There seems to be a new trend in consignment sales. Has it hit your area? A move from regular consignment shops to several week long or weekend long consignment sales. These are mega consignment sales, not like the ones hosted at local churches. It’s hard on the regular consignment shops and for MONTHS after these big sales I will see yard sales with the clothes that didn’t sell at the consignments.
I visited two of these consignment sales on the last day when everything was marked half price. I was able to find a lot of things for my two youngest girls (5 and 6) and a couple things here and there for some of the other kids.
A denim jumper, pair of capris, pair of shorts and 6 tops for Sadie, Savannah and Alyssa (9).Four tops for the bigger girls, Amber (13) and Alyssa (9).We have 4 boys and I walked away with this one outfit for Matthew (10).
I purchased all of that for a $32.
Do you have trouble finding clothing for your boys second hand?
I generally steer clear of consignment sales because the prices are considerably higher than yard sales, but a friend was telling me that if you go to these big, short-term consignment sales on the very first day you can find great deals on quality clothing. Have you found that to be true or are the prices still higher than yard sales?
