365 Days of Weird & Wild & Awesome 2nd Hand Store Finds!

This blog started on Feb 2nd, 2011. I will be sharing 365 days of the amazing things I spot at 2nd hand stores. From the awesome and handy things for around the house, to the weird and wtfs that show up on the shelves of 2nd hand shops.

My name is Wendy. I’m a mom of 2 boys. I started the Roller Derby in Kitsap County with help from my BFF, Brandy and some of the gals over in Tacoma’s Dockyard Derby Dames. Sadly, I’m on hiatus due to several personal reasons. I miss it, a lot…and I miss my size 9 jeans. Thank god for 2nd hand stores to see me through my gaining weight phase after stopping Roller Derby. Meh, I’ll be back soon. Need new skates…I know where to keep looking!

Kal-El, my 9 year old is autistic and struggles with it everyday. He’s creative, intelligent (in the non-traditional way) and shocks me everyday with what he CAN achieve, not with what he can’t!

Anakin is 12 and he’s my nerd legacy. I love this kid, how enthusiastic he gets about science, geeky things and how much he really shows his nerdy passions. He wears his heart on his sleeve and he’s totally one of the best kids evar!

I’m currently part-time employed and trying to start my own business, http://www.whosgotthebutton.com, a custom button business. Please feel free to order custom buttons from me as it keeps my wallets full so I can feed my kids and purchase crafty supplies from 2nd hand stores so I can make creative things and share them on this blog (and also sell them).

Thanks for reading everyone! Please comment on my blog so I know that you are reading and really getting something out of what I write.
