Seasonal consignment shopping is a fast growing trend, especially for baby and children's items. Kids grow so fast, and items like clothes, strollers, car seats, cribs and toys many times seem barely used. Seasonal consignment sales offer a unique venue for both sellers and shoppers. These sales set up shop for a weekend or a few days more in the spring and fall. Some sales also offer a holiday sale around December that specializes in toys and holiday clothes.
About Seasonal Sales
Most sales offer a wide variety of items including clothing, baby gear, toys, children's furniture, and much more. Many also offer maternity and postpartum items. Great deals can be found on name brand merchandise such as Baby Gap, Ralph Lauren, Gymboree, Abercrombie, Peg Perego, Pottery Barn, Britax, and more. A little browsing can also turn up boutique items like Strausberg,
Mulberribush, American Girl, and Oilily at a fraction of what they cost new.
Why consignment sales?
The advantages to seasonal consignment sales are numerous:
- shoppers find better prices at seasonal consignment sales than at consignment shops
- the variety and quality of items is better than what is found at garage sales
- consignors usually keep a larger percentage of the price of their sold items
- there is none of the hassle that comes with advertising and holding a garage sale
