Diapers at thrift stores?

I have read about alot of mama's that have found cloth dipes at thrift stores. Where in the store did you find them? By baby stuff?

I've searched everywhere, and haven't been lucky

Re: Diapers at thrift stores?

I found a bunch of newborn stuff when I was pregnant last time..It was with the baby clothes. It is a Mennonite thrift store though so that could have something to do with it

I got a huge bag of really thick prefolds at goodwill when I was pregnant for 9.00 , which at the time I thought was high, but I got home and there were 16 of them in the bag.

One thrift store won't sell them and another one will, but it's hit or miss if you'll find any there-just luck of the draw really!

I am thinking of opening a second hand shop and I am going try to have cloth diapers available from local WAHM's

I have never been able to find them at a thrift store either.

I found a couple swim diaper covers once for 25 cents but haven't had any other luck! I've done pretty well on craigslist though.

Re: Diapers at thrift stores?

I found a bunch of swim diapers & prorap covers at the Salvation Army in a "free" bin by the door...the people that were sorting stuff were grossed out by the idea of cloth diapers and figured nobody would buy them...they put them out that morning and said if they hadn't been taken by the end of the day, they were going to throw them away That was definitely a thrifty kind of day I've found a few gerber prefolds and flats in the infant section with the receiving blankets and a couple ecology kids covers in a big bin that usually has frilly diaper covers (not waterproof, just dressy ones), tights, and kids underwear ...BTW that always makes me wonder, do people actually buy used underwear for their kids? The idea of that just grosses me out...I know its essentially the same idea as used CDs but I just can't get past the idea of it being used underwear.
