New Treasures


The expression ‘one man’s junk is another man’s treasure’ must have come from a mom—and we’re pretty sure she was talking about children’s items. Kids don’t care if things are new or old because everything is new to them…and savvy moms know how to take advantage of this little secret. Luckily for us (our kids and the environment) Vancouver has many options for recycling our children’s old stuff and feeling good about doing it too.
Send your “like-new” baby and children’s clothing, books, strollers, and bedding to Crabtree Corner YWCA, which supports women and children on Vancouver’s Eastside. For that much loved stroller, Sweet Peanut is offering a $50 gift certificate to their online store for every stroller donated to Crabtree Corner for the remainder of 2009. Sweet Peanut will even pick up the stroller at your home. You just need to email them at [email protected] to arrange a time (and tell them SavvyMom sent you). If you go to Crabtree Corner yourself to make your donation, please call ahead to arrange a time. The YWCA also has a Thrift Shop on Main Street that supports Crabtree Corner and all other Lower Mainland YWCA’s.
