....til we DROP.

It's that time of year again. We have bins full of toys no longer played with, clothes that no longer fit, and baby items that are bigs have sadly outgrown. It's SELLING TIME! All of the kids consignment sales around here happen twice a year, once at the end of summer/early fall, and once at the end of winder/early spring. I sell and buy. Oh my, do I buy! I am a bit obsessed with kids sales and consignment stores. I can honestly say that I buy 95% of MY clothes and my kids clothes/toys/etc. at sales. I can spend around $300 and not only fill my truck, but get everything that I need for the whole season for two kids, including toys, games, books, and stuff that I don't need so much. It's wonderful. And if you know me, you know that when I talk about the Wee-Sale (our most popular local sale) that my whole face lights up and I become very animated and talk super fast. What can I say? I do so love a good bargain. And I really love to shop...especially when I have a bunch of cash to spend. Ha! Ok, so here is the lineup for the spring sales:

Of course there are many more, but these two are my standards. It's pretty sad then the girls at Oz know my consigner number when they see me. I'm there that often. I'm just an awesome customer!

Happy shopping my friends. You will surely see me at the Wee-Sale. I'll be the one running around with two huge Ikea bags hanging from my arms, kicking a toy or two down the aisle, some over sized something swinging under my arm, dripping sweat, and looking dazed. Hey, that's the price I pay to save some moolah and get some fab finds! See you there :)
