Scottsdale: The Paradise Valley Mothers of Multiples Spring/Summer sale is happening this weekend! If you've never been to this fantastic sale, you MUST check it out - with summer coming up, I'm sure your little ones could use a few new (to them) dresses or pairs of shorts. The sale will have gently used clothing, baby items, toys, games, puzzles, outdoor toys, and MORE! Come and check out the great prices. There is a $3 entrance fee from 9am-12pm (if you're not a member of PVMOM), and after 12pm, you can shop without an entrance fee. They request no strollers or baby carriers or children before 12pm. (This is serious shopping, my friends!) Grab a few friends and head out to secure a summer wardrobe for a great price! They will also be collecting donations for the Paradise Valley Emergency Food Bank, so bring a few non-perishable food items to donate, too! 7am-2pm, Saturday April 28th, Scottsdale Bible Church, 7601 E Shea Blvd.
