Lotus Bumz???

Anyone familiar with this brand? They are on zulily today for $10.99 for a pocket.

We have used mostly BG's (3.0s, 4.0s, and sized) so far, and I love them, but they are VERY well loved by baby #3, and replacing the tabs and elastic is honestly wearing me out, so I am considering selling them super cheap so someone else can do the work and just starting over with a minimal stash of pockets. DD3 is 10 months, so I wouldn't need too many, since I wash every other day. Thoughts? Also, what's the going price for very well loved dipes?

I saw them on Zulily this morning as well and passed. I got suckered into buying dipes on Eco Baby Buys and found out later (since I'm a newbie) that they were rebranded Alvas.

If there had been a print I liked, I might have bought. I'm going to hold out for brands that I know are dependable and well-loved.

I'm brand new to all of this, so I'd rather spend wisely than to get too crazy buying everything - because I'm already getting sucked into that.

Taking a CD 101 class with my FIL (who'll be our live-in manny when I go back to work) on Saturday at a favorite local shop. Planning to buy there, so I'm holding out this week!

Thanks for the feedback! I'll just hit the BG seconds sale and get some for $11. Any thoughts on prices for well loved dipes?

Of course condition is everything. Buyers are more forgiving of shot elastic/aplix if there are minimal stains... With that said
If they are minimally stained you will probably be able to sell between $5-7ppd
If they're stained pretty bad... You'll be lucky to sell at $5ppd.
Honestly, if you live in a decent sized city, you will most likely get better money craigslisting
