why I buy on consignment and why you should, too.

Radioflyer Pink Trike, Bench, WagonCheck out most of our Hugs and Kisses haul! Above find my favorite finds- The Pink Radioflyer Tricycle, a hand painted bench/step stool for the bathroom and a pink doll wagon, that Madeline can fit in, too!

Child Safety Gear

Some baby-proofing gear- girl is getting into everything lately!

Sink Reacher

A faucet extender, so my tiny tot can read the sink to wash her hands.

18-24 Month Summer Clothes

A few Old Navy tank tops and a pair of shorts to round out Maddie’s 18-24 month wardrobe going into spring and summer.

2T Dresses

Maddie never needs new dresses (since she has been given so many), but I couldn’t help adding a few more to her 2T wardrobe- Unknown, Polo, Ralph Lauren, and Old Navy.

2T Shirts

2T Shirts from Gap, Old Navy and Carters.

2T Pants

2T Pants from Carters, Old Navy, Jordache and Garanimals.

Baby Shoes 5 and 6

I killed in shoes. These shoes bought new would have been over $100.
Back Row (Size 6): Crocs (like new), Converse, Childrens Place
Front Row (Size 5): NWT Keens, Saucony, Stride Rite

Time Spent: 4.5 hours
Estimated Cost New: $400
Total Spent: $169 (this includes tax, which why do they tax you on people’s used items that they have already been taxed on??)
Total Earned Back From My Consigned Item Sales: $28

Crushed it. Can’t wait for the fall sale!

  2. I love it all! And I wanna go!
