  • We have one that comes to my town 2 times a year and I stock up at the sale and get just about everything my kids need there. The only thing I don't pick up on consignment is play clothes, which I buy at WalMart. I also sell items we no longer need at the consignment sale for extra money.

  • consignment sales are amazing. they can be hectic, so make a list of what u need before you go. other wise, u will go away with stuff you never knew existed and things u may not ever need. if you're like most families, there is just never enough money to buy all the clothes, toys, and supplies you need. and most sales have great prices. even if you dont find anything you dont like, you will atleast get a feel for what other consignment stores or sales can have. idk if u have ever heard of these, but these are a couple of the consignment sales in my area. "Duck, Duck Goose" and "Rhea lana's" (my fave is rhea lana's... if ur an expectant mom, they give u a pass for pre-sale event which means u get to shop before the public does)

  • I have had pretty good luck, but I never wait until the mark down days. I find that the good stuff is gone and the rest is eh.

  • I love consignments, I dont think Ive ever been to a sale.Ive never heard of a traveling sale but I am sooo intrigued? Sounds like it would be awesome. Yes, yes, definately go! I have 5 kids and my kids have always dressed to a tee. I know how impt. it is to have nice clothes to fit in, well, I just did'nt want them to have to worry about being judged badly so I tried hard to keep them looking nice. Anyway, having five I had to be smart about how I shopped and if it was'nt clearance shopping I went to consignment shops. Alot of the clothes still had the tags on them and had never been worn. Most shops are very picky and only accept the clothes in the best shape.They buy the clothes that come in, usually giving that person a credit once the clothes sell. I went the other day and picked up clothes for my daughter(12) with names like, Hollister, Amer. Eagle, Victoria Secret, Abercrombie&Fitch...so yeah, Good Luck and have fun
