I was absolutely in awe of what you can buy at the dollar store. . . for a dollar! An origami dinosaur kit! CUTE striped baby legwarmers! Martinelli apple juice jars, that, once emptied, made the perfect jar for emptying out the liquid in the glow sticks and making lanterns.
I got a whole watermelon. For a dollar! And a pint of locally grown strawberries, and about 20 other things.
