Abundantly baby and child sale

I went

It was good. However crowds are still a huge issue. You pretty well have to fight your way to even get close enough to a table to look at things. Crowds seem to noticeably thin out by 2. Not sure if having the sale on for longer than 2 hours would help that? I guess you have to go at the beginning or all the stuff would be very picked over.  
I would have rather seen all the tables go to people selling second hand baby/child stuff rather than a few of the "vendors" who were there. I think it's too short of time frame for that and personally my preference was for getting bargains. LOL  
All in all it's a great sale - hats off to the lady who organizes it! She does a wonderful job!

Yup, crowds were incredibly crazy, and I agree with maybe a longer time.  
However I slightly disagree with the individual above, the two vendors I specifically came to see (Drooliez by Dooley and Little Acre Designs) are located far out of Brandon, so it's quite ideal when they can come!!  
That being said, I'd love to see it at a larger venue, we got some excellent deals! Another kudos to the organizer!

The last sale that was hosted was longer and the crowds petered off and there wasn't any traffic going through. The buyers all come right at the start it seems.
