Austin TX Real Estate - Hill Country Austin Lakeway Homes for Sale: August 2008

Divine Consign in Plano TX

The BEST baby and toddler consignment sale in DFW starts tomorrow at 8am at the Plano Centre in Plano, TX. This will be my third time to attend.  I love being able to buy next-to-new for cheap cheap prices.  Babies use toys for such a short period of time, why pay retail when you don't have to?

Alyssa is now walking while pushing things, so I'll be getting her another push toy to keep at Grandma's.  She also needs a swing to hang from a tree and maybe a play fort that she can climb around in.

Get there early!  The 75% off thing is brand new.  They usually only have 50% off day.  I can't wait! Maybe I'll see you there!
