Already at our house we are cleaning out closets and starting to assess the back to school needs for our Mini Macaronis! I have piles of clothing from each--some of it barely worn-- that they have outgrown. The good news is I know just what to do with it! I'll be consigning it at the Berks Kids Closet kids and teen outgrown sale coming to the Lebanon Expo on Sept. 10.
I've been a consignor with Berks Kids Closet for years now, and it's an easy way for me to turn their outgrown clothes, old toys and books, and other gently used items into cash. I tag it, drop it off, and then just wait for the check. No worrying about weather for a yard sale, no stress about trying to meet people from a facebook group, just pure simplicity.
Here are what some parents have to say about consigning with Berks Kids Closet.
"Berks Kids Closet is absolutely the best way to sell my kids' outgrown toys, books, and clothing. By selling through Berks Kids Closet, I can get rid of all my stuff in one weekend! Plus, I quickly receive a nice check that I can use toward purchasing new clothes for my kids (or me!)"
"This was my first time consigning and I was amazed at how smooth and organized the entire event was."
"Went down with two huge totes and four 18-gallon totes. Came home with half of an 18-gallon. I am thinking it was an excellent sale."
Important Points to Note:
- You set your own prices (with 50 cent increments)! You can also mark items that you want to allow to be sold for half-price during the half-off sale from 1-2 p.m. on Saturday.
- It's worth it to volunteer! Consignors who volunteer to work earn 70% of sold items minus registration fee. Non-volunteering consignors earn 60% of sold items minus registration fee. Volunteering consignors also can shop earlier on Friday than non-volunteers.
- New this fall is an electronic tagging system for people who prefer that method. Hand-written tags will still be accepted. Details are in their online How to Manual.
- Items you do not sell can either be picked up at the end of the sale or donated to charity.
