It's only February but the spring consignment sales are getting underway. Never been to a consigment sale? These wonderful little events offer gently used children's clothing, toys, and equipment. Clothing comes in all brands and sizes and most sale organizers encourage their consignors to only offer the nicest items -- rarely will you find clothes that are out of style, torn, or stained. Instead, most of the clothes are in good condition and are offered at incredible prices. Among my favorite consignment sale finds was a pair of barely-worn Stride Rite sneakers for $3 and a two-piece capri set for $2. If you are in the market for toys or baby gear, a consigment sale is a great place to start. Most sales have tons of items in these categories and are priced much cheaper than they would be new. In addition to toys and gear, many sales offer books, DVDs, CDs, hairbows, and other assorted items. Here is a list of consignment sales in the Memphis area. The list is growing so make sure you don't miss page two of the list. I'll be updating information as it becomes available. In the meantime, happy shopping!
