Cleaning House

We have a couple more things we're looking to get rid of this month... It's stuff that I'd rather go to a friend (or a friend of a friend) instead of a random consignment store shopper or Kijiji browser - so I thought I'd try this first.

It's all in excellent used condition (purchased new for Briony). If you're interested in any of this, message me for a price and we'll figure something out :)

1. Jolly Jumper
The old school blue hangs-from-a-doorframe kind (but it's not old, don't worry). Used A LOT by one baby girl who would have been content to bounce nonstop until she started kindergarten. Translation: excellent used condition.

2. Bumblebee Halloween Costume
Size 18 months (Briony was 11.5 months old when she wore it). Comes with the little hooded bumblebee suit (zips up in the back) + the ridiculously cute tights with printed-on mary janes. Again, excellent used condition. Obviously. She wore it for about three hours :)

3. Winnie the Pooh Snowsuit
Size 0-6 months. Two pieces - a full fleece hooded suit with fold-over mittens + a bunting bag with shoulder buttons. Light pink with embriodery. Tasteful embroidery. If you doubt that, then we've never met. Bunting bag has holes for car seat straps. Together with the Bundle Me (below) we didn't need a snowsuit at all for Briony's first winter.

4. JJ Cole Bundle Me
Infant size (fits perfectly in an infant car seat). Dark grey microfleece exterior with ivory fleece lining. I won't hesitate to say that this is possibly the best baby item we had in terms of convenience and practicality and an absolute no-brainer if you live in Manitoba and reproduce.

5. JJ Cole Bundle Me Lite
Infant size (fits perfectly in an infant car seat). Dark grey rain resistant exterior with ivory cotton lining. We loved this for spring/summer/fall weather in the mornings, evenings, and on rainy or windy days.

6. Nursing Pillow + Cover
Jolly Jumper nursing pillow with dark brown zippered slipcover. Gorgeous dark brown printed nursing cover from Small Potatoes. My blog readers will know that I breastfed for about nine seconds, so the pillow was used a few times to prop up Briony when she was having tummy time or learning to sit, and the nursing cover was used exactly once. Sigh. I WAS SO PREPARED.

7. Magnet Locks
We purchased a bunch of KidCo magnetic cupboard locks + keys for our kitchen and bathroom and - DARN IT - they don't work on our cupboards. Could you hear my swearing from wherever you live? Anyway. They're fabulous and came highly recommended, but we can't use them. And we can't return them. But if you need them, this is your lucky day :)

More to come, I'm sure! This house is NOT big enough for all this extra stuff...

I'm interested in the cabinet locks- can you facebook message me about them please? We are installing new kitchen cabinets, and I would love some locks that don't need to be screwed in. Thanks!

Keep me in mind for any old wood furniture that you need to unload!!

PS: Thanks for your AWESOME comments and encouragement on the biz, I went to the WEC because of your recommendation!
