Stock Up For Spring at HVPOM Mom2Mom Sale
Disclosure: The HVPOM Mom2Mom Sale has sponsored this post. All opinions belong to Ann Arbor with Kids
Winter may have finally decided to show up the last few weeks, but it’s been interspersed with enough warm days to remind us that spring is right around the corner. For young children that typically means that they need a new wardrobe. I’m lucky that at 10 my daughter’s growth has slowed down and she can wear clothes for multiple seasons.
However if you’re looking for a bargain, the Huron Valley Parents of Multiples (HVPOM) is hosting their semi-annual Mom 2 Mom sale on Saturday, March 12. HVPOM Members will be selling tons of great items including maternity gear, toys, baby gear, and clothes for kids from birth through size 12.
Great Deals at HVPOM Mom2Mom Sale
Parents of Multiples tend to collect fabulous doubles and triples of items. After their kids outgrow these items, they don’t have the space to keep all of these duplicate items once their kids are done with them. With this excess of goods, HVPOM members tend to sell things at very reasonable prices. Some deal samples that have been found at recent sales are a bouncy seat for $4, a like-new papisan-style infant swing for $20, new with tags U-M running suit in size 2T for $3, an oversized pair of Mickey and Minnie Mouse stuffed animals for $4.
Since many items are available in duplicate, the HVPOM Mom2Mom Sale is a great place to shop if you want to be able to have the same piece of baby gear or toy at a grandparent’s or baby-sitter’s house that you have at home.
HVPOM Mom2Mom Sale Format
The HVPOM Mom 2 Mom sale is easy to shop with it’s department store style format. A department store style sale is easy to shop since it is just like shopping at a department store with items on tables and arranged by category including clothing sorted by size and gender. HVPOM Members tag their items in advance of the sale with a description and a price, and they are strategically placed out by type. It’s easy to find what you’re looking for in clothing because everything is arranged on tables by size and gender.
Additionally, all items are marked at a set price and set on tables. There isn’t any bartering, which means you can check items out and walk away without guilt if the price isn’t right for your budget. You also don’t have to worry about whether you would be able to negotiate a better deal.
HVPOM Mom2Mom Bake Sale for Babies
Does shopping make you (or your child) hungry? Be sure to stop by the HVPOM Mom2Mom Bake Sale for Babies to benefit March of Dimes. Last year over $700 was raised to benefit the NICUs at C.S.Mott Children’s Hospital and St. Joseph Mercy Hospital. Since more than half of twins and almost 90% of triplets are born premature, the cause is personal for a lot of members of HVPOM.
If you’re just looking for a shot of caffeine, Biggby Coffee will be providing drinks for purchase at the Bake Sale.

In addition to the Mom2Mom Sale and Bake Sale, several local vendors will be selling their products at the sale. Participating vendors include:
