Where can I find a reasonably priced crib set?

My husband and I found out this week that we're expecting. My MIL is already hounding me about a crib. (This will be the first grandchild on both sides, but MY parents aren't being pushy. They're letting us bask in the excitement.) If I don't pick one out soon, I'll be stuck with what my MIL wants me to have, and she has HORRIBLE taste. Any suggestions?

  • Try Once Upon a Child if you have one. It is like a consignment store, they take in used cribs, furniture and all of it. The stuff has to be in great shape before theyll take it too. I got my granddaughters crib set there. It was white, came with a changing table and a dresser. I think I paid around $150 for all of it.

  • Craigslist.org if you live in a decent size town and you don't mind used.

  • also.... i would NEVER buy a used mattress. its linked to SIDs. I bought everything used other than the mattress, changing table pad (the table itself was used), bottles or anything that enters the mouth, or a carseat.
