Kids Consignment You'll Adore!

Thrift Sale Season

Are you a "sale" sign follower?

Are you a “sale” sign follower?

I sit here and contemplate my Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays during the spring/summer.  My husband is a thrifter, in fact, he nearly gives us whiplash if he sees a sign all for the elusive item he didn’t know he thinks he needs for a good deal!

It seems that SO many forget that our little store exists this time of year.

Most of the thrift sales I have stopped at the last 1-2 years, the children’s items are priced at or above where I would price it at That’s Adorable.

That’s Adorable closes the Saturday of the East Hill 90+ thrift sales (May 16, 2015) because I never have any shoppers, yet I see these posts….

  • “ISO:  Boys 18 month+”
  • “Looking for little boys newborn through toddler, I never find any at thrift sales”
  • “Iso 9 month boy summer clothes”
  • “ISO cloth diapers ….. also 9/12 month girl stuff at 3/6, 6/12 month shoes”
  • “I’m looking for girl clothes, sizes 5 – 7. Anyone??”
  • “ISO: Girls clothes sizes 0-12months, 4-5T, and 14-16. Also any baby girl or gender neutral gear!:-)”
  • “Looking for board games. Anyone?”
  • “Iso: infant toys”

I have LOTS of these items in amazing condition from 150 local families!

Obviously, I cannot help you find that coffee table, mission style piece of antique furniture or Wii games but I can help you find great kids clothing, toys, books and locally-handcrafted gifts at reasonable prices.  Especially in those smaller sizes.

So good luck in your pursuit of the best deal, but don’t overspend because you feel it is your only used option!

Remember, to support your small local businesses, we rely on YOU!
