Just Between Friends sale
This week is the Just Between Friends sale, which has very quickly become one of my favorite kids’ consignment sales!
You won’t believe the size of or selection at this sale until you experience it yourself.
This is the ultimate consignment treasure hunt, friends. Except a really, really well-organized one. Bring your “A” game, thrifters. You’ve hit the big time inside these doors.
The Just Between Friends sale, which happens twice a year, is run like a well-oiled machine, thanks to two pros at the helm, a ton of well-trained volunteers and scores upon scores of consignors. In fact, last year they were named Franchisee of the Year.
I was on the lookout for fall and winter clothes this time around and I did not leave disappointed.
I was able to find a few sweaters for my son (see photo above) from Gap and Gymboree, for $6 to 8 each. They’re in great condition. One of my favorites this time around is the H&M varsity jacket for $6.50. This is actually made of very soft jersey cotton, so it’s much more comfy than a traditional varsity jacket, but it’ll still serve as a good outer layer for fall.
How adorable is this bright pink corduroy dress from Mini Boden? Similar pinafore dresses still sell for $48. I snagged this one – in perfect condition – for only $4. Total score!
I’m pretty stoked about this Gymboree parachute! Visions of my elementary school gym classes are swimming in my head, as I picture demonstrating the fine techniques of playing “popcorn” with plastic balls on top, making waves or the classic parachute tag, running to switch places with someone across the way.
I’m also excited to have found this Gears! Gears! Gears! Super Set! This has been on our wish list for a year or so. It’s regularly $50, so we’ve been holding off… and I’m SO glad we did. This was only $15 – and will be great for playdates and rainy afternoons!
I’m just thrilled with the purchases I found this week. You absolutely need to stop by to check out the sale for yourself, if you’re local to the Philadelphia area.
If you’re headed there yourself, today (Friday) is definitely the day to go. Crowds are generally smaller today and they’ve even hired a face painter for FREE face painting from 11 to 2 p.m. to help keep the kiddos excited.
