How to Shop a Consignment Sale for the Best Bargains?

By now you’ve heard a lot of buzz, but you may be wondering...how DO you shop a consignment sale? Here are the top tips from some well-seasoned shoppers:

  • Go early and have time to spare – With thousands of clothes, toys and equipment to choose from, go early and give yourself extra time to shop. Slow down and look through all the racks. Enjoy the thrill of the hunt! There are amazing deals to be found!
  • Know what you need – Go through your children’s closets and drawers beforehand and make a list of what’s needed. Think about seasonal needs and put sizes right on your list. Don't forget to plan for the long-term. You may want to get one size for spring and summer and then size up for fall and winter items to last your child through to the next sale.
  • Plan which areas of the sale you’ll shop first – Look for what you need most first. The best baby gear items go fast, so go there first if that’s on your list.
  • Leave the kids at home – You will find shopping more enjoyable if you leave your little ones at home.
  • Leave your strollers at home, too - Strollers aren’t allowed on the selling floor.
  • Bring a friend – Shopping is more fun with a friend!
