hand me downs? garage sales?

my husbands family on his moms side is nice (for the most part) and i know they dont have a lot of money but how do i tell them that i just DONT want baby things from garage sales (like cribs,toys,clothes,etc.) and the hand me downs they give me always come with stains and are so worn. how i tell them and not sound like a rich snobby yuppy?

  • Beggars cant be choosy. You get what you get and be grateful for what they give you. No everyone can afford new things and you need to get over it. I bought a new travel system for our daughter and a new crib and crib set and we got some new things and a lot of my nieces hand me downs that were in good condition along with the swings and toys and other things. Buy it new yourself if your that selfish.
