I have bins of diaper things I was thinking about putting in the spring sale - just couldn't organize it for fall. Glad you got some good deals! We will have to do something in spring to signal we are DS mamas to each other!

I was shocked at the lack of diaper selection. I swear at past sales there have been WAY more diapers for sale (unless all of the volunteers snapped them up!). I always look through them for random dipes I haven't tried.

I got all of my kiddos winter pjs, some new books, preschool clothes for DD, and a brand new pair of Stride Rites for DS. I was pretty excited with my finds! I also got one bin of clothes back, so I'll reprice and send them again in spring!

I have to agree about the diapers. I remember last year there were PILES of diapers even on the half-price day. I found swaddlebees and Imagines, even a GUC GM. One woman bought every prefold that was left at 50% off last year, maybe 40 or more? There were only two prefolds left this year, and they were WAY overpriced. The rest of the leftovers were really old or used covers and stuff with shot elastic

Definitely! I didn't consign this sale even though I have alot of fall/winter stuff because it was too much to deal with having a 3mo and a 3yo. I might drop some things off at Happy Bambino's open call this week. 50% isn't bad and there's no sorting or tagging!

Yeah pretty sure 3 months postpartum gives you a pass for sure! I set 2/28 in my phone to send out an email on here about getting ready for the spring sale April 11 so that's about 6 weeks before the sale. Sound good?

The HB is a good idea love thAt place but not sure I need much from there anymore my youngest turns 3 next month and is PT.

Sounds great!

I think you can use their store credit toward classes and groups - we do the Tuesday AM 3yo group. They also have Melissa & Doug and clothes for older kids.

Re: New here from Wisconsin

For those who went to the Madison Half-Pint sale I used my Nicki's diapers coupon yesterday that I got at check out (stapled stack of ads/coupons) it's good for a snack bag or a pair of Hoot Nicki's brand baby legs. Anyone get their check yet? I can't remember how long it takes I'm so curious to see how much I'm going to get but bracing to be disappointed in the total amount.

Nice! I was wondering what the free gift was!

No check yet, but anxiously awaiting. I have no clue what to expect since it was my first year consigning. Of course I forgot my SASE, so my check will prob be in the last batch.
