How to prepare to shop at Classy Kids Consignment sale.

by Mona Tisler on 09/28/11

Consignment shopping for kids, baby and maternity items can save you a ton of money!  You could save up to 90% off the retail price!  Why would you pay $230 for an Eddie Bauer travel system which includes the stroller and infant carrier when you get the same thing at Classy Kids Consignment for under $100??! 

If this is your first time shopping with Classy Kids Consignment or your tenth time it is always good to be prepared to shop a sale. 

  • Go through the kids closets and dressers to see what they need.  Try be detailed in your notes.  i.e. Joey needs 3 short sleeve shirts red/black/blue size 3T
  • Write down the kids measurements and shoe sizes and bring a tape measure when you shop.
  • If Joey is a size 2T shop ahead in the 3T section.  Bigger is better.
  • Brands are important!  Do you homework on brand names.  There is a difference between Carters, Gap, Gymboree, Hanna Andersson, etc.  Sizing, quality and durability can be different between brands and that affects the price.
  • Bring your phone with web access.  If you don't know what a good price is on a Little Tikes climber you can look it up on your phone.
  • We inspect each item that comes in for consignment but imperfections can be missed.  Look over your items carefully before purchasing.
  • Shop non clothing items first.  Strollers, climbers, baby equipment, etc.. sell fast!
  • Bring a basket or cart on wheels to make shopping easier.
  • Shop without the kids. 
  • Set a budget.
  • We accept cash, Visa and Mastercard (don't forget your ID).
  • Do not bring strollers with baskets!
What tips do you have?
