Resale mania!

There are several children's clothing resale events in the Fox Valley area over the next few weeks, and I am excited about every single one of them.  As you know, I am a big fan of resale, thrift stores, garage sales, etc.  It's a great way to find gently-used kids' clothes, supplies, housewares, books and more for a fraction of the original cost.

Little Miss, having just had a birthday, is all stocked up on spring and summer clothes. My Little Guy is a different story, though...he is growing like a weed and will probably need a all-new (well, new to us!) clothes for this summer.

Here's where you can find me searching for Boys 6-7 spring and summer clothes:
