The boys and I spent the afternoon scouring local thrift stores for 1940s era props for Trey's upcoming performance of "Guys and Dolls." We scored some great items at a little place called "The Clock Tower Thrift Shop" in Annandale. We ended up with four 40s style handbags, a large aged book, a walking cane, a silver tray, and a vintage Neiman Marcus hat box.
The boys were very good sports ... and I only had to say no to about 45 different 'finds' that they insisted they needed, including a 5-foot tall stuffed orangutan. :)
