Winters in central PA are never consistent.
When the northeast gets pounded with snow, we either get walloped or we miss the excitement completely. Last year, we barely had any snow, but in 2010 our street looked like this:
My kids LOVE to play in the snow, but I really hate to spend a lot of money on snow gear, because we just never know what kind of winter weather we’ll get here in the center of the state. This year, my older daughter outgrew last year’s snow boots and my younger daughter outgrew her snow pants and there’s snow in our upcoming weekend forecast.
So instead of heading to a retail store, I hit my favorite thrift store (on a Wednesday for their 50% off sale) to see if I would have any luck.
Luck is definitely what I found! Brand new, size 3, girls snow boots and gently used black overall snow pants in size 6. That’s not just luck, that’s hitting the jackpot! With the 50% off sale, both items were each $2.50.
Whew! A snow crisis has be averted.
