A friend told me about a very unique "consignment" sale in Chatham, New York.
It's called O! Baby Children's Consignment Sale and you can read all about it here:
Two women organize it twice a year. Hundreds of consignors bring in clean, quality merchandise --- some really beautiful stuff--- and sell it in a big building on the Columbia County Fairgrounds.
If anyone knew about the impending arrival of a baby girl, this would have been a great place to get a lifetime of lovely outfits.
There were hundreds of little boys clothes to choose from, too.
And puzzles, story books, games, rattles, dvds, and on and on into kid "material goods paradise."
Of course, I couldn't leave the sale without buying one, just one, outfit for one of my baby dollies.
It's pink and has a white pinafore over it. So adorable it was impossible to pass up.
Oh, it's a heart-stopper all right.
Since the dress, like all of them at the sale, was clean and ironed, I couldn't wait to put it right on the dolly as soon as I got home.
It has oodles of lace and pink ribbons hanging from tiny pink rosebuds. So charming!
So here this newly attired sweetheart sits on a kids' rocking chair in the front hallway, ready to welcome anyone who comes in.
