Parents can save big at Saturday’s Spring Baby Fair in Brewer
Saturday’s Spring Baby Fair in Brewer is like an awesome garage sale, except it’s indoors and it’s all about baby.
Do you know how much STUFF babies need?
It’s amazing how many things babies need. I mean, you dress them in a cute little onesie and then you feed them. Every parent can tell you what happens next when some of that food comes back and all over the baby’s outfit. Time to change. And speaking of which… well… that’s another ruined outfit. And these are just clothes. I haven’t even mentioned furniture, car seats, high chairs, walkers, bouncy chairs, etc.
What’s frustrating is how expensive everything is and how babies grow in a minute. I mean, those 20 onesies probably won’t last more than two or three months (tops) and then you consider buying bigger ones. Who has that kind of money? Especially with the costs of diapers, formula and baby wipes. Wow. Children are very expensive.
How does the Spring Baby Fair work?
So the folks at Brewer Parks and Recreation found a way to help. Several times a year they hold baby fairs. No, they don’t sell babies. They provide a space for parents and others to sell gently used baby items at a greatly reduced cost. It’s a win-win because, honestly, what do you do with all those baby items once your kids outgrow them? Parents of younger children get what they need while saving money, and parents of older children can get some of their money back by selling things they don’t need. Oh, and they don’t just sell baby items, they also sell items for older kids.
When and where does the spring baby fair take place? Can I use a credit card?
The Spring Baby Show will be held Saturday at the Brewer Auditorium from 8 a.m. to noon. Get there early as I hear there is usually a line by the time they open the doors. Oh, and the organizers say it’s important to bring cash for shopping.
