My First Consignment Sale Shopping

When I got out Ava's "too big" storage container a few nights ago, I couldn't believe all the shoes, pajamas, jackets, dresses, jeans, ect. that I've bought for her at yard sales & thrift stores!! You know 'out of sight, out of mind'? It is so nice to buy ahead and pay literally next to nothing for things! Well, I finally decided to try out the consignment sale scene as my sister and some friends have had great success; I mean Ava is four, and I'm just now going.

The area we live in has lots of children's consignments sales, so I went to one today called Lil Blessings. An entire church gym was filled to overflowing with neatly organized clothes, shoes, bedding, and children's accessories.

Here's what I got for $47:

Large turquoise hair bow, navy peacoat, two solid white shirts and a solid aqua shirt for monogramming/appliques (thanks to my fabulous sister;)
a monkey costume for my nephew, Reid.... can't wait to see him in this!
black flats with flower detail, Gigi God's Little Princess DVD, pink skirt (I've learned that these go with lots), dressy coat, casual dress

  1. How do you disinfect used shoes ? I always wash clothes and use alcohol on toys and books but what do you do for shoes ? Tracey
