John Deere Fleet from the Thrift Store

I've only been to one thrift store this month and Gavin was with me.
We stopped there after he had been to story time at our public library and before it was time to pick up Elizabeth at her baby preschool.
We did not see much downstairs,  but when we got upstairs to the toy room, we saw all these John Deere tractors.  

Gavin likes tractors a lot!
He lives in the country  and his parents have a real John Deere tractor.

We got his whole fleet plus a bag of pompoms and a package of rose wallpaper border for $8.
Very good bargain, I think.    

Elizabeth lives in town but she likes tractors too, she likes to roll the tractors on the floor.

have you found any good thrift store things this month?

  2. Rhonda, you find the greatest deals at your thrift stores. The John Deere items are a steal for $8. We are all big JD fans around here. Ryan Allen has several put up and then Jaymees husband Ryan and his dad are huge collectors of JD stuff the toy stuff and real stuff! The kids will get alot of use out of them. When Ryan and nephews were small I made little feed bags from jeans and put corn inside. (also used rice and popcorn seed) Sewed 3 sides and then the top I really sewed shut several times but made it look like how you just rip a bag open. My the mini tractors and wagons I cut the seams of jeans into little pieces to resemble sacks.

    1. Hi Lana, Gavin would love some little sacks of feed to haul around in the trailers, thank you so much for the idea.
      I don't know if you can tell from the picture but he got 5 tractors and 4 trailers in that thrift store haul. I don't think you can even buy the little size John Deere tractor new for $8.
      It is always nice to hear from you!
