Year without buying New Clothes- Trip Number 2

You can read about my journey to not buy any "new" clothes in this post. Also my first shopping trip of the year can be found in this post.

But this weekend I went to one of the most AMAZING children's Consignment sales EVER!! No lie. It's the bomb. I have been going since I was pregnant with my first child who is now 7. I've posted about it before,
but I'll tell you all about it again.

Rhea Lana's.
It's awesome.

I took this picure from their facebook page. You may notice it is all pink. That's because this is just the girl side. They have just as many boys clothes. They also have maternity clothing, toys, books, baby gear like strollers, wraps, cribs, etc. It's a one stop shop folks, for real.
Since it is a consignment sale, that means that moms put their things in it to make money. I consign the kids clothes from the year before that don't fit, and typically make almost if not more than I spend.
 
 
 
They are located in 22 States now, so please check them out if you have kids you like to buy for. I love it because:
- I'm getting adorable gently used clothing at great prices
- I know I'm helping out other families by buying their old clothing
- I like the idea of being able to buy used, instead of expending additional resources by getting things brand new, plus they are staying out of a landfill.

  1. Yeah consigment sales! We are in the season here for them which is great for us. We also got some toys at the last consignment sale which were super great deals that we set out from Santa. Love, love, love them. Sadly, this one doesn't come to VA :)
