Rew loves airplanes! My dh is hoping that one of his children will finally follow in his footsteps, so he does not mind that I indulge Rew's interest. I searched on ebay for airplane videos and stumbled upon some Jay Jay The Jet Plane videos. I was pretty sure Rew would enjoy them but at $3.99 + $3.00 s/h I didn't want to chance it. I decided to add Jay Jay videos to my thrift store/garage sale list. On my next thrift store trip I found 6 Jay Jay videos priced at .99 each. If I had been really frugal I would have bought him one, instead I bought them all for a total of $5.94, still less than the price of one on ebay.
I don't begrudge the price for the videos on ebay. It is a fair price and shipping is expensive. If I had known then how much Rew would like these videos I might have paid that price to buy one. I think ebay is a great resource and will use it again, but only after I have looked locally first.
What treasures have you found at the thrift store?
