As a mom, I have to admit that whenever our family travels more than about 15 miles, we load up our van and all of our gear and it seems to be popping out the windows...and that's just 15 miles! No matter how much planning, organization and time we have to prepare for a vacation...there always seems to be the "uh-oh" moment when we arrive.The "oh no, we forgot our socks." The "what are we going to do now that we don't have a bathing suit for little Johnny?" The "I am just SURE I packed my little black dress." Yep. We have all been there! We can only remember so many things! After all the planning and packing when we take a vacation - who has time to triple check a suitcase? And really, who wants to go spend MORE money on a weekend outfit that we may never need again? That's where Fort Wayne's great consignment stores come into the picture!
