Weekend love: RFF and local event

I was happy to see the April SNOW melt away this weekend, and decided to go no nylons. Pretty edgy right? My baby bump is becoming a lot less subtle these days, and pants are getting tighter and tighter. I think stretchy skirts will be a staple over the next few months... Chambray: Ralph Lauren. DI @ Centerville $4 (little boy's section) Top: Gap outlet. So old. Necklace: F21 $6 Skirt: Birthday gift.

 Shoes: DI@ Tooele $4


I also attended one of my favorite thrifty events. Twice a year, Hilltop United Methodist Church in Sandy puts on a HUGE consignment sale for all things baby, kid, and maternity. You can buy and sell, and it does not disappoint! It's a great place to find used strollers, jogging strollers, highchairs, and swings in great condition, and a great way to get some gently used name brand clothing for really cheap. A percentage of the proceeds goes to benefit the church itself, and they donate most left over items to charity, so it's a great cause. The Hilltop ladies are very particular about the items they accept, so you know you'll always get items in really good condition. Some of them even still have tags on. I never miss the presale because it's the first pick of all the items. It's one of the few sales that I'm willing to wait in line in the snow for. This year I was searching for GIRL and boy. Here are some of my finds:

 Gymboree cardigan: $3 Gap pleated khaki skirt with bow detail: $3.50 Baby Keds: (like brand new) $2 Gorgeous crochet blanket in the perfect color: $3

Cherokee boat shoes: $3 New Balance sneakers: $4 Seersucker pants: $3

This sale is my absolute favorite for shoes, because they're usually under $5 and look great. E grows out of shoes so dang fast, so I hate spending a ton of money on them, but of course I want them to be stylish!

Oh and they have TOYS!! We purchased most of E's Christmas at the Fall sale for around $20. They usually have great boutique toys. We picked up mostly wood toys. This year I grabbed a huge bag of alphabet magnents for $1. So worth it.


The next sale is in the Fall on September 23rd and 24th. You can join the Hilltop UMW Children's and Maternity Sale Facebook group and request to be on the mailing list if you're interested.

Sarah, that little bump of yours is adorable! Especially in those bold stripes. I just found out about that confinement sale and checked it out last week. I REALLY want to go to the pre-sale next time. Do you have to volunteer to go to the pre-sale? My sister-in-law said the pre-sale was for volunteers (she volunteered so she could go), but are there other people that go as well?

What great deals!! My little guy outgrows his shoes so incredibly fast too. Or if he doesn't outgrow them first, he wears them out in no time. lol Consignment sales are the perfect solution!

I love those stripes for showcasing your cute baby bump!

You make horizontal stripes on your lower half look like a "must".

Amazing little things you picked up at the sale. That crochet blanket for $3?! Amazing deal. It's so much work for a handmade baby blanket
