Deals on gear, clothes and toys this week
While we have some fabulous consignment shops in Brooklyn, sometimes it’s fun to go to an event where you swap and buy used items from parents you see and meet. One of the most famous tag sales for parents is the Manhattan Twins Club sale. Why is it famous? For its stock on double strollers, cribs, duplicate clothing and everything a parent of a twin might need. Don’t think that only parents of twins can go- parents of singletons can find everything they need too. This Tag Sale has double everything- you can pick and choose just what you need for your single babe too!
If you can’t make the trip to Manhattan, then you might check out Monk’s Trunk Children’s Consignment Store. For one week starting tomorrow (Sunday, May 22), a great bulk of new toys at their store will be 40% off. This includes toys from Melissa & Doug, Ambi, Mudpuppy, Westminster, Alex, and Battat. We’re talking bath toys, robo-dogs, dolls (magnetic and paper), bionic hamsters, flying pigs, wooden puzzles, toy horns, shrinky dinks and more! If you’ve got birthday parties coming up, now is your chance to load up.
