Our Stylish Kids Children’s Consignment Sale + Giveaway



I love a good sale. In fact, most of the items I have purchased for the new baby have come from the consignment or thrift store. I can't imagine paying ridiculous amounts for clothing, gear and other baby items that will probably be outgrown in not time. So, I figured I could justify more of my purchases by shopping on a budget.

And boy have I found some great deals.


Whenever I found out about a local children's consignment sale, I was all ears (and pennies). The thought of being able to purchase affordable items, AND sell a few of my own, was enough incentive for me to do a little research.

Welcome, Our Stylish Kids Children's Consignment Sale


Background:
After being laid off, I was looking for ways to cut our family budget and still dress my kids in nice clothes. I heard about a children’s consignment sale and decided to check it out. I was amazed by the variety of items, both gently used and new with tags. I was able to purchase so many cute clothes for my daughter at unbelievably low prices. I was sold! After participating in consignment sales for several years as a seller and buyer, I wanted to find one closer to my home in Southern Prince George’s County. The closest ones I found were in Virginia and going towards Baltimore but nothing in my immediate community. I wanted to bring a consignment sale to Southern Prince George’s County and help the community benefit from not only the savings, but the earnings.

About the Sale:
The Our Stylish Kids Consignment Sale is a seasonal infant and children’s consignment sale featuring new and gently used infant and children’s clothing, nursery accessories, shoes, videos, toys, furniture, books and other accessories. Our goal is to provide a friendly, fun and affordable shopping experience for everyone who comes through the door. We seek to create an avenue for parents to sell good quality items their children no longer use or need, subsequently providing cost savings for the community, income for sellers and donations to charity.

For this year's sale, we are accepting spring/summer items so in addition to the above mentioned items, we will have Easter outfits, summer toys, light jackets and the like.

Seller shop before the public on March 22nd from 6:30-8pm.

You should probably clear your schedule for this event. I hear that these types of sales are fantastic. Just the other day, a woman stopped me in the store to tell me she left with two, huge trash bags of items for her children for a low price. She must have seen 'frugal' written on my forehead.

I'm hoping that I can attend this event. Barvey has been a bit of a scare each time I visit the doctor's office. In two more more weeks, anything is possible.

For now, owner Chelai Johnson is offering two (2) passes to the consignment presale, which normally is for consignors only and would allow you to shop before the public.


Prize: Two winners. One pass each to the consignment presale.
