Top 5 Consignment Shops

From first steps to school dances, kids today are all about wearing comfortable and stylish clothing. But at what cost to your wallet? As soon as you purchase a new outfit and shoes for your child, he’s already outgrown them and is on to a new phase. The same holds true for high chairs, baby swings and all the necessities you have when your little one is young. While they’re important to your baby’s growth and development at the time, as each month goes by they’re no longer needed, and the corner of the basement ends up looking like a mini baby store.


If you’re searching for a bargain, consignment stores make it easy to fill your shopping bags with gently used or new items for much less. And as you get ready for the back-to-school season, you can purchase fashionable clothing for your child without the hefty price tags.


Do you have clothing, gear and accessories cluttering up your closets and basement? If they’re in good condition, why not earn a little extra cash and consign them? You can use that money to pick up something else for your child, or put it in a savings account for college.  After years of consigning, that amount will definitely add up!


Whether you’re looking to consign clothing or gear, buy for your child’s next stage or both, you’ll find everything for your growing family’s needs at your local consignment store. Happy hunting!
