Actually, it was an Estate sale. We had passed the sign last night on the way to the store, and decided after our wonderful find last week that we would check it out. Sure enough, as we are getting out of the Jeep, a lady screams 'Everything half off!'. She came right up to Keith and I as if she knew us and said 'We have a beautiful baby bed over there that we will sell you for half off if you like.' HOW DID SHE KNOW!? (I know I am showing a little bit, but I had a fleece on, and you could barely see my belly) Well, this beautiful Baby's Dream crib and Simmons Kid baby mattress were MORE than perfect to us. So we bought them! $100 cash! It was an amazing buy... The crib is convertible and will even convert into a headboard for a child's twin size mattress when the time is right. Looks like we will be using this piece of furniture for quite a while!

Here are some pictures. WE LOVE IT!!!

It seemed fairly simple to put together. Keith worked on that while I made us breakfast.

We liked it in the corner of the nursery with a veiw of the window.

Simmons Kids Beautyrest Beginnings™ Luxury Firm crib mattress gives baby supportive, restful sleep with 231 pocketed coil springs. Our AllerCare™ feature is specially designed to help reduce indoor allergens in the mattress so your baby can rest easier. MoistureBan vinyl cover repels spills and wetness, and is specially-designed to resist wear and tear. Never needs to be flipped. Side air vents keep mattress fresh and all-around edge support provides extra firmness and durability.

When we got home, I did a little research. It looks like this crib retails from $400-$600 and the mattress from $150-$175. I couldn't believe we got both for only $100! GOD is so great!
