Could this winter possibly last any longer? There's only so many more times I can bust out the Play-Doh and watercolors before my girls look at me like I'm crazy.
WE NEED THE OPTION TO GO OUTSIDE.
And all the mamas said, Amen?
One ray of hope in the midst of this icy mess, though, is the onset of spring/summer shopping. There's something about adorable toddler swimsuits and sundresses that just makes a home a happier place, no?
I'm blessed enough to have a mother who believes that to be so, and each season she generously stocks my girls up with new clothes. I, however, don't have the time or the money to do much shopping of my own... In fact, there are basically two times per year I go shopping for my girls, and that's when Rhea Lana's comes to town...
Rhea Lana's is the nation's premier children's consignment event, and it started right here in Arkansas. I love attending the sales for many different reasons:
- Huge Selection. You could literally purchase your child's whole wardrobe in this one place if you wanted to.
- Bargain Pricing. I love finding boutique brands for extremely discounted prices!
- Local. (Ok, "local" for us small-town girls means we can get there in a half-hour. And the Searcy, AR sale falls in that category. Being able to shop without driving an hour to Little Rock is a plus for me.)
- Great Quality. The Rhea Lana staff is very particular about the items they allow in their sale, so you won't be browsing through worn-out stuff. Everything is in great shape -- no stains!
- Christian Values. The company was started by Rhea Lana Riner, a wife and mom who unashamedly says that God is her first priority, not her job. She sees this company as a ministry to young families aiming to resourcefully (& stylishly!) dress their children.
- Half-Price Sales. My favorite time to shop Rhea Lana's is during their half-price days. Talk about extremely good deals!
I mean, if we can't actually live like it's spring, we can at least shop like it, right?
