    Look what I swiped at the family garage sale...

    This is the carseat I refused to install for DH's aunt for her grandson b/c it was expired so she thought she'd try and sell it at the garage sale. She tried to tell me the trash was coming today, but I said it's o.k. I have one at home DH is taking to smash anyways so I'll just take it from you. I couldn't believe she was trying to sell it, for $10 none the less. It was made Jan 1999!

    Re: Look what I swiped at the family garage sale...

    Good job swiping it. I'm really cringing at the sticker on it about the "new stronger car seat handle" given the number of Evenflo's handle recalls over the years, including the recent Safe Embrace one.

    WEll, at least it looks really nice. I think that's the cleanest garage sale seat I've ever seen.
    If it seems like I'm not making sense, it's probably just my phone

    I have to agree there. The fact that the base still HAS that "stronger handle" sticker on is a shocker. And it makes me miss my OMW seat with the celestial cover (Well, the COVER at least. It was purdy lol)

    I liked the celestial cover too. It was Navy with gold stars, right?
