$100 WeeUsables Spring Wardrobe Challenge
After the record breaking winter we had here in Pennsylvania, and being buried under 3 ft. of snow, Jack and I could not be more ready for the warmer months to come. The signs of Spring are all around us, and a change of season means it's time to freshen up that closet! If you'll remember, in the fall Jack and I built a Mama and Me Capsule Wardrobe. If you're new to the blog be sure to check it out here. The rules were pretty simple. Select staple wardrobe pieces that could be worn multiple ways, and keep the price tag to a minimum. All of the items in my capsule wardrobe were purchased on sale, thrifted, found on Poshmark, or came from my Etsy shop Farview and 42nd Vintage. Jacks clothes were all purchased on sale, hand me downs from his cousins, or thrifted.
If you're local to the Lancaster area, and have kids, then you've surely heard of the massive semi annual consignment sale, WeeUsables. WeeUsables is a highly anticipated children's consignment event held in the spring and fall in Lancaster and York counties. Since 2011, WeeUsables has been giving local parents and grandparents the opportunity to not only purchase gently used children's clothing, toys, and books, but also sell their items and earn a little extra cash. Admission is *free, and grants you access to over 100,000 children's items at a fraction of the original cost. I heard about the sale through a friend when I was pregnant with Jack, and have been scoring some serious deals ever since. Buzz around the event is gearing up once again as this years sale is coming up April 7-9 in Lancaster and April 21-23 in York.
We found a lot of really cute pieces at WeeUsables for Jacks fall capsule wardrobe.
So when owner Lori Hartmann challenged us find an entire Spring wardrobe for Jack for under $100, we said bring it on!
When shopping for a new wardrobe, be it for yourself or for your child, it's always best to go in with a plan. Looking back to my first experience at WeeUsables, I was a bit overwhelmed with the amount of stuff, especially being a first time mama. So I came up with a checklist of must have items for your children's spring wardrobe, to help you stay on track while you're out shopping.
Jack and I will be taking along this list to the sale, and posting our spring looks right here at the beginning of May, so make sure to check back! You can print out a copy of the list for yourself here.
