When it comes to certain things (baking, cleaning), you’re all for taking the easy way out.
So rather than scour endless racks of clothing options for your rugrats, grab one of Buggy’s new Goodie bags instead.
Heather Hollenbeck and Sarah Dublin, proprietors of the Madrona children’s consignment shop, fill each canvas tote with six to eight high-end, almost-new pieces of clothing in a variety of sizes and colors for boys and girls.
Your bag may include tees, sweaters, jammies, dresses, or denim (the surprise is half the fun!). But rest assured each assortment contains items that easily mix and match to create ready-made outfits.
Talk about shopping made simple.
