"roll on family, roll on along..."

A few Sundays ago, there was a garage sale in our neighborhood, and I wasn't going to stop the car until I saw a double stroller in the driveway for sale.
Target aquired! Beep beep beep!
One lady said 15 bucks and then the other one said 20, since I'm not a negotiator (sorry Mom!) I bought it for 20. Plus, I think they needed the money.
It had a few problems, it obviously had been sitting outside for while, etc.

So I pulled the duct tape off of it, unscrewed the canvas off (not easy), washed it, sewed it up in a few places and a few replacment screws here and there, new clear coat on the kick plate, and it's a beauty.

Bonus:It fits in my trunk, I didn't think it would. I thought I was gonna have to wheel it a few blocks back our house that day, but it fits!

We tried it out this morning on our walk, with baby C in one side and a big plush polar bear in the other side. :)



I didn't think to take any "before" photos, but these are the "after"s.

How cool that it's purple! Good Cha-Ching. You can find anything if you just look around long enough. Good "design-on-a-dime" skill usage. That's my Charlie!
