This past Saturday, My sister and I took a trip with the little one to Red Bank Battlefield in National Park NJ. An important battle was fought here during the Revolutionary war, and the area is now part of the Gloucester County, NJ Park System. My daughter loved the playground and refused to get off the swing (insert 2 year-old temper tantrum here) Despite this, it was a beautiful day to get out and enjoy nature, after weeks of torrential rain and heat waves!
We also got to visit an awesome thrift store called Glassboro Thrift Village. To say they had everything would be a understatment! I especially liked the “free” items they had out front. They happened to have a chair marked free and I was very excited to see it! I have been for sometime, searching for a spare chair seat. I have a great chair I have been wanting to restore with a broken seat. I scooped up this “free chair” and was amazed at all the great items they had inside. This would be a great place to get furniture for college students or people just starting out. I picked up a few future crafting items and a magna doodle for my daughter for a dollar. They also support local charities with a portion of their sales. I want to go back here sometime in the future to take a more thorough look around. Can’t wait to get started on a few new projects this week!
