Im' not sure where else to post this so here it goes. So I'm vegan and have always been. My kids dad's mom sent them leather boots after I specifically said for the umteenth time 'were vegan'. I even told her it was not a good idea to send them. But none the less she sent them. They stink. I'm not sure what to do with them. Should I take them to a thrift store? Sell them on craigslist? Put them here ffs?

You could do any of those things. I would take them to a children's second hand store so I could get credit and with it get something my kids really needed or liked and was vegan.

Sell them on ebay or craigslist and use the $ to get some adorable vegan shoes for your kids. hippie.gif

Ugh, my MIL did this too. THREE pairs of leather boots. But she was so happy about them that I realized I had never specifically told her that my DD and I don't wear leather. I just acted grateful and planned to throw them in the Goodwill pile, but MIL insisted on having a pair at her house so that she could "teach DD to wear boots." headscratch.gif Never mind that I didn't want hard-soled shoes for DD until two or so. So I just kept them and planned to explain our policy to her before more leathery gifts came along. 

 

I agree with P.J. Take them and get credit for them somewhere and swap them out for something else.
