I could hardly sleep last night because I found this website and was totally excited!http://www.alternativegiftregistry.org/
We're having our first baby in March and my traditional family wants to have a baby shower. I politely declined the bridal shower because we were already living together and had everything that we needed to live with! But, we have no baby stuff and could use some help. I didn't want to register for all squeaky-clean brand new stuff when I would much prefer gently-used items in most cases. This site allows you to make a free registry indicating what kinds of things you would like/need, in second-hand form, as well as any particular new items you need and services (baby-sitting, meal prep during the first few weeks, etc). It is a dream come true! I only wish I had thought of it first! Can't wait to build my list!
