thrift store prefold find....what brand are they???

i went to a local thrift store the other day and found a dozen brand new (prepped only) of the absolute softest prefolds! they are priced at $2.50 each...so a bit pricey for not knowing the brand....but they are unbleached, and they appear to be indian cotton due to their softness and texture, they are premium size and have white serging at ends, but there is a royal blue stitch before the serge on both ends....what brand might these be?

seriously i have never found any prefold that is a traditional cotton type to be this soft!!!! like cotton ball/sponge/obv soft and squishy!

i have went and drooled over these 2x but cant quite bring myself to pay $25+ for them, especially if i dont know the brand/and wash routine that was used (if at all) with them....

thoughts?

I don't know what they are - but honestly, I would skip it at that price tag. Cotton babies prefolds are AMAZINGLY soft (way softer than gmd organic, imagine organics, diaper rites) and they're only $2 each with free shipping.

I agree with pp that you should try to talk them down on price. That is kind of ridiculous for a thrift store to ask that much.

That price makes me wonder if they are cotton. I mean you say they are cotton and I believe you but the price of that at a THRIFT store is kind of crazy.

And I have no idea what they could be, Im sorry.

I agree. and hate to say it but it sounds like the ones that the area hospitals use... not sure if they use them for burp pads or what, but they bring them out for our mama bfing meeting...

Re: thrift store prefold find....what brand are they???

oh, let me clarify! sorry...they take consignment too!!!! so they go buy what seller wants/and the percentage the store needs to sell them.....so i am guessing the owner wants at least $20 based on that price?

i agree, i should ask about a lot price....

they are a standard premium size....

that store has nothing else CD related, these were stacked and tagged with the baby bottles....

so at the least i thought i could ask if they could get more info from the consignor? and ask whats the least they could take for all?


thanks for the tips!

((yeah, i totally mislead you re/thrift store...sorry...half is community thrift/donations the other half of the store is consignment))
