Two stores, two hours and $29, that's all it took. Don't bother trying to find any wooden toys in the South Whidbey Island thrift stores, my mom and I cleaned them out. Burl's collection of wooden toys is quickly growing, and so is the thrill I get from finding them. On our list of discoveries yesterday: a wooden recorder, a vintage xylophone, two wood chairs, an animal bus and Noah's ark, both with all kinds of animals, a tic-tac-toe game, two cars, a shape sorting cube, gardening tools, and an alphabet puzzle. It was indeed a thrilling thrifting day.
