I had a fun time shopping at the preview sale at the Just Between Friends Sale in Oaks, PA this week. I got a media preview of the sale and was amazed at how much stuff was for sale at low prices!
Since it's almost spring, it was time for me to find a cute argyle sweater vest for the kiddo. Not only did I find a cute vest, but also a matching tie, which is the kiddo's favorite dressy items, since then he looks like daddy! I was also able to buy three bathing suits for the kid for $3.50 each! He is set for summer and swim lessons now. Another great find was a navy windbreaker from Gap for $3.50.
I big find for me this time were Legos. One gallon sized zipper bag filled was $6 and a box set of basic bricks was $6.50. For Easter I have been planning to fill those plastic Easter eggs with Legos instead of candy, since we STILL have Halloween candy. (He'll still get a small amount of candy in a basket, but we don't need 50 eggs filled with more!) I had been planning to buy a new box of Legos for filling the eggs, but the two packs of used Legos I bought at the Just Between Friends Sale is more than enough. I am thinking I'll wash them in a laundry bag in the dishwasher without the dry cycle to clean them.
My son approved of all the clothing items I purchased for him except for a pair of crazy plaid shorts that I thought were fun. I gave him one toy, and hid the Legos for now. I bought him a tool box kit to make from Home Depot that was $2. He loves going to the build-it clinics and this would give him a good project to make with his dad at home.
It was an amazing site to see a warehouse sized room filled with all kids and baby stuff! From strollers and car seats to Easter baskets and even new Melissa and Doug toys, there was everything needed for kids at great prices. Check out the sale this weekend if you are in the area!
