If you're in the mid-West Michigan area, there are a couple big "mom-to-mom" sales going on in Grand Rapids this weekend you'll want to know about!
This is such a great time to figure out what you need and plan ahead....and you'll have lots to choose from! It's like having tons of yard sales all together, under one roof, with no bad weather, and no driving around! =)
