I wanted to share with families in the area about a thrift store in Bellingham, MA called the Blessing Barn. They have the best prices on everything from clothing (infants to adults) to household items to furniture to books. Adult clothing is $1.50 a piece (unless marked) and childrens clothing (size 16 & under is $.75). Despite great prices, they also have something on sale everyday (see list below). They do NOT sell toys because they can't test everything that is donated for lead content and do not want to sell something that could harm a child.
I love this place! I get all my children's clothing here as well as my own. I am 8 1/2 months pregnant and I've been able to find great, name brand maternity clothing as well. It's worth checking out!
