Baby clothes at a large consignment sale, Kidsignments

Baby clothes at Kidsignments, a large consignment sale in Georgia

Parents of young children can save money and help the environment by shopping at consignment sales and stores. Twice a year in northeast Georgia consignment sales abound, selling cheap barely-used children’s clothes. This shouldn’t be surprising, since children, especially babies, grow so fast they may use an outfit only once. I’ve shopped at three sales so far and have been impressed by the quality, price, and selection of clothing, toys, books, furniture, and other paraphernalia. The sale volunteers are strict about accepting only clean and modern clothes. Some stained items seem to sneak through, so you should always check the clothing before purchase. I’ve bought shirts for $0.50-$2.00 and splurged on a $4.00 shirt. Pants and shorts have ranged from $1.00-$4.00. And last year I bought a winter coat for $8.00. The sales are held twice a year with clothing available for the upcoming two seasons. For example, this August I’ll be shopping for my child’s fall and winter clothes. Sales vary greatly in size from local church events to mega-sales held in large fairground or conference center buildings. I spend about $65-$85 dollars on clothes for two seasons for one child. And no one has a clue the clothes weren’t store-bought. Below is a list of a few sales in northeast Georgia, or check out The Bargain Watcher [1] to search for a sale near you.
