Welcome to our playroom.

vintage playroom 5

It’s a happy place.

vintage playroom 4

It’s where our vintage fisher price toys live.

vintage playroom 6

They are classics.

vintage playroom 7

I found most of them on shopgoodwill.com. Did you know you can shop Goodwill online?

vintage playroom 8

Well, you can. It’s like an auction. You can choose a local goodwill and pick-up, or pay shipping for items coming from other locations across the country.

vintage playroom 9

Most of the fisher price items are sold in lots, so you can get some pretty good deals.

Also, if you know exactly what you are searching for it is a nice way to shop without driving all around town.

{collecting} vintage playroom

vintage playroom 1

When I started thrifting less than a year ago I also started some new collections.

vintage playroom 5

My collections are of items that I have always had a fondness of, but never knew how to find them…until I started thrifting.

vintage playroom 4

One of my favorite collections is my vintage fisher price collection.

vintage playroom 6

These toys come from the days of my youth. I am not sure I ever had any of them, nor do I recall playing with any of them (although I am sure I did at some point), but they take me back to when I was a little girl.

vintage playroom 12

I say it is my collection, but it is really for all of us…as are most of my collections.

vintage playroom

The toys fill the shelves in the playroom (remember the playroom…something I thought we would never have).

vintage playroom 8

vintage playroom 9

The kids, most days, will pull the vintage fisher price off the toy shelves before they choose any of the newer toys.

vintage playroom 25

For me, I love…

…it all just makes me happy!

vintage playroom 39

I imagine that these toys will go into the attic (or my creative cottage) to be stored until my own kids have children of their own.

vintage playroom 24

And, just like my kids do when they visit their grandparents in New York, they will play with the same toys that generations before them have been playing with.

When I come across duplicates of what we already have I put them into colton+cadence or post them for sale on instagram.
