It is FREEZING in Kansas City today. The snow held off for all of December, January, and most of February, but over the last week, we've had (a little) snow and very cold temperatures. It's so cold that the heater in our van can't keep up (or it might be going out on us, but I'm hoping that's not the case!)
Just Between Friends Consignment Sale every spring and fall. It is clearly marked on the calendar because this sale is how we afford birthday gifts, Christmas gifts, shoes, and more. The selection is SO big, that I have no problem finding what I need for four kids in the same size and being able to coordinate everything as well. Ah, my type A personality is so happy!
I decided to start in the movie section today. I normally go for the shoes first, but thought I'd see if there was anything fun that the kids might enjoy watching when school is out this summer. Oh. My. WORD. There were probably 30 Disney movies, new in box for just a few dollars! Aladin, Cinderella, Pocahantas, and many more. I picked out about $90 of movies that were worth about $200! I did end up whittling my selection down to about $40 of movies (because I found so much other stuff I had to get!), but my kids will be delighted that I bought everything from Disney's Cars to Princess Sophia, to Doc McStuffins to a new Mickey Mouse Clubhouse DVD to add to our collection!
Then I wandered for a bit to see what other fun things they had before buckling down in the shoes and clothing sections.
I found this ah-maz-ing dollhouse filling with furniture in the toy section. If only we had room in our house for something this cool! I couldn't stop thinking about how high quality, and big it was though. Plenty of room for all of the kids to play at the same time! And then I saw someone else wheel it out on a dolly. *sniff!* That's the only thing about these sales. If you see it and you like it, GRAB it! If you don't, someone will come along behind you and snatch up that great deal and you won't get another chance at it. That's my big piece of consignment sale advice for you today. "You snooze, you lose."
But happily, I found PLENTY to fill up my bag and our closets....SHOES!
And then, I just couldn't help myself. The little girl dresses! Oh my word. It's one of the best parts of having little girls! Right now, my girls are ALL about dresses. They consider themselves princesses when they can twirl around and have a dress billow out. It is precious! So I had to do a little "princess dress" shopping. I found SO many adorable sundresses and church dresses for $4 and $5. And then I came across these dresses:
I grabbed the pink one for $9 and the yellow for $12...both brand new! Now I just need some warm weather so that I can dress my girls up!
If you are in the Kansas City area this weekend, this sale is definitely worth stopping at! Don't worry, I left plenty of good stuff for you!
