Quoting Mrs.Dani:" I was thinking about buying a actual ring sling/wrap. But I don't really have the money and I don't really NEED it. "
I sold like, half of our cloth diapers to fund my first Girasol ring sling. Discovered I didn't really like ring slings (I already had 3 homemade wraps at that point, a stretchy like moby, a gauze, and a cotton) so I sold that to fund my first "real wrap".
That brown Gira in the pic I just posted only cost me $50, and she let me make a few payments so it was easier to buy.
There are deals out there if you look around
(Though that was from a woman in my local BW group, and she shipped it to me before I had finished paying, which I though was super sweet and great that she trusted me (since I only know her from the fb group and have never actually met her).
I got a really really good deal on my Indio because it had an ugly dye job, lol. I just tried selling it for a few days ago because it's a 5 and I want a 3 (the brown gira is a 2) but it didn't sell. So I shortened it to a 3 and just ice dyed it. Looks pretty cool now. Using the scraps to make a purse.
