From the neighborhood garage sale two weeks ago, I can say that we did good. Especially that we got something that we need for baby’s bedroom. Actually, the neighbors have had these items available for sale last year. My daughter was a newborn and was still sleeping in the crib so we did not get the items that time.
Fortunately, on this year’s garage sale, the neighbor’s kids bedroom furniture set was still available. My husband and I were happy to know that the neighbor was giving it away for a very cheap price. What our baby has right now in her bedroom is a toddler bed and two dressers. The dressers are borrowed from my sister-in-law. We need to give them back because her daughter just got married and, pretty soon, might pregnant. If not, we still have to give them back to her because we are ready for a new bedroom furniture for our daughter.
Bought these set of kids bedroom furniture set from a garage sale
We are very proud of this furniture set for baby’s bedroom. I think it’s cute and the design is girly yet. The color matches our daughter’s bedroom color. The details on the furniture is really pretty. The pieces need touch-ups and my husband will work on it very soon.
We had a garage sale in our neighborhood yesterday. The items I mostly displayed were baby clothes and baby gear. The changing table furniture was also out for sale, and sold quickly. What’s nice about having a garage sale is when you sell the items you want to get rid off. The weather was great yesterday morning too.
Baby bath, bouncer, stroller
Though we really didn’t have much on display in the garage, our neighbors across the street had a LOT of items, and mostly were baby stuff too. They have two kids, a young girl and a toddler boy. So they pulled out all the cribs, bassinet, baby clothes, and toddler toys that they don’t need. Since they are located in the corner, theirs were the first to be seen from the road and driving traffic to the neighborhood.
Yard sale at the neighbor's
There was a buyer who asked me if there’s still infant clothing that I want to sell. He asked that question because he saw my little princess walking around and playing with the stroller and the display items. I grabbed the box of baby clothes from 3 months to 12 months and picked a few pairs of outfits for his granddaughter who was with him. He liked the baby outfits so he payed a good amount for those. I am still saving some baby clothing for my future niece and friends’ newborn girls. It is nice to give the slightly used baby clothes to those who need them.
My cousin and her daughter came over for the garage sale. We walked to see what we can see at the other yards while my husband man the garage. Her daughter found a big red Christmas teddy bear. My little girl found this yellow duck. The owner gave the girls the toys for free. Yay!
Baby got this yellow ducky for free
The items left unsold are still available for sale in a reasonable price-the infant bath tub, bouncer, and universal stroller. If you are interested, please let me know.
My husband said that there are furniture stores along Midway Road. He bought our furniture there few years ago. We might be able to find a bedroom set for our toddler. So in continuation to our shopping for baby bedroom furniture, we went to Dallas. And on Midway Road, we entered the streets where furniture warehouses are located.
My husband was a little shocked because he did not expect to see only few furniture warehouse in operation. Most of the buildings are closed (for sale/for lease). “Because of the tight competition nobody is gaining profit anymore,” a guy said. Unfortunately, after entering four furniture stores, we did not find what we were looking for.
From Dallas we head straight to McKinney. There we looked at ToysRUs and what do you know? We were able to find a toddler bed. All this time we were passing by the area where the kids’ bed are displayed, although not all are. Then we looked at different styles and color shown in the rack where printed samples are on display. We picked the bed with Cherry finish. And it was 30% Off the total price with a free wooden seat stool. What a deal!
Baby has been sleeping in her toddler bed for three nights now. She graduated from the crib already.
