A winter clearance sale at the beginning of winter? Count me in

I love how when my son loses his glove–yes, glove; always the left–the stores are completely sold out of them. In January. Well, there’s one “make way for the spring inventory even though winter just started” clearance sale I think you’re going to want to know about. [don’t miss a great discount after the jump!] Estella is a fancy pants (and tops and onesies) Children’s Boutique in New York City which carries fabulous kid’s clothes in sizes 0-6 that most of us could normally only lust after. Until now; starting today they are taking 75% off all their winter...

Great post-holiday sales from the boutiques we love

While we all know the department stores are slashing prices in their annual post-Christmas frenzy right now, some of our favorite small online shops are having amazing post-holiday sales too.

Here are a 7 nice sales that I think are worth a look.  –Liz ModCloth is having a Cheers to New Year’s Eve Sale. Get a dress, new shoes, and accessories all at...

The handbags that make me go all slack-jawed and tingly inside

You know that feeling when you’re browsing the racks of a favorite boutique and your eyes lock on something, and suddenly you feel yourself getting all sweaty and anxious and your heart is racing and your eyes widen and you just know you’re going to have to go to prom together? I mean…the cash register together? That’s how I felt the first time I laid eyes on one of the stunning handbags from Hayden-Harnett. It was exactly what I had been looking for for a year. Exactly. Well now you might feel the same way, only spending a whole...

I don’t usually have much patience for craft projects, but every holiday season, something comes over me and I feel the need to do something with glitter. Well, here’s a holiday gift for all of us crafting mavens and want-to-be crafting mavens (that would be me at the moment). Get 50% off all Martha Stewart craft items at Michael’s until December 24.

Lilluxe offers lots of luxury without the luxury prices

I’m the first to admit that discount sites can get overwhelming. I get so swept up in the dealiness of everything that I put a bunch of too-good-to-be-so-cheap things in my cart, second-guess every one, and then abandon the whole thing in favor of a calming cup of tea. Okay, maybe I’m not that bad. But even if I was–or if you are–Lilluxe offers the perfect antidote. [don’t miss some great offers after the jump] Why? Because everything on it is a) seriously cool (see the KidKraft Harley-Davidson over there?), and b) an amazing deal (on Lilluxe, that rocker is $50...

Cyber Monday Deal Alert – Handmade gifts at 40% off

As much as I’d love to make my own holiday gifts, I’ve come to the realization that with four kids I just don’t have the time. And quite frankly, even with all the time in the world, I’d never be able to make anything quite as amazing as the gorgeously upcycled goodies from Seven Smooches. [Don’t miss the amazing Cyber Monday offer after the jump!] Even with seven kids between them, creative moms Jennifer and Stacy use their sewing machine, recycled sweaters, and their wonderful imagination to create unique, whimsical kids clothes, accessories, and gifts unlike anything I’ve seen...

The long lost potholder loom of my misspent youth!

With all the awesome Black Friday sales online today, I’ve had the best morning avoiding the crowds at the stores. I’ve been cuddling up with my girls, watching the Mahna Mahna video for the zillionth time on you tube, and jumping online to grab a deal or two. When I got word that CMP fave Oliebollen was offering 25% off everything in stock today only, I clicked right over and oh man, am I glad I did. I was so excited to find the potholder loom of my own youth! I grabbed two right away. I can only hope...

25 super cool Black Friday shopping deals from sites we love. Aka Stay in your pjs tomorrow, mamas!

I’d like to think I’m fairly adventurous, but get up before 2AM to join the crowds running out on Friday to get a flat screen? That’s one adventure I think I’ll miss. So instead, we’ve gathered the best deals, discounts, and free shipping offers that start this weekend, from some of our favorite shops. Your first stop of course should be the Cool Mom Picks holiday gift guide, with discount codes towards toys from shops like Wild Dill,  Franklin Goose, Creative Toy Shop and Jade’s Toy Box (shown here), decor from O’Brien Schridde, jewelry from Lisa Leonard and Darlybird, and up to 20%...

These kids’ clothes will spice up my life too

So you’ve got a little girl who likes pink? Shockingly, I have one, as well. She loves purple, too, of course. And I admit freely that there are times I wish she’d wear any other color. But if you can’t beat ’em, join ’em –on your own terms, of course. Which is why I love the newest offerings from Masala Baby NYC. Pinks, purples, and then some. Truly, I’m going gaga over some of the gorgeous Indian-inspired offerings in their most recent collections. And what I love the most about the line is that it’s not your typical kids’...

It’s a card. That’s a gift.

I love the idea of giving out a little something more than a holiday card to my friends and family. Of course, I wish I could give everyone a gift, but since money doesn’t grow on trees, here’s another idea.[don’t miss a great offer after the jump] The WOOD Holiday Greeting Cards at Night Owl Paper Goods are adorable as a step up from a card but maybe not quite a gift. Made from eco-friendly birch wood, they have a personalized image on one side, and a calendar on the other. That way family and friends can remember you...

Starting today, it’s really (really, really, really) easy being green

You may already know we’re big fans of Barley & Birch here at CMP, and if you love this eco-conscious line of kids’ clothing as much as we do, then you’re probably going to want to know about their amazing Super Sale –beginning today–in celebration of the launch of their brand new website. And when they say “super,” they aren’t kidding.  Starting at noon today, their entire collection of Fall 2009 tanks will be $3 each. Seriously. $3.

Abe’s Market goes QVC, only not QVC. More like your laptop.

When I first discovered Abe’s Market last year, I thought of it as an online Farmer’s Market – goodies like small batch natural soaps, handmade baby blankets, organic vinaigrettes, and pretty much everything I love about our local Farmer’s Markets; besides the heirloom tomatoes and hot cider. Well they just introduced Abe’s Live, and starting today, if I were home at 2pm, I’d totally be watching that instead of whatever WHO’S THE BABY’S REAL FATHER! show is on then instead. On Abe’s Live, you can tun into a live, streaming webcast of the very vendors and artists who make...

Easy-peasy deals on local stuff you just might love

I’m not what you’d call the decisive type. When I shop online, I put my almost-purchases in the cute little cart icons and let them rest there while I construct (and reconstruct) mental pro and con lists as to why I should get them. (Yeah. I know.) Who has the time for this complex decision-making process? No one! That’s why Plum District is sorta right up my non-decisive alley. It’s a deal site geared mostly toward mamas, offering special prices on cool kiddo- and parent-gear from your city’s own local stores. Once a day, you get an email from...

This week only, Hasbro will take back your child-ravaged board games.

We’re board game freaks around my place, and now that I have kids old enough to play, we usually have game night at least once a week. That is, if we have all the pieces to them these days. Well hallelujah for a new event that’s letting you trade in your old, damaged, crayon-scribbled, or otherwise compromised board games for sweet savings on brand new ones. Now through Saturday, October 16, you can take any Hasbro board game you might have stuffed in a closet somewhere, bring it into Toys R Us, and get 30% off a new board...

Rockin’ deals on Rockin’ Baby Slings

I more than happily paid full price for my Rockin’ Baby Sling, and considering I wore it almost every day for six months with two out of my three kids, it was well worth it. But they’re currently selling all their stock for an exciting relaunch early next year, which means you can score amazing deals on one for yourself. There’s a reason why these were both Liz and my all time favorite sling, in particular their rockin’ baby pouch, which features gorgeous fabrics and a super smart zipper system that makes it adjustable without having to deal with a sometimes...

Last season’s kids clothes mean this season’s score

Though I’m definitely smitten with some of the pricier kids designer clothes, I’d much rather pay last season’s prices. Or less. So, if you’re like me and aren’t so concerned with what season your kids’ clothes are from, then I’ve got a boutique you’re going to love. Owner Janet Skolka stocks the virtual shelves of Jilly Bo Billy with cool baby and kids’ items from seasons past, plus and awesome sample sale finds, all of which are priced significantly lower than retail. Right now, there’s a whole ton of Misha Lulu clothing for girls, some marked down more than...

A match made in baby nursery decor heaven. (Is there such a thing?)

If I could, I’d spend all day shopping for home decor. But with a gaggle of kids, that whole bull in a china shop analogy springs to mind. Thankfully, I an lean on the membership sales sites like One Kings Lane and their crazy mad discounted prices. And this week they’ve got a super cool sale just for the design snob parents of the world. This weekend’s doozy of a Toastmaster Tag Sale features uber cool kid’s furniture designer and rock star wife Jennifer Delonge. Head there for access to some of her fave handpicked one-of-a-kind vintage pieces, plus–bonus–you’ll...
