September is always a huge month for children's consignment sales, the twice yearly sales that crop up in the spring and fall. I'll be chatting about consignment sales with the WRAL-TV morning news crew on Fox 50 around 8:30 a.m., Wednesday.
Right now, the sales, which are scattered around churches and empty storefronts, are typically featuring fall and winter clothes for kids and all sorts of furniture, accessories, shoes, toys and more. These are great places to stock up on clothes and other items for your kids for the coming months at great prices.
Many of the sales are run by local moms. Others are run by church groups, who use the sales as a fundraiser for their activities.
This week, we have two sales. The Sanford MOPS sale is 8 a.m. to noon, Saturday, at St. Luke United Methodist Church in Sanford. The cost to shop is $1. That qualifies you for a 50/50 raffle. The rest of the money goes back to the community and is used to support local groups.
Saving Graces Kids Consignment Sale at Nashville United Methodist Church is open to the public from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m., Friday, and 8 a.m. to 1 p.m., Saturday, (when some items are half off).
And there are many to come in the coming weeks, including five next weekend - KidzStuff and Good 2 Grow Kids in Raleigh; Chapel Hill Durham Mothers of Multiples Sale in Chapel Hill; Take 2 Kids Consignment in Benson; and Duck Duck Goose in Wilmington.
Plus, the massive Kids Everywear sale at the Morrisville Outlet Mall is open to the public Sept. 20 to 23. Its special Shop for a Cause charity event starts at 10 a.m., Sept. 15, when shoppers can make a donation so they can shop early.
