I count nine consignment sales across the region this week! The spring/summer sale season started more than a month ago. And, believe it or not, there are more sales after this weekend. (Check our consignment sale database for details).
But there are definitely lots of opportunities to stock up on Easter finery, summer clothes and books and toys to keep the kids busy during school breaks. (Note: Designer Consignors features only items for women, though tweens and teens who wear adult sizes or have started their own handbag collection will enjoy shopping this one too).
