We have all heard of "hand me downs" but would you buy used items for your children? We shop for ourselves at thrift stores and such, but would you buy for your kids items from there? My friend and I were in a thrift store the other day and I spotted the cutest little girls dress without a speck of anything on it. It looked brand new. I showed it to my friend and she look aghast that I even noticed it. She stated she never buys used for her children. I was confused because if it is good enough for you to wear used jeans and such, why is it not OK for your children.
