A few months ago there was a major “kid stuff sale” in town. It was one of those sales that if you want to sell stuff, you buy a table or two for all your stuff. There were not near enough tables for the number of people who wanted to sell stuff, so it ended up that there were a lot of people who just listed things they wanted to sell, on the Facebook page. On woman had 2 bags of girl’s clothes for sale at $30 a bag, sizes 2-7. I asked if she’d knock the price down for both bags & she agreed to sell them for $45.
Once I got everything washed & sorted, I was astounded at just how much clothing was there. Each stack is a different size starting with size 2 on the left, up to size 7 on the far right. Up until that point, Chancery had been wearing mostly cast-offs from Asher, & I cannot tell you how many times she was mistaken for a boy. It was an honest mistake, when she’s wearing boy’s jeans, a blue t-shirt & a hunter green winter coat, having a headband in her hair just doesn’t seem like enough to offset all the boy coloured clothes.
I’ve got all the clothes organized & put in bins, & I think she’s pretty set for the next few years. Sure, she’ll still end up with a few of Asher’s hand-me-downs, like coats & sweaters, but with all the pink & purple she’ll be wearing underneath, hopefully being mistaken for a boy will be a thing of the past.
