I'd like to know where there are some good consignment stores for baby furniture, but I only know of one.

 

hi - October 7

theres second blessing just off of westheimer. right next to the post office. i never had any luck there, most of the stuff was tatty. but since it is consignment, stuff could have changed. and blue bird its in the montrose area, there lots of little shops in that area so it wouldn't hurt to look around over there. would also suggest being on the look out for garage sales in the river oaks area or other ritzy areas in sugar land or spring area. too cap it off if ur looking for a crib find out the latest sfety standards--print them out its handier that way, and make sure the crib meets them. probably not worth it to buy a used car seat unless you can be sure of its history i.e. it hasn't been in any accidents. happy hunting!

Thanks so much for the advice. Yeah, I don't want a used car seat, but a crib and maybe dresser. Also a rocking chair (or glider) and maybe ba__sinet. And I have found good, cheap maternity clothes at some of those stores in Austin, so I thought I'd try my luck here. Thanks!

What part of Houston do you live in? There is a beautiful "2nd chance" baby store calle "One upon a child" off of Highway 6 and FM 529, near Katy. It is in the Wal Mart shopping center and they have really nice "new" looking stuff for very good prices. My husband and I bought a 4-1 solid wood white sleigh crib for $100 and it had been manufactured in 2004, so it was very close to brand new.

Hey Amanda, that's right in my neighborhood and I never even noticed it there! Thanks for the recommendation. We'll have to give it a try.
