Shopping for Children - More for your Money

Those of you who are local,  may be very interested in stopping in to shop at the children's consignment sale at Central Wesleyan Church tomorrow morning from 8AM - 2 PM (446 West 40th Street). The sale is put on by the Moms and Mentors group at the church and this year it is being organized by a friend of ours.

She just told me today that there are over 45 sellers for this year's sale!  Everything is well labelled and sorted by size and color.  This sale is just as convenient as shopping a department store, but easier on the budget. In addition to clothing the sale features toys, strollers, baby gates, bouncy seats, carriers, and so much more (basically, everything you would put on a baby registry is available at even better prices than when you use the  babies r us promotional codes) Yay! I think that each consignor is responsible for pricing their own items, so prices do vary on items based on who is selling them.  However, it is still garage sale type pricing with a % of each sale going to benefit this local mothers' group.

It looks like it could be seriously dangerous for me to step foot in that room as I would find loads of adorable little outfits - in the sizes we have already donated - that I would want to purchase for no reason other than their cuteness.    In fact, as Gabe finishes up with outfits and toys we have been  - sometimes tearfully - boxing them up to ship out of our house.  I am pretty confident that by next year's sale we could fill half the gym with our things alone. Anyway...

There is no fee for entrance to the sale and there is plenty of room for strolling your little ones through the aisles.  So, if you have young children, and are free for some shopping time tomorrow, it is certainly worth your while to check the sale out!
