Frugal Living: Ottawa Consignment Stores

Today is the first day that I am trying to sell some of my clothing via consignment. I’ve always been curious about doing this, but never got around to trying it. Most consignment stores in Ottawa give you 40% of the selling price. The other 60% go to the retailer, which is fair, since they have to staff, pay rent, make a living.. you know what I mean.

In case anyone was thinking about trying this too, here is a list of Ottawa Consignments stores.

Cool stuff: Duplo

Do you remember Duplo? I do. It’s really great for kids. Gets their creative juices flowing if you know what I mean.

When I was out thrift store hunting yesterday and we saw a big ol’ bag of it. I wish I would have bought it. Once I got home, I took a look on Pinterest to see what cool stuff I could have made with it. Here’s my Pinterest board on Be Creative – Duplo.

 Did you ever play with Duplo? Do you remember anything you made with it? Do you have a cool pin that I should have a look at? 

Once my daughter starts playing with it, I’ll post some of her creations here.
