Our Mother's Day shopping spree for the new baby girl was quite successful and so much fun!
After searching online for baby stores in our area we headed up to Manhattan Beach where there were four baby stores (plus Pottery Barn Kids) in a 2 block area. Our intention was to just look around and maybe pick up an outfit or two for fun.
The first store we found was a re-sale store (much to our surprise) and it turned out that they were having a 50% off sale for Mother's Day. How great is that? So instead of prices like $3.99 and $1.99 (already a steal, right?) our purchases ranged from .50 to $3.00 for the most expensive item. The clerk had to ring us up in two transactions because we bought so many things! Total price for 38 items: $76.96.
It was fun to see the kinds of clothing that my daughter chose - the colors and the styles she liked. She had definite likes and dislikes. This was one of her favorites:
We found a lot of Ralph Lauren Polo, some Gymboree, Carters, L.L.Bean, and quite a few upscale designer brands. I remember buying my daughter's baby clothes before and after she was born and spending a lot of money on clothing she barely wore. We were thrilled that we were able to find such darling clothes for so little. The clothes were all in good shape (barely worn) and without any stains.
After we left the re-sale store we went check out the other stores on our list. It was fun to look but we already had what we wanted and after seeing what we could get at the re-sale store there was no way we could justify the prices in the other stores.
We had a great day shopping and I can't wait to see the new clothes all lined up neatly in her closet!
