    Upcoming Consignment/Tag Sales

    This came up on another thread, so I figured I'd start a new one so this info doesn't get buried elsewhere.

    There are a number of organization-sponsored Tag Sales and Consignment sales coming up this spring.  I'll post what I know about Mother of Twins Club Sales, and hopefully others will post about their local mother's groups or other Consignment Sales so we'll have a fairly comprehensive, geographically diverse list.

    Forgive my ignorance, but what sorts of items are likely to be found at these sales? Mainly clothes? Equipment? Toys? All of the above? And for what ages? Infants? Toddlers? Preschool?
    TIA for any additional information.

    Amy, At the ones I have been to, you can bascially find anything for Toddlers and under.  Not sure about any older but I have never looked so there could be.  You can get great deals on strollers and other equipment for grandparents, even high chairs, exersaucers, shoes, bumbos, etc...

    Re: Upcoming Consignment/Tag Sales

    The MOT sales have lots of clothes, toys, and other equipment.  They're great for strollers, pack 'n' plays, bouncy seats, toys, books, etc.  I buy almost all of my kids' clothes at my MOT club's sale.  Even my mother, who was a bit snobbish about second-hand stuff (even non-clothes stuff)initially is a total convert now that she's seen that the stuff I've gotten is very good quality.  She's even started going to the sales to get stuff for the kids to have at her house and for some of her great-nieces and nephews. 

    I think most of these sales have fairly strict rules about not selling recalled items or broken items and items missing parts.  I know in order to be a seller at my club's sale, we have to sign a statement that we aren't selling anything recalled or broken.

    Daisy is right.  There are strict guidelines (laws?) from the CPSC for reselling kids items.  I am in charge of kids items our Churches rummage sale.

    I have been to this one- just happened a few weeks ago (and only happens twice a year), but the quality has been pretty good.
    http://www.consignmycloset.com/ it is a little bit of a drive- but the freeways make it quicker

    Re: Upcoming Consignment/Tag Sales

    Canuk - I had no idea Westford had one (or a town yard sale for that matter)...which is funny and kind of sad since I teach there at the school that it is going to be located at.

    Re: Upcoming Consignment/Tag Sales

    Winter--ABSOLUTELY!  I would say most of the people that go don't have twins and the sales are geared toward anyone looking for kids' clothes, toys, and equipment.

    LLL do you live out this way or just work out here?

    Westford Town Wide Yard sale day is almost as awesome as one of these tag sales for picking up kid stuff on the cheap!  There are so many famiilies in town that most of the sales are full of kid stuff!
