Sources for Kids "stuff"
We have two boys, a 6 year old and a "soon-to-be" 4 year old. As I'm sure many on this forum can attest, they grow like weeds, and wear out everything at a surprising pace! As a result, we tend to look for "value" purchases. I don't mind paying a resonable amount (I don't NEED name brands, but don't object to them if the quality makes them worthwhile) for something, but tend to look at the overall economics when buying clothing, accessories, etc. for my kids (and myself). So, we wind up buying a lot of our kids clothes, shoes, etc., at Target, Sears, or other such stores.
This will be our first summer with our boat, and we need to get some "stuff" for our boys. Particularly, shoes with non-marking soles. We had the boys on the boat a few times when we got her in October, and I saw lots of black marks on the deck which I think were from their sneakers, so I'm anxious to remedy that problem. Does anyone have any good sources for kids boating-related clothes, shoes, accessories, etc.? Or recommendations for good brands of kids stuff? I've seen the Sperry kids shoes, but I'm reluctant to spend $50+ on shoes they'll only wear a few weekends. Are there other brands that people recommend?
Any pointers/feedback is appreciated!
