Spring consignment sale time is now! With the warmer weather promising to stay more now I've been going through my son's clothing figuring out what still fits and what needs to be replaced. Lately it seems as if he is growing fast out of his pants, so thankfully it's almost time for shorts weather. And just in time is my chance to shop for great deals at the Just Between Friends Philly sale!
This week I'll be shopping at a preview sale at the Just Between Friends consignment sale in Oaks, PA. It's a HUGE sale held twice a year and I've had the chance to attend the preview sale several times now. I've been going to local consignment sales since my son was a baby and in need of those things like jumpers and baby toys that are used briefly and then discarded. Not only have I been able to buy items at deep discounts, but I've even sold a number of things too. What I love about the JBFPhilly sale is that is is huge with a great variety of brands. I've found that the items for sale are of higher quality than other sales I've attended. I think that's because they have a good system for quality control at the JBFPhilly sales.
Some of my best finds at the JBFPhilly sale has been bathing suits (for $3!) and Legos! Last spring I purchased ziplock bags filled with a variety of Legos. I used them to fill Easter eggs for my son, instead of candy. It was a hit and at a huge savings. I've also had luck finding dress-up costumes and play clothes.
At the sale this week I'm looking for bathing suits and rash guards, Keen sandals, and outdoor toys for the summer of fun. Since my son is now starting to enjoy reading chapter books, I'll be checking out the book section, as well as the DVDs to see if I can find anything for our family movie night features. What I love about shopping at a consignment sale is that often times items are brand new or like new condition but at a fraction of their retail price.
To be ready to shop, I plan to wear comfortable shoes, have my list of my son's sizes and needs on my phone, and to bring a huge bag for stashing my finds. I'll share my finds later in the week!
The Just Between Friends Philly sale will be open this week from April 24 to 26th. Check out the official schedule for times and location details. Thanks to Real Mom Media and JBFPhilly for providing me with entry to the presale so I can share the fun with my readers!
I had a blast at this spring's sale! I found almost everything I was looking for, and then some. The best find for me was a swim shirt/rash guard shirt that was not only brand new with tags at $8, but was a lifeguard design, which delighted my Jr. Lifeguard! I found three great bathing suits, all for $3 each, some PJs, tee shirts and shorts, along with a few books. It was a great sale! Check it out this fall for the next sale in Oaks.
