Well, look at this haul! For $30 I got:
- A romper
- A t-shirt
- 2 pairs of pajamas
- A shape sorter with shapes
- Wooden number and color sorter
- Stacking cups
- Stackable animal-shaped cars
- Bag of wooden magnets
- World's most annoying Elmo firehouse with cars
- Wooden memory game
- An Elmo scratch-n-sniff board book
- A pair of sandals
Not a bad day's work!
If you're thinking about going to a consignment sale here are some tips that I try to keep in mind:
- Never pay more than 25 percent of the original price -- items should be at least 75 percent off, including designer brands
- Beware of the markup on items with their tags still on. Sometimes these aren't really that great of a deal because they are "brand new"
- Check out all areas of the sale -- you never know where a misplaced item can be. I found that wooden memory game in a completely random place, but its one of the best things I got
- Make sure to go to the consignment sale's website before you go, sometimes they have coupons for free admission, or half-price sale times
- Bring cash, that way you can't go over budget
- Use your smart phone -- check store sale/Amazon prices for brands and items your unfamiliar with
- Stop by the vendor tables for coupons or other deals, but sometimes these vendors will try to sell things at a "discount" but I've noticed the prices are still much higher than some stores sales
Anyone else have any other good consignment sale tips?
