I love thrift stores! I am a life-long second-hand shopper. It doesn’t matter what my financial situation is – I always hit the second-hand stores first. I often find amazing one-of-a-kind deals. You just need patience and an open mind.
Since winter has arrived with a BANG, my darling son Little Tiger needed his first pair of snow pants. (He is 9-months old, and even though he was born in February he never experienced winter because it was so spring-like). I priced out snow pants at Wal-Mart and Zellers. Most were $10 to $20 which doesn’t seem like much but as a new mom I try to save cash when I can.
Lucky me, I visited my neighbourhood Sally Ann (www.salvationarmy.ca) and found these perfect navy blue snow pants for $4.99! They are like new, no rips, not worn out and the perfect size (12m…my DS is big for his age – more of him to love).
I was so pleased to find these pants because they match perfectly with Little Tiger’s winter coat, which is bright yellow with navy blue as an accent colour. I like to mix and match new items with old items, so the new coat with the second-hand pants work perfectly!
