Last week I shopped at Just Between Friends in Fort Worth. You all know how much I love these sales. I once again found some great deals. I wasn’t able to find the top 2 items (toy box or video monitor) but I found pretty much everything else on my list.
I wanted to share with you some of my favorite finds! The best deal I think was the Lily Pultzer dress that retails for close to $100…I got it for $4! I don’t know if most people in Texas even know who Lily Pultzer is…but being a beach girl, her clothes are everywhere during the summer on Cape Cod. I couldn’t pass this up!
I also found this cute Whale Watching Club sweater from Gymboree w/ Anchor shorts. I mean really? How cute is this. It will be perfect for our summer whale watch trip when we go up to Cape Cod for summer vacation. The back of that sweater has the sailor square collar too!
I found some other pretty dresses, including the flower one in the middle for our annual Texas Bluebonnet pictures! I think the colors will go well in the bluebonnet fields this spring.
Other than clothes, shoes are always a must have. I hate paying $15-$30 at the store for shoes. I just can’t do it. So when JBF comes around, I try to get everything I can. I was able to get 6 pairs. Sneakers, 3 sandals, 1 sparkly shoe (because every girl should have sparkly shoes, right?) and some swim shoes for summer vacation, the spray park and the pool.
My favorite shoes? The Minnie Mouse Adidas. Lennox loves Minnie Mouse and was very excited to see these come home!
Up next? Toys! I got some books, a few board games, Melissa & Doug kits and the best deal in toys? Lalaloopsies! Lennox loves Lalaloopsy (we are even planning on that being her birthday theme). If you aren’t familiar with their toys, they do NOTHING, they are plastic and they just lay there. But they are so cute! But.. expensive. One Lalaloopsy can cost anywhere from $30-$50! I was able to find 5 Lalaloopsy’s ranging in price from $4-$7. SCORE! I even found her favorite.. Pillow Featherbed. She is discontinued and wayyyy too much money on eBay, so for $4 that was a great find. I have only given her 2 of them, one for a potty training reward and the rest will come out over time (a long with a lot of the other toys) or for her birthday. So here is the breakdown and total price:
Bjorn Potty Chair
6 Pairs of Shoes
4 Swim Wear
2 Sets of Arm Floats
3 School Uniforms
2 Hair clips
Bag Play food for kitchen
11 NEW potty training underpants
2 My Little Pony’s
2 My Little Pet shop
2 DVDs (blu-ray)
4 Melissa & Doug items
Wonder Pets Toy
Total Items: 78
Total Price: $265
I think I did pretty good! I have also sold more than I spent, so I would call that a success! If you shopped a consignment sale lately, what was your best deal?
