Looking for 2 Cribs
We are expecting twins in April. I wanted to put this out there are see if I get any responses. I am looking to purchase 2 gently used cribs (preferably the ones that convert to a toddler/day bed). It is so expensive and we weren't planning on having two! If anyone out there would be willing to sell thier items for less than store prices, please email me at ____@____.com. Thanks!

My daughter is 2 1/2 and is just about ready for a big gril bed. The crib she is in does not turn into a toddler bed. But it is a high quality dark oak (I forgot the brand). I remember when we bought it we looked for something very sturdy.
I would also include the crib matress if you want to buy the crib.

Once upon a child is a great place to look at for cribs. The ones in downers grove and villa park both have furniture.
Good luck and congrats!!!!!

I have twins too. I know they have groups for mother's with twins and once a year they sell their stuff in a school in Arlington Heights. Sorry I don't know more about it. I think it's in the spring. But maybe there are other twin groups who have sales at different times during the year. Try and Google it. Also try resale shops. Once Upon A Child is a good one but I cannot remember if they sell furniture or try e-bay.

CONGRATS to you! I would try Once Upon A Child. They do sell gently used furniture there. I go to the one in St. Charles off of Kirk Rd. The last time I was in there they had some really nice ones for reasonable prices.
Good luck to you and your expanding family!
