This post is going to be a little bit different than most of the posts in this series because I'm not going to talk about any specific things we are considering or decisions we are making! Instead, I'm asking for your advice and feedback.
Tomorrow we will be attending a consignment sale here in town hosted by the North Dallas Mothers of Twins Club called the Twice as Nice Sale.
This is a large consignment sale where all of the items have been entered by mothers of twins or super twins. So most of the strollers are double strollers. Most of the cribs have a matching crib. Many of the clothes will have a coordinating sibling outfit. The nursery decor will have two sets of bedding.
We are going to the sale with an open mind about what we will find and even what we are looking for. I have been told by other Mom's that anything 30% of more off of retail is a good price for a consignment sale, but since I can get new items at Buy Buy Baby for 20% off that seems expensive to me. I doubt I will buy anything unless it is at least 50% off. With this in mind, I have obviously done a lot of registry research already (and even pre-written a few posts on registry items to post next week) and will write a post about our registries and where we chose to register.
At the sale we are hoping to find two big things: a double stroller and bedding to go with our nursery decor. So since I'm looking for bedding, I must have a color scheme and theme in mind for two boys right? Right! I do. Stay tuned for a nursery board for twins boys coming later! (I have lots of images but making a mood board is hard work!)
What I am looking for right now: leave a blog comment or send me a tweet (@LexyJill) with your best consignment deal.
