With that said, yesterday I went to my first kids consignment sale! It was a blast and super popular. It started at 7:00pm, I got there at 7:15 but could not find parking so I sat in the lot for about 15 minutes watching people carry out all kind of cool baby items. I wanted to scream "hey save me something." I seriously considered leaving my car in the lot or parking in the handicapped space so I didn't miss the sale (I didn't, don't worry). Finally someone moved, but then someone tried to take my space. I had to yell out of my window, "Hey, I'm waiting for that space!" Did I mention this sale was held at a church? Nice huh! LOL But, if I'm nothing I'm persistent! I got into that sale and found Baby I some great items (almost all new or like brand new) all for $67! I also saw I missed some great items, but there are other consignment sales in the city periodically and I'll be ready next time. This sale is on my calendar for next year and for the fall! Once I find out about a good sale I never miss it twice! LOL
So what did I buy? I lucked up on crib sheets from Pottery Barn (there was a whole great pottery barn crib set and even rug there, but that just seemed way too easy, I feel like I need to suffer through my indecisiveness about colors and decor much longer!), blankets, onsies, a dress, Robez, a pair of Stride Rite Shoes for when she is 2 they were to cute to pass up (sorry Tracey), toys, a little chair for picnics or for her to watch Mommy play Flag Football, a little overnight bag pillow
for her to carry and a few other small items. On Thursday the sale goes 50%, I plan on going back to buy things for the orphanage.
Now, the big question is, will this make me move any faster with my dossier? Probably not...but you never know. LOL
