Junk Bonanza!

A Vintage Parcel had its debut as a vendor at Junk Bonanza. It was three days full of amazing junk, good conversations and lots of fun. Here are some photos of our booth.

We can't wait until Junk Bonanza in the Fall. We'll be back :)

Lego Party

We had a successful Lego Birthday Party for my 5 y.o. Alex. I did a lot of research (pinterest) and tried to find cool and inexpensive games, prizes and decorations. So I wanted to share my findings with others because I know Lego's are still as popular as ever!

I searched Amazon and Party City's websites. To my surprise Party City was actually less expensive for plates, cups and the wall decorations.

Alex wanted cupcakes with candy Lego's on top. His Grandma had given him candy legos before so I knew they existed. I found them on Amazon:

Candy Lego Bricks

They were the hit of the party!

For one of the activities I just filled a few bins with assorted legos and gave each kid a flat lego base and they just got to build for about 30 mins. The girls got bored before that time was up but the boys loved it!

Another easy thing was to fill a jar or vase with Legos and make a centerpiece. With older kids you could even have them all guess the number of legos in the jar and the winner gets to keep them. But with 4 & 5 years olds it was just a cool centerpiece.

It was a great party. Alex and his friends had a great time.
