Rehabbing my Consignment Find

For some reason, my kids keep growing. It would seem that peanut butter (sometimes the only thing they will eat) is their Miracle Grow. So this year, when the weather turned too warm for their oversized winter coats but not yet warm enough for tee shirts, we found that none of their lightweight jackets fit. Sure, I could make them new ones (and I will, but my poor kids' projects sometimes take forever to get done), but while browsing consignment one day I found the PERFECT jacket for my five year old.

Truth be told, times haven’t changed much: the industry has.
