I've often thought that if it weren't for consignment shops, Jael wouldn't have such a nicely stocked wardrobe. I had been eyeing a snowsuit for her at Target for $40 (coat and snowpants) when I found a Columbia set for only $14.99 at our local store. And it was in great condition, too!
Our other big find was these Robeez snowboots:
The price at Diapers.com is $38.95 and our pair were only $6.99. They will keep her feet nice and cozy this winter and are soft-soled for better walking development.
Our favorite local consignment shop here in Spokane is Other Mothers. We mostly shop at the north location, which has the largest store, and it's very nice to be able to bring in used clothing Jael has outgrown and receive credit towards her new items. We also sometimes brave the monthly quarter sale, which means a crowded room of mothers madly pawing through mountains of clothes and shoes. It's worth it, though, when I leave with three pairs of Robeez shoes for only a quarter apiece and several play shirts for Jael to wear next summer!
