My Town Monday- OTHER MOTHERS
Other Mothers is located in West Boise on Fairview and Five Mile Rds. It has been here (in virtually the same spot) for many years.
This store is responsible for EVERYTHING I own (past or present) for my children. Their clothing, their cribs, highchairs, carseats, strollers, toys, ANYTHING that I buy for the kiddos are from Other Mothers.
If you have not been to Other Mothers, here is how it works:
You can trade in your gently used baby furniture, outgrown kids' clothing- sizes 0 to 14, maternity clothing, toys, etc. for an in-store credit or cash. The cash is given as soon as the trade-in is done and the credit is put onto your account on the computer to use that day or any time within 2 years of the trade-in date.
Things brought in must be clean (laundered) and neat. They won't accept anything with stains, rips, missing buttons, broken, etc. for obvious reasons. Things they don't take will be given back to you or donated to the 25 cent sale. That is your choice.
Here are the 2 managers of the store, Jodi and Lynn. We love them!!
Here are a few other girls that work there.
The last Friday and Saturday of every month, Other Mothers has their 25 CENT SALE!! It's crazy! Everything that is donated gets stored in big garbage bags all month and put in storage, and on QUARTER SALE morning Val (the owner) loads his truck full and puts it all out onto tables in front of the store.
Twice a year Other Mothers has an "Off-Site 25 Cent Sale" in April and October. That means a much bigger sale, with furniture and everything! The Off-Site sale is coming up in a few weeks, and will be held in the same strip mall as Other Mothers. I personally don't know the exact date, but I'll post the details when I find out!
Halloween costumes!!! TODAY is the day!!! Drop what you are doing and get over there so you don't miss out! There are tons of costumes in all sizes. They go FAST, so I would get over there asap!
Happy shopping!! Pin It
