New West Baby and Tot Swap Meet

Welcome to the first (hopefully of many) ThistleBEA Baby and Tot Swap Meet! We are thrilled to be able to offer this resource to our community so parents can come together to buy and sell gently used baby and kid items. Being a parent can be so obtusely expensive so this is one way to reduce that expense. 10% of net profits will be benefiting the Tri Cities Moms Group hamper program. We will also be hosting other fundraising efforts at the event. Looking forward to seeing you all there!
