Kids Consignment Sales are the Real DealI only recently discovered kids consignment sales. Not stores, but big sales where the organizers rent a huge space, coordinate hundreds of consignors who want to sell their items, and host a giant sale. Ok, maybe I'm in the dark here, but we just recently moved from a very rural area, so there wasn't a lot of that happening out there.
Two weeks ago, I decided to jump right in. Most of the sales are staffed by volunteers, and the perks of volunteering are that you get to shop first! Yes, please! And I'm so glad I did. Not just for the amazing deals I got (for instance, this $20 mint condition wagon!), but because it was really fun, and I met a lot of other like-minded moms. And you really don't have to be a volunteer or shop first for great deals --I can't believe the amount of deals I missed when I was cashing people out after I shopped.
I just can't get over how ingenious these sales are. It's a win-win for both the consignors and the shoppers. By far, my newest favorite economical (i.e., cheap) & environmental (think about all that Little Tykes plastic being reused instead of tossed in a dumpster) shopping idea. I just wish I could find more! I heard they're really big down south. Can anyone fill me in on more in the northeast?
