My Kids Closet finds!

As tradition has it, I am going to post pictures of my treasures I found at Kids Closet for my own kids. I didn't do so well this time in REAL STEALS, like I did last sale with the $15 Kangaroo Climber. My total this year was $114 (so far!).

I got Beth what she needed - a few more dresses and just basic bottoms- shorts and capris. She talked me into two other outfits, I'm still not thrilled with, but oh well. Somehow, between last summer and now, I managed to buy over 20 shirts for her for this summer and 4-5 complete shorts or capri outfits, so she didn't need much this year, except plain old shorts and dresses. Here is Beth's mound of 12 items, which includes everything you see here plus an Ariel doll, you don't.

The pink tank top and striped skort outfit is Osk Kosh, the teal outfit next to it is a brand I've never heard of, but it has a mathcing "flowy" skirt that Beth had to have.

This precious dress is smocked and is DARLING!

...and the yellow/floral dress is by Plum Pudding and is just too cute on, too.
The rest are just Old Navy, Gap and random brands of jean capris and shorts. There is one T-shirt with flip-flops on it that I just love, so that is why she got it! There is also a pair of sandals that she "had to have", but I really doubt she'll ever really wear!

After surveying what I already had for Sarah for this summer (mostly 24m and 2T stuff that was all Beth's old stuff) I knew she needed more 18-24 month stuff, so that was my goal for her- plus, she needed more little play sundresses - my potty-training outfit of choice! I PLAN to start with Sarah late summer, unless she shoes any interest before then, I also found a few other couldn't resist outfits that she had to have!

Sarah's haul includes 18 items - 2 bathing suits- probably to be left at daycare to be used for her water play days, 2 skort outfits (brands??), 5 dresses by Old Navy, Caters, LeTop, etc, 3 "outfits" by Gymboree, LeTop & Carters, 3 DVDs (2 Wiggles, 1 Elmo - each $1!) and 3 pairs of shoes - 2 "water" sandles and one pair of Stride Rite tennis shoes.
I have a few I want to show you up close...
How cute is this little Patriotic shirt?! I LOVE IT! It comes red gingham capris, which she probably won't actually wear on the 4th, but I have some red shorts that will go perfectly with the top. I love it!

I couldn't resist this little ladybug jumper! Partly because the girls (well, Beth only, really) sometimes refers to my mom as "ladybug" and secondly because it is just too darn cute!

This little outfit is skorts, but I had to have it because of the little beach critters on it!

And this little skort outfit looks like it will be soooo "cool" on for hot days -its very light weight cotton and has a criss-cross open back.
I may not be finished shopping yet - each day I find something new, and generally talk myself out it. I do need to see if Sarah needs some plain basic shorts. I've done very well in staying out of the toys this time. We just do NOT need any more. I have my eye on a few "big" outside toys that I might buy at 1/2 price if they are still there on Saturday, but we'll see. The sale opens to the public tomorrow, so its going to get busy and stuff will start FLYING off the shelves soon!
