One thing that I have always loved is shopping at garage sales and thrift stores! :) Yep, I'm what you call "cheap"...or in a more acceptable term, I could also be called "frugal!" I absolutely LOVE to find good deals and I have found quite a few of them while browsing through second hand stores. Our kids have caught on to how fun it is to shop second hand as well...and the mere mention of thrift stores, garage sales and second hand stores instantly causes cheers and begging to come along to "shop" with Mom. ;)
Second Peek Maternity Boutique has put two of my favorite things together - shopping online and second hand shopping - and has become a wonderful place to buy affordable, and high quality items. They offer a HUGE selection of pre-loved maternity wear (at up to 75% off regular retail prices) as well as a great selection of unique gifts and mom-invented gear. Their slogan "Something Old, Something New" definitely describes this online boutique!
It was about a year ago that we were first introduced to Second Peek Maternity Boutique, and we tried out their Knot Genie Detangling Brush. This brush is still used every single day in our home. With three girls, there is a lot of hair to brush and the Knot Genie has been VERY helpful in being able to provide our girls with (mostly :) ) pain-free brushing. Our 5 year old daughter won't let us brush her hair unless we are using the Knot Genie, so it definitely makes a difference!
Second Peek Maternity Boutique has many other new items on their website, and the store is always changing as more new items are added and as different pre-loved products are posted. They have all sorts of essentials for mom including baby carriers, non-toxic nail polish, reusable snack bags and more. One of their newest additions is the Sili Squeeze which is a reusable food pouch that is perfect for babies, toddlers or even older kids. It's ideal for families who are traveling or on-the-go. The pouches come in two different sizes, and several fun colors. I've enjoyed using them for my 3, 5 and 6 year olds. Our one year old hasn't quite mastered the sili squeeze technique yet, but it's great for storing pureed foods in for babies. Each Sili Squeeze has a silicone nipple that must be squeezed in order for the yummy food to be able to come out. That means the food will not spill or leak out if the snack container is dropped, held upside down, etc. There is a lid to cover the nipple when the Sili Squeeze is not in use, and the containers are made from soft, flexible silicone and make eating pureed snacks a breeze. We love to use it for things such as applesauce, yogurt or smoothies. They are also dishwasher-safe which is always a nice feature for busy parents. We give the Sili Squeeze a double thumbs up...once again Second Peek Maternity Boutique has proven that they have a knack for finding and selling high quality, unique and practical items. Head over and pick up a Sili Squeeze or two and you'll find that snacks on the go will be a lot simpler - and a lot healthier too!
There are some BIG changes happening at Second Peek Maternity Boutique in the upcoming weeks and months. They will be laughing a sister site soon, which will be known as 'The Mommy Collection.' All of the fabulous mom-invented products will be moved to this website, and Second Peek will continue to focus on pre-loved items. It'll be one company, but with two great websites to visit and shop at! As for the giveaway, let's make it a $30 Gift Certificate open to both USA & Canada.
