Just Between Friends Shopping Round 3

Holy smokes did this summer fly by? We were constantly on the go and I felt like I never got a moment to catch my breath. Now that we are into the second week of school over here I’m feeling a little better. We are getting into a routine and I can finally get caught up. On life.

Because the summer was so hectic I really didn’t do much Fall clothing shopping. The first weeks of schools the babes wear their summer clothes anyways so not a big deal. Lucky for me I was invited to shop the Fall Just Between Friends sale again! I love that I can grab a TON of clothes that are in great used condition and not break the bank doing so.

For those that don’t know Just Between Friends is a consignment style mom to mom sale. Items are organized by size and priced 50-90% below retail. I love that there are no crazy lines and no sorting to find the size you are looking for.

Here are some of the clothing items that caught my eye! Tons of name brands at reasonable prices! That dress on the bottom right is one that Giada wore for Thanksgiving a few years back. It brought back so many memories!

I mean look at all these shoes!!  I just love shoe shopping!

Here is the girl stuff I picked up ranging in sizes from 3t to 4t. At prices this good I like to shop current sizes and the next size up.

I picked up a few staple items for Ari too! I about died when I saw this wool Gap coat in his exact size. I mean Gap jackets NEVER go on sale, coupons don’t apply, and are usually pushing $100. When I saw this for around $10 I snatched it up!

Clockwise from upper left; Gap wool coat, under armor lightweight jacket, Gymboree thick knit shirt.

I mean, I think homeboy likes it!

Now that I have a brand new Kindergartener I also grabbed a few Level 1 readers at a great price!

I love that there are no crazy lines and no sorting to find the size you are looking for. Best part? I was able to be in and out in just about 30 minutes! I can’t say that for a normal mom to mom sale! Usually I spend so much time hunting for the tables that have my size I really waste a lot of time!

Not only are there racks of name brand clothes, but there are also toys, gently used books, strollers, maternity clothes, and other baby items!

First let me start by saying that as the babes get older I find it harder and harder to buy second hand clothes. Bigger kids are harder on their clothes and they just aren’t as nice as the little sizes. Tonight I found some LIKE NEW stuff!
For Ari:
{Tucker & Tate plaid shirt, Carters Camo shirt, Cherokee lightweight hoodie, 2 pairs of Carters pants in amazing condition, a Gap Star Wars tee, and Keen sandals}

FullSizeRender

For Giada:

{4 Cherokee brand dresses, a Gymboree dress, a pair of Keen sandals, an Old Navy denim flutter top, and two pairs of fun summer shorts}

I think this one is my favorite with the tulle peeking out the bottom. It’s going to look adorable on her in the summer!

I bought this one in a size 4 and I think it will be perfect for Fall. It has little foxes on it!

IMG_9641

There you have it. 15 pieces of clothing + 2 pairs of shoes for $53. …. and it only took my 30 minutes to find it all! I call that a mom win!
