Thrifting a dressy outfit for kids

As schedules start to fill up with spring holidays and summer events, it’s always a great idea to have a few dressy outfits on hand in advance so your family isn’t scrambling to find something for your little ones at the last minute. One of my absolute favorite things to shop for at Goodwill is dressy outfits for children! They are usually in excellent condition because the items have only been worn once or twice for a special occasion before the child grows out of them. From tutus to suits, there’s something for every occasion for every age.

Take this time to peek at your upcoming schedule and make a thrift wish list for formal events such as Easter, summer weddings, graduations, summer birthdays, and more. Here are some of my favorite finds from Goodwill Akron and check out some of our reader’s submissions! Be sure to use the hashtag #12MonthsofThrifting so we can see your finds.
