Baby #2 on the way: Getting ready

It’s amazing how different things are the second time around.  When I was planning for our first daughter everything had to be perfect and new, sparkly and clean.  This time around I’ve realized how fast they grow out of clothes and how things get destroyed very quickly.  I have had a lot of fun going to different children’s consignment stores and have found tons of awesome, barely used items.  I don’t need a lot of stuff the second time around since we kept most everything from our first little one, but I do love saving a little bit of money on the items I do need.  Here are some stores I shopped at!

Childish Things is located in the Greenwood neighborhood! They offer a great selection of gently used things for babies and children (preemie to size eight), maternity, new products, gifts, toys, and books.

Nestled in Seattle’s Wallingford neighborhood, Kids on 45th offers new and used clothing, shoes, toys and more for growing children. 

Me ‘n Moms is located in Ballard. They offer children’s clothing, toys, maternity wear, strollers and more!

Located in Madison Valley, Sugarlump offers high-quality children’s and maternity clothes, including seasonal outfits and Halloween costumes too!

Be sure to add any consignment stores you’ve shopped at and loved. I’m always looking for new places to check out. Happy Shopping!
