It's no secret: I LOVE baby consignment sales.
My friend's sister introduced me to them when I was a few months pregnant.
My first experience was successful, and I was hooked from then.
I have no problem with used clothing/things. Most of my clothing growing up was hand-me-downs from my sisters, or donations from my mother's employers. I grew up shopping at thrift stores and Goodwill, and I still enjoy the hunt. It's like a treasure hunt... looking for that unique item that doesn't look used, and that is such a bargain... oh yeah I love the hunt!
Now at the baby sales, favorite things to buy are clothes and shoes. Especially play clothes... I refuse to pay full price for things that Luke will spit-up on and stain.. not doing it! 95% of his clothes are from consignment sales. The other 5% were gifts from friends and family, and I bought him a couple things that he needed right away.
I went to one last Thursday, and walked away with $150 worth of stuff.... ALOT of stuff... I basically have Luke outfitted until he's 3 years old (he's 8 mo. now)
Here are some examples of my favorite finds!
Two very cool onesies: $3.00
1 Very cool, modern hippo toddler bed-set from IKEA: $5.00
(included 1 pillow, 1 pillowcase, 1 fitted sheet, and 1 duvet cover! awesome! can't wait to use it!
