Yardsale, thrift and consignment Finds
I do love those yard sales! $1 Easter dress is GREAT! I found a pair of 2T jammies I left behind, but will probably go back to get Monday.
I went out today and hit a thrift store, consignment shop and yard sales. The consignments here are pretty expensive, so I wasn't sure I would find much, but at the two stores, everything I picked up was 50% to 75% off (to my surprise), so several baby sleepers, a pair of boy's shorts and a shirt were just 50-75 cents a piece.
I got one of those stand-up kickboxing bags for the boys and my hubby for $1 because the family at the yard sale couldn't get rid of the thing and offered it to me for $1.
I also got a $200 BRU cradle for $20. It had been through 2-3 kids, but was well taken care of. As much as I like new things, I know that after several years, this cradle won't be all chemically and yucky. The pad may need replacing, I haven't looked as close to that yet.
I just need somewhere to lay baby down when s/he isn't in a sling or can't be in arms, but refuse to buy something expensive or get a crib as our babies are always with me. So $20 works for me!
Now let's see if I use it or if it ends up being a catch all for baby stuff
