my first consignment sale

i went to my first consignment sale recently.

pure craziness, i tell you! 

i was so nervous.

but, i came away with so many great deals 
that i see many more of these sales in my future.

here is a picture of everything i purchased...

 toys, toys, and toys' galore.
i honestly can't say no to a good deal.
have buying all these toys i came home and price compared...
and i got some darn good deals on toys. 

my favorite outfit i bought for the babe is this...

precious. might be a front runner for his family pictures outfit.

and my favorite purchase of the weekend...

 micah's first converse.  (like new)
retail: $26 (ish) consignment price: $7!

all in all:

15 children's books
20 winter/fall outfits (carters, the gap, ralph lauren, etc.) 
((can you tell i am a sucker for my baby boy in stripes))
converse tennis shoes
gap red converse shoes
10 play toys.
foam puzzle playmate

i paid: $150 (give or take a few dollar bills)
retail: i can't even begin to estimate. alot!

pretty good for my first consignment sale experience.

**i am taking a break for blogging for a week.
spending some time finishing up some posts that have been waiting to be published
and 
gaining some much needed inspiration and insight.
