You may, or more than likely may not, recall last year when I made this trade of bean bags for a deep fryer. This year I have already made another similar type trade.
Recently a friend of a friend created a Facebook group for moms in our area to sell unwanted toys/clothes/baby items/etc. It has been a great tool already. Free, directed right to our local area moms and much better than Craigslist in my opinion. We have already sold a few things that would have been too much effort to really try on Craigslist or take to a consignment store.
This week, someone listed a small 12″ princess bike in great used condition. They only wanted $5 for it! I decided to get it for Little Monkette (It is a little big for her right now, but she will grow into it!). After some discussion about how I would pick it up, the seller offered to give it to Little Monkette for free! While this was a great offer, I certainly didn’t mind paying the $5, so I offered up a trade. I would make the seller’s daughter, ‘B’ an initial tshirt in exchange for the bike. (This actually ending up costing me less than the original $5 and who knows, it could lead to more orders for Two Florida Girls!) I can’t wait to hear how ‘B’ and her mom like the new shirt (I dropped it off while they weren’t home.)
I got a message from B’s Mom to let me know how much they liked the shirt! B opened it up and loved it so much that she decided she would wear it the very next day to school! I’m so glad she liked it! Can’t wait for Little Monkette to be big enough for the bike!
