What Time is It?! JBF Time!!

It's that time of year again! 

Consignment sale shopping!!

Ever since I was pregnant with Lily, this has become one of my favorite sports! Sports?! Yes, sports! If you're doing it right, you're sweating when you leave!

I've been going to the Just Between Friends Pittsburgh sale for the last 3 plus years and it continues to remain my favorite!  The volunteers who are working, the people who run the sale, the organization of the entire event both before and in the actual venue are unmatched.

Last Spring, I was newly pregnant with this little baby girl who is about to grace our lives in the next 6 weeks and my main goal was to find a sit and stand stroller for her and LilySeriously the bargain of the day for me!! 

Y'all know how quickly kids outgrow clothes, right?  Why buy them new when someone else already has and decided to consign them.  You won't find ripped, stained, blemished clothing at this sale.  No one would know most of Lily's clothes come from a consignment sale if I wasn't bragging about it! 

I love a bargain and the JBF sale is the place to go!  Toys, books, clothing, bigger outdoor toys, sports equipment, baby items like strollers {duh}, bouncy seats, boppies, potty chairs...and so on and so on and so on.

I'm cutting it close on finding newborn, 0-3month, and 3-6month stuff for this baby... she and Lily are wrong seasons for the teeny stuff, so I will definitely be there for sleepers and long sleeved onesies and hopefully a newbie Halloween costume!  Here's hoping I don't have her that weekend!!
