I love our consignment store! We don't buy much from their but I love getting a little something back on all the $ spent on kids clothes.

I've never taken anything TO consignment though I've bought a lot FROM consignment. That sounds like a good deal, though!!

One thing I don't get is how picky they are when buying my stuff (which I understand) but then I look to buy and I see so many stains and worn out spots. Not sure where they sell all the "good" clothes at because I rarely find anything.

They wanted $8 for a used pair of jeans. Um... I can buy new name brand jeans for under $10.

I really appreciate their service though. It is great in theory.

Yea, I've had the same experience. Some of my stuff looked practically brand new to the naked eye, but they told me they use a special light to look for stains. But I see stuff out on the racks with fading, stains, or missing buttons all the time. Shoes is the one thing they will take dirty though, lol!

We havew a Once Upon a Child, but I haven't really gotten rid of much kid/baby stuff so it really doesn't help me out much
 


BUT we are going to the Oktoberfest grounds on Saturday where they are having a HUGE rummage sale. You "rent" a space for $10, they do all the advertising, and you can sell anything you want as long as it's legal. SO I've already gotten a bunch of stuff around, and I have a few home-made items I'd like to sell, so a friend of ours and I are going! She's making pies and other baked goods and she has some rummage items to sell. We're hoping to get a spot next to each other (spaces are reserved, but not any specific place. It's kind of first come first served to those that "reserved" a spot!)

The only bad thing about this is that I'll have to be there by around 6:15... I'm not usually out of bed until 9
 
Oh well, if we make some money off all this it'll be worth it!
