All the rules were broken during this consignment sale trip. Every child was in tow, the purse was empty of snacks and the toy section was carefully searched over for the perfect toy (that will eventually make its way into next season’s consignment sale). Yet, we managed to make it out in under an hour and snag a few items for my oldest son’s summer wardrobe.
Older boys’ clothes in decent shape can be tricky to find, but I was able to find a few items to add to my son’s summer wardrobe. This came out to $22 for the six items.
The best thing to look for at consignment sales is discontinued or rare toys. This car track set is a popular inexpensive toy in our house of boys. The tracks now stretch all through the living room, dinning room and kitchen. The $15 spent was worth it for the four cars alone.
If the children come to one of these crazy sales, it is worth the few dollars to pick out a toy to make it through the line! My youngest found the pirate costume for only $7 and plans to wear it to get his free donut at Krispy Kreme on dress like a pirate day. We plan things super far in advance in our house.
Final tip: I shopped the Super Kids Resale event during dinner time. Not the most ideal time with children in tow, but the check-out line was much shorter and there was significantly fewer people. We even managed to find a parking spot within viewing distance of the front door!
Here are a few more items you might not expect to find at a children’s consignment sales.
