Nice As New

In case I have never said it before, I LOVE RESALE SHOPS!!

Who ever says that they won't shop there because it isn't new, is an idiot and has waaaaay too much money on their hands.

Yesterday, I walked into Nice As New (my favorite consignment shop) and found this:
It is almost new, and came with the Serta crib mattress for $24. Yup, that is what I said.

Today I went in to find this:
I paid $16.50.

Oh. My. Gawd.

I bought Mark a winter coat with matching snow pants for $14.50. Brand new with the tags on them.

I bought myself a Columbia 4-season jacket with the removable fleece lining/jacket, gently used for $26.50.

I bought Gabriel new clothes for his new office postion. 5 pairs of Dockers, black leather shoes, 6 polos of various brand names, 3 shorts sleeve button ups, and 4 long sleeve button ups for under $1oo.

Plus, I have stuff on consignment there, so almost every purchace is $5 or so off the top.

All those checks that Simalac and Enfamil send me every month, go to buying formula that goes on consignment for pure profit.

Have I mentioned that I love resale shops??

Cool finds! I love resale shopping! Sadly it cannot be done where I live at the moment ... I cannot wait to MOVE!

Ah, thank you. Thank you for reminding me. I used to go to consignment stores all the time until I moved. Now you've inspired me to seek out consignment stores here.

I'm with you on the shops! I LOOOOOVE them. I've never understood people who say they would NEVER shop there. Whatever is right :)

Cool finds. I love it. :)
