Since Luke was born, I've totally gotten into the whole consignment sale thing. I've found it's a great way to get lots of cloths for near nothing and that way I can get a WHOLE lot more!! I love to shop anyway, and this way I'm getting more for my money! As if I didn't already LOVE this way of clothing Luke, it's even BETTER now since I've got a girl to shop for too! The selection for girls is usually about double that of the boys! FUN, FUN, FUN!
Well, we're coming up on fall consignment sale time! YIPPEE! I've decided this year to be a consigner as well as a consignee! So I've spend the last couple of weeks - off and on - working on going through Luke's cloths, hanging them, labeling them and getting them ready to sell. It's been fun, but I'm getting down to the wire and need to finish all of it up so I can drop them off on Monday morning. It seems like a TON of stuff, and honestly David may have to help me take it to the church on Monday evening!
My wonderful sister-in-law is coming on Thursday and she'll look through Avery's cloths and take whatever she things she may want or be able to use for Reagan eventually, and then whatever she doesn't take I'll be selling as well!
If you don't shop consignment sales for your children's cloths (or yard sales are good too!) you should! I have the information for a few of them in my area, I'll list those below and as I get more I can post that information also! If you’re not in my area - usually you can check with local church preschools to see if they have sales. Lots of them do!
