I’ve been busy the past few days preparing a bunch of my baby/kid clothes and some maternity clothes for the Just Between Friends sale this weekend in town. It’s a HUGE sale with over 300 consignors and 20,000 items.
I have never consigned stuff there before, but I did shop the sale last year and bought a ton of stuff for Julian (all of which he’s outgrown, of course).
Tonight is the presale for consignors and I’m hoping to score some good stuff, mostly some summer clothes for the kids and maybe some other things like play equipment for the yard or perhaps a double stroller. We’ll see. I was there this morning dropping off my clothes and there is so much stuff. I actually bought some HABA wooden rattle/teethers directly from my friend while we were there. The sale hasn’t even started and I’m already spending my cash. I’m sure I could spend a fortune there if I didn’t restrain myself.
While we are undecided if we will have more kids, I decided to go ahead and part with a bunch of the baby/kids’ clothes taking up room in our house. (Less we’ll have to move to a new house someday, right?) I saved some for sentimental reasons, but I figure it’s pretty easy and not that expensive to buy more baby clothes (used/consigned) in the future should we have the need. Might as well clear some of the stuff out of our house in the meantime. I also donated some of our clothes to our local Attachment Parenting International group who’s using the profits from the sale to buy AP books to stock our local libraries.
