Consignment Sales & Baby Clothes

Yesterday I went to another huge kids consignment sale with Jennifer Graham and it was SO.MUCH.FUN. Partly b.c I could finally purchase things now that I know for sure it is a boy, and also because they had some really nice stuff! Below are some Kissy Kissy things I got that are brand new for $7-$10. I got tons of little clothes and came right home and washed them up and then tagged them.

I have learned there is a great lender code amongst mommas and babies. You lend out your maternity clothes and baby clothes and gear etc. In preparation for that lending, I ordered these clothing tags from Mabel's Labels. They are tiny and go on the backside of the tags in clothes so you can mark your items for easy return ( they also come off easily if you want to sell). My mother generously loaned out all of my baby clothes that she SMOCKED to a woman, who instead of returning them SOLD them. What a jerk!
The thing about baby clothes, and baby stuff in general that I am learning is, it is all very printed and very busy. Finding plain stuff is not easy and definately not cheap. The one time in my life I am drawn to plain things, and they are outrageous! ha figures. So far the only plain clothes I can find are Ralph Lauren ( who I love , and Ralphie was named after), Kissy Kissy, & Restoration Hardware. Other suggestions mommas?

On another note:

Any of you that are fans of sites like One Kings Lane might enjoy these similar sites for Kids Stuff

I am with you about wanting some PLAIN stuff. I went yesterday to TJ Maxx (since I am having to start all over with blue stuff---we have no gender neutral stuff, only lots of PINK from the 2 girls). I found several Ralph Lauren baby boy things for cheap! I also love, love, love the blankets at Belk. They are not the small size like the majority of all newborn blankets. They also have cute, cute, cute colors (think: lots of blue, royal blue, and orange---stripes, polka dots, and plaid). I bought 2 blankets yesterday for $2.98 a piece. I plan on having them monogrammed. They are fleece and so, so, so warm. I used these when I had Harper Jane (of course in pink). I have used this one website for a few years and have been happy with the clothes for the girls.

They have plain John-Johns, sleepers, t-shirts, gingham shorts, etc. You do have to have a tax ID, but I'm sure you know someone that has one. I don't have a current price list but my sister is working on getting me one.

Sorry I just wrote a book for a comment, but I have been meaning to email these to you. I was a little disappointed in the clothing choices for boys b/c the majority of the clothes is really BUSY and I like plain. Let me know if you find any good deals:)

babies should wear rags and leaves and stuff.. our generation is insane, which in turn is going to make the next generation poor.
