Second hand shopping.

Thats my adiction, and i love it.
Sadly I have been critisized and put down for it. (not that i care what they think) I proudly shop a consignment store for my childrens clothes. I was asked just yesterday how i can dress my children in beautiful name brand clothing, but I cant afford to pay my phone bill. I proudly responded, "I shop at Denim and Frills". When asked what store this was i started to grin from ear to ear. I excitedly told them all aabout it, only to find this person almost scowling at me. (please note: i do not take lightly to people putting down another for shopping "second hand".) She remarked that she would never put her son in "used" clothing. I was offended. BIG TIME. For me and my husbands, brothers girlfriend, this is a big deal! we compare evrything we got and how the prices are. Its a regular conversation in our family. 
I looked at her and said, "I think people are crazy for spending full price on a pair of jeans that will either A) have a hole in the knee the first time worn, or B) The child will grow out of them within a month." Its crazyness! For the $30 she just spent on her 1 yr olds jeans, i just bought both of my kids 6 full outfits each! brand name! in amazing condition! So who looks crazy now?
One of our amazing finds!
