Kids Kloset Again

I am so glad I worked kidskloset again this year. I was able to get Brooke some really nice things. For those who don't know about kidskloset, it is a consignment that comes around two times a year. People bring their kids clothes, and toys to the sale. If you volunteer 6 or 9 hours of working the sale then you get to shop before the public and before the consignors. I worked this year and I am so glad I did. I got to shop this afternoon. I loaded up on Brooke. Courtney is at the age where I really can't find much. I was not so lucky with her. When Courtney was younger I always would shop kidskloset for her. You can get some really nice things. I am not one to go pay $50.00 to $100.00 for a dress for my girls. They grow out of them so fast. I can go to kids kloset and buy them a $100.00 dress for $10.00 or $15.00. Many times I get things less than that. For casual clothes you can do very good also. If you want big toys, or furniture for the children you can get that also. I usually just shop for clothes for the girls. I also put my girls clothes in the sale. Basically it is like trading their clothes for more clothes. Sometimes I make more than I spend, and sometimes I spend a little bit more than I make. Over all I do great. It is so funny to watch the workers at the worker sale. Kevin said he would love to have a tape of how crazy we all are. Many people start lining up a hour or two before the sale. The owners have changed the rules to make it more fair. They pass out cards or popsicle sticks. They have like 4 colors. You get in line and then they draw a color. If it is your color your group gets to go first. I was in the second group tonight. People was running trying to get to a big item, or something they would like to have. If you have never been to one of these sales, you really need to do it at least once. It is so funny. My adrenaline is pumping so fast. I am so excited about what I might find. I am also nervous that I want find anything. It is so crazy and wild. It is really fun though. I also enjoy working at the sales. It is nice to see old friends, and meet new ones. Here are some pictures of some of the goodies I bought tonight. Don't ask me how much I spent!!!!!! LOL
I thought these two was so cute.

Lady bugs and bees.
Two diaper bags, I got for $5.00 each. I have always wanted the ladybug one, but did not want to pay $40.00 for it. ( That was the price in the shops)
I love the Smocking on these.
Three of my favorites.
A couple more.
