I've always been a fan of high-end resale clothing, and frequently find treasures for myself at places like Buffalo Exchange, Crossroads, and local boutiques. So it makes sense that instead of buying insanely-priced new clothes for my soon-to-be-born baby, I'd find cute resale kids clothes at consignment stores as well. Kids grow so fast. Frequently, kids consignment clothing has only been worn once or twice and it's a fraction of the cost of buying new!
You can find used kids clothes online, but it can be difficult to tell the size and condition of an outfit from photos alone. Also, shipping can cost a fortune. Local consignment shops for kids are great, but can be difficult to find and sometimes aren't the best value, as store owners pay a hefty overhead for rental space. The very best place to buy and sell your kids clothing is at a consignment sale, which gathers community members to buy and sell their clothing. Parents exactly what they're getting, and can find high-quality clothing at rock-bottom prices.
If you're a parent living in San Diego, you have to check out Trunk Treasures. Trunk Treasures is a semi-annual consignment sale for moms and kids that helps parents keep their kids looking stylish – without breaking the bank. Clothes, toys, furniture, strollers, books, play equipment and more is sold at the event. The next Trunk Treasures show will be held May 1st-6th at the San Diego Swiss Park – Swiss Club (just off the Main Street exit of the 5 in Chula Vista at 2001 Main Street). You can get all the details at the Trunk Treasures website, or check out Trunk Treasures on Facebook or Twitter.
