next time I'll remember..

American Girl Store Opening Overland Park Kansas

Last week was #3’s birthday.  I’ve never been one of those “birthday party” parents.  I just don’t have confidence in my party throwing abilities.  #3 loves anything that has to do with American Girl Dolls, so it was very lucky they decided to have their grand opening on her birthday weekend.

#3 and her Doll in front of the Grand Opening Sign.

We arrived at Oak Park Mall at 9:15 on Sunday.  I knew the first 200 people in line received a goody bag.  I hoped by arriving 3 hours before it opened would insure we got that bag!  We were given ticket numbers 91-94 which meant we were one of the first 200!  Now all we had to do is wait.. and take some photos.

Here’s #3 and two of her good friends with their American Girl Dolls.

This photo was taken around 9:30.. The first 200 hadn’t

been reached yet.

Here’s that same photo at 9:45..

Here’s what happened when you got there after 10:00.. you became

one of the first 400.  By the time it was 11:00 (when the store opened)

there were 800 people waiting behind us!

As we moved from inside the mall to outside the mall.. into

the American Girl Store.. you could see there was a large

police presence.   (Yes that’s a real gun on that policeman)..

As we were waiting to go inside this little boy walked by and

said; “They have policeman here? What are these girls gonna


I loved this light in the entryway to the store.

#3 Checking out the cool stuff.

She loved Lanie’s Camper.

Everyone with us wanted this blue dress.

Did you know you could get your doll’s hair fixed?

Just in case you wondered.. there were lots of these guys there too.

It’s not a shock to me that #3 bought this set.

I think she’s pretty excited. Happy Birthday #3.. I’m glad the American Girl Store had their Grand Opening on your birthday 🙂
