Consignment and Thrift Stores

My husband and I waited later in life to get married, me in my late 20s him his late 30s. We decided to have children just a few years after being married in order to watch them grow up while still young enough to keep up with them. We on purpose-accidentally conceived our second child when our first was just 6 months old. Honestly, we thought it might take longer to conceive. No oops though, I LOVE being pregnant and have a wonderful husband who turned into a fabulous father. All that being said, of course I want what's best for my children but with two little ones we have to shop wisely. We share baby clothes with friends and family and I buy most of their toys and clothes second hand. My boys don't know the difference! I rarely pay full price for ANYTHING. For my mommy friends nearby I've compiled a list of places to shop and consign. Anyone outside our area with great local options, please feel free to share and I'll post to this page.
