Saving With 6abc
100 consigners offer great deals on children's items
DOYLESTOWN, Pa. - March 13, 2009 (WPVI) -- Throughout the afternoon one minivan after another pulled up outside the Doylestown Senior Center, as preparations got into full swing for this weekend's Kids Kloset Swap.
The Kids Kloset Swap is a huge sale where 100 consigners -- mostly moms of young children -- will be selling everything from clothes to shoes to toys and baby gear at deeply discounted prices.
This is the ninth sale that Denise Ardis and her sister, Donna Soura, have organized over the past five years.
Some of the items are new with tags. A Carter's infant snowsuit that was originally $65, will be on sale for just $15. A Gap shearling jacket, with the tags, is just $10. Barbies -- new in their boxes -- are $12.
Others items are gently used. We found tiny sneakers from Nike and Disney with clean soles and $6 price tags.
A Petunia Pickle Bottom diaper bag, which retails for well over $100, is just $15.
A beautiful bassinet is priced at $20. And a Ralph Lauren toddler dress is just $6.
Consigners use a computer program to tag and price their merchandise at home before the sale.
They say the Kids Kloset Swap is not only a great place to shop, but also an opportunity to get clutter out of their homes and pick up extra cash.
Consigners get 60% of the sale proceeds. Denise & Donna get 40% for their work organizing, renting the hall and publicity.
The sale runs from 8 o'clock until 1 o'clock on Saturday.
Then, prices on remaining items are cut in half for the conclusion of the sale on Sunday.
For information about this sale, and another one the sisters are planning for May, check out the Kids Kloset Swap website.More money-related links:
