I have mixed feelings about writing this post . . . of course I want to tell you all about my wonderful experience at the Twice is Nice Consignment Sale, but I also want to keep this sale all to myself : ) I was pleasantly surprised by the amount of nice clothes for sale Saturday morning (after a full day of early shopping for consignors, volunteers, and teachers) as well as the short line for checkout! It was a stress-free shopping experience, and I found some great clothes for Callum (oh yeah, and I only spent $38.00).
Although I was up before the sun, I didn't quite make it to the sale at 7:30; fortunately, I was able to walk straight in and begin shopping with the other military moms. The first few tables were full of toys, but I had bigger fish to fry (one of my favorite southern expressions). I quickly spotted the winter jackets and rushed to see if there were any vests in my kid's size (have I told you how cute he looks in a puffy vest). I found a navy vest that was super cute but might be too big for this season : (
This sale was well organized - I really liked the pink and blue balloons they used to indicate the boys' and girls' sections (although I didn't see them until I was leaving). I was a little disappointed with the handmade signs used to label the sizes . . . they were small and hard to see from far away (you know how focused I am while consignment shopping). I finally found the 2T boys' section and started grabbing almost everything I saw (that's how nice the clothes were). I did get a little sidetracked when I bumped into an old friend, but it was nice to catch up and talk about our little ones. I ended up buying some great athletic clothes, long sleeve tops, and pants to add to Callum's wardrobe. Here's the best part . . . most of the items were $2.00-$4.00 WHAT!?!?!?
This sale was really great, and I will definitely be going back! It was calm, organized, and full of nice kids' clothes. The toy section was a little sparse, but we don't really need anymore toys at my house (so no love lost). There weren't really a lot of baby items either (once again, not my focus at the moment). If you're looking to build up your kid's wardrobe without spending a small fortune then this is a good place to start. These ladies have their system down pat, and I would like to add another WIN in my column : )
