Twenty Dollars goes far at Once Upon a Child

For those who follow my blog, you might remember that I was chosen as fan of the month at the Stow Once Upon a Child. My prize was $20 worth of store credit. My growing three year old is in need of summer clothing so I was over the moon about this prize. I went over the weekend, determined to get at least a few outfits and not go over $20 so that my readers might see how far a twenty could go in this gently used children's resale shop.

The results: Five shirts, three pairs of shorts. They are all brand names like Gymboree, The Children's Place, Carter's, Kohl's and Target brands. Two of the shirts still had the original tags on them. That is quite a chunk of a summer wardrobe and my total was $20.77 which means I paid 77 cents out of pocket for all of this!

My little guy was overjoyed with his new clothes and demanded to try on his new Buzz Lightyear shirt immediately! Of course once he had a new shirt on, he had to try on a pair of new shorts and then model for us! (The mittens are a long story, one day he told someone he needed them because he got into a fight with a wizard and lost his hand. Most of the time he says that superheroes need them.)

I was able to get all of this simply for being a fan of the Stow Once Upon a Child Store on their facebook page. That means that one of you could be the next Fan of the Month. Simply go to their page, which is right here, and hit like! Not only will you have a chance at winning, you will also be kept up to date on all of the sales and happenings at the store. This month there is a 10% off coupon available! Good luck and be sure to let me know if one of our readers should happen to win!
