Tell Your Friends!!!

This Saturday is our third Mom 2 Mom Sale in Ludington!  I want to clear up a couple of things for those of you who might be wondering...

What is a Mom 2 Mom Sale?  

I am going to quote www.mom2momsalesmichigan.com, as this site defines it well:

A mom to mom sale is a large indoor sale where moms can rent tables to sell their children's outgrown gently used items to other moms and dads.  They are a great place for new expectant moms to find maternity wear, baby carriers, baby gear, cribs, bassinets, bouncers, and much of their needs for baby. . . and for seasoned moms to keep up with their growing children's clothing, toys, and furniture needs.  Often children outgrow their clothes, shoes, toys and equipment before it can be worn out and replacing those items can become costly.  Mom 2 Mom sales are a great way to save money and get the items you want for your baby and children through age 12 or so (some sales are specific only to size 8 clothing) at a fraction of the cost!  Often times you may even be able to find an item that is new with tags.  

Some Mom to Mom Sales are organized to benefit a church, school, child care center, municipality, or other non-profit organization.  Other Mom 2 Mom Sales are organized by for-profit businesses to give moms the opportunity to sell at a large sales event.  Each venue can have a different set of rules.  Some sales allow moms who sell new products, crafts or services to rent a table.  These moms are usually classified as vendors.  Other sales only allow moms to sell resale items.  Many Mom to Mom Sales have a limit of new item vendors to keep their mom 2 mom sale as a place where moms come to sell what their families no longer need and purchase what their families need now.  

Many Mom to Mom Sales have large item rooms or big ticket rooms.  These rooms are filled with large items for babies through teen such as strollers, travel systems, cribs, bassinets, bouncers, exersaucers, swings, ride on toys, as well as items that are too big to fit easily at seller's tables such as desks, play yards, play structures, play kitchens, play workbenches, furniture, and other large toys and gear.   

Is the Ludington Mom 2 Mom Sale just for families with babies?  

No!  :)  Our sale will offer items for kids size infant to 12 years.  While we cannot promise that you will find items in every size for every sex, we can confidently say that we have a large amount of the "kid population" covered.  Whether or not you find the size you need or the specific item you are looking for (although chances are you will!), you can walk away knowing that you supported a really great organization that helps kids -- Campus Life.  We hope you can say that you had a good time, too!

SEE YOU SATURDAY!  Don't forget to tell your friends!

The Finish Line is Near...

After months of planning with a team of nearly twenty organized, zealous moms, HMF is nearing the finish line.

Last week, we decided to hang a "sold out" (of tables) sign on Facebook.  All 57 tables were spoken for before the contract due date!  (This year's sale will hold 17 more tables than last year.  Wow!)

Now we are gearing up to paper the town pink with fliers advertising our sale.   We are also working to collect donations for Campus Life's tables at the sale.

Patti Klevorn wrote a lovely article in today's edition of The Ludington Daily News that supported our current efforts.  She did a great job of describing how Campus Life, this year's beneficiary, will use the sale's proceeds.

In case you are visiting this site to find out more about donating, here is some information directly from Klevorn's article titled "Campus Life to benefit from Mom 2 Mom sale":

The community can help by providing donations of gently used baby and kids’ items (clothing, furniture, toys, books, videos, accessories, etc.) to be sold at a special booth at this year’s Mom 2 Mom Sale.

The center’s teens will help go through the donations and work at the sale.

Look for an HMF container in Ludington at the office of Andrew Reisterer, DDS, 902 E. Ludington Ave., or drop off items at the Center for Youth, 605 N. Rath Ave., during weekday afternoons.

You may also drop off items in the fellowship hall of Cornerstone Baptist Church, 121 Nelson Rd., Ludington, the week before the sale beginning Monday, May 2nd.

The finish line is near, and we hope you'll help us cross it by donating your gently used items and/or shopping at the sale on Saturday, May 7th, from 8 AM--1 PM!
