Last week, a friend and I went to Switch-A-Roos in Greenville. We worked a four hour shift on Tuesday (and got a sneak peek at some stuff) and then shopped early on Thursday. The sale I attended in March was much smaller than this one, so I was blown away by how much stuff they had! I was able to get three bigger toys for Thomas for about $20 total (two for Christmas and one for his birthday). The best deal was a very nice winter coat for $5! I also got him lots of long-sleeve onesies, sweaters, pants, and even a Halloween costume for $7 (he is going to be a pumpkin)! Unfortunately, I didn't get him any shoes, because most of the shoes were for little girls. Also, I need to trace his foot to make sure I get the right size.
If you have never shopped at a consignment sale, I would highly recommend it. There are usually two a year - one in the winter (Feb/Mar) to shop for spring/summer and one in the summer (Aug/Sept) to shop for fall/winter. You can volunteer to shop early and/or consign clothes. I'm not consigning anything yet, because I'm saving everything for another baby someday (assuming we have another boy).
