I love shopping consignment sales. But even more than shopping I love selling my children’s outgrown things at consignment sales. I participate in two sales every year…well it’s the same sale that happens twice a year. It is at the Gwinnett County Fairgrounds and it’s called Kidsignments (www.kidsignments.com). They have a sale in February every year and another in August. I have been shopping this sale for 9 years! I have only missed one sale in all that time and I really get some great deals. Here is the bounty I bought last night at the seller’s preview shopping night. I shopped until I was about to drop!
I have three children…ages 9, 7 and 3. I bought 55 things for $230. (Two of those items were coats and cost me $30 so then it makes it 53 things for $200.) I told you they were great deals. Everything I bought looks like new or is very gently loved. I love this sale because they are super organized. Everything that they take is in great condition and they have such a variety of things. I find great deals every single year. I usually break even on what I spend and what my check is for selling. It’s amazing!
How can you not love a big sale…shopping with friends?! We always have a great time.
Sometimes the collecting of outgrown things, hanging them, printing tags, pricing items and getting things all dropped off is too much for people. I have decided that each season I will be accepting a few clients that I will offer a tagging service for. And anytime you have some things you just want me to take off your hands and be rid of them…if I can sell them I will surely take them!
If you’re local you should head over to the sale this week. It opened to the public this morning and Friday many items are 25% off and then Saturday many items are 50% off. I promise you won’t walk out empty handed!
Do you like consignment shopping or does it overwhelm you?
