This morning, our local "Once Upon a Child" consignment shop had a huge blow out sale - anything on clearance you could fit into one of their plastic shopping bags would be charged as $10 total.
Yes, $10. Now, the prices there are typically reasonable (considering many things still have tags on them), but everything for $10? Time to get shopping.
I showed up before they opened at 10am and there was already a line of eager pregnant ladies and Moms (kids in tow). For a visual, I must mention that this is not a big store. Its a little shop with A LOT of stuff crammed into it. When they opened and handed out the bags the scene was a little reminiscent of Black Friday.
Despite not knowing whether we're having a boy or a girl, I think I made out pretty well. I ended finding quite a few gender neutral outfits (or at least what I would consider gender neutral). I even found things in the 12 months size that would work for a boy or a girl! I snagged 5 pairs of overalls, 6 pairs of jeans, 19 onesies/sleepers, and 12 outfits (tops and bottoms) between 0-12 months. Many items were name brand (Eddie Bauer, Osh Kosh, Gap, etc.) and some still had tags on!
Don't worry, you're not crazy. There are some outfits in there that are definitely for a boy or definitely for a girl. Towards the end of my shopping spree I had a little more room in my bag (somehow) and managed to squeeze in some adorable dresses and shirt/pant sets. I couldn't resist!! There aren't many and, hey, we'll end up using half of them.
My total came to $10.50 with $198.50 worth of discounts applied. Score. My mother would be proud.
