Should You Save Vintage Baby and Nursery Clothes, Playthings and Accessories

Downsizing Your Collection of Saved Vintage Baby Clothes and Toys

It was very difficult but I finally let go of many of the boxes of old nursery toys and clothes that I was saving for my grandchildren. It was a very nice fantasy, I would pass down newborn kimonos, Stretchy pajamas, bibs, toys etc. to my grandchildren when they were born.

Time to Let Go Of Crumbling Old Baby Gear and Acessories

Ha, ha, was I mistaken. First of all if you save some of these outfits and playthings things long enough you will find out that they dry up and become brittle. Yes, the elastic on outfits crumbles. Bibs lose their softness. Clothes yellow and take on a musty smell and stains you swear you never saw before suddenly appear. Even if these nursery items are packed away in a strong plastic tote, they generally will not pass inspection by todays new parents who are even fussier than you were.
