The Just Between Friends consignment sale is this week in my area. My sister and I shopped at and reviewed this consignment sale. We checked out the selection of items and quality in order to share with those of you who have not been to one of these large scale consignment sales.
The most important thing to do to ensure success at a consignment sale is to go prepared!
Here is a list of things we did before we went to the sale:
- Go through all my kids fall clothes
- Make a list of what they have
- Make a list of what they need and sizes
- Check for special items (Halloween outfits, Christmas dresses, etc.)
- Don’t forget about shoes and accessories
Tips for during the sale:
- Shop without kids
- If the sale doesn’t provide bags, bring some
- Examine all items for damage
- Bring a friend to help
What we thought:
The selection was amazing! They had everything you could need. The prices are about 25% higher than a garage sale but you save a ton of time and gas money because everything is in one place. The line was super long-we waited about an hour and 20 minutes to check out!!! If you are going for just a few things it’s not worth the wait but if you got as much as we did than it is!
What they had:
The sale had strollers, car seats, beds, cribs, high chairs, toys, clothes, maternity, shoes, accessories, DVDs, books, Halloween outfits, and much more!
What we got:
I spent a little over $100! This seems like a lot but my girls now have everything they will need for fall/winter including Halloween and Christmas. Four of the dresses and both of their costumes were Gymboree!
- 4 sets of pajamas
- 2 Halloween shirts
- 2 Halloween costumes
- 1 Christmas dress
- 6 dresses
- 3 outfits
- 2 jeans
- 5 pairs of shoes
- 1 snow suit
- 3 pairs of tights
- 1 jacket
