  • Ebay, Salvation Army, Toys for Tots (if you have one in your area, they give toys to needy families).

  • or any local consignment shop. they are great. Usually pretty low prices for both clothing and toys :) i love it. My week is filled with checking out each shop on different days. If your anything like us... your broke lol so for me to be able to buy a $20 toy at a consignment for only $1.50 IM IN HEAVEN :) You should deffinitly checkthem out in your area or go on line to see where they are located near you. Good luck and i hope you find lots of good steals :) Hope you and your family have a warm and loving Christmas.

  • I just sold a 70.00 toy on Craigslist for 30.00. I am always sure that I meet teh buyer or seller in a public place with many people all around ie. Starbucks. I've had a lot of success both buying and selling, so I'm glad I have that venue. You can also go on their "Tips" site and they will tell you all about how to be safe and how to avoid scams.
