Consignment Haul 2013

Some of you may have noticed that it was a little slow around here last week. Well, this spring I volunteered to be on a committee that organizes this giant consignment sale as a fundraiser for the ECFE {Early Childhood Family Education} school program that Henry is a part of. Our sale was held this past weekend which left me with a lot of work and very little time.

In fact, between set up, the sale, and clean up, I was away from home from 1:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. on Friday and from 5:15 a.m. to 4:00 p.m on Saturday. While the hours were pretty long, the reward was great -- look what I was able to pick up!!



This is everything except a booster seat and a tiny cozy coupe toy which Henry refused to put down even for a picture.



The clothes included 9 sleepers, 7 short sleeved shirts, 2 pairs of shorts, 4 long sleeved shirts, rubber boats, and a wool sweater vest.



The toys were pretty varied and included flashcards, a wooden hammering toy, wooden rattle, an Elmo Farm, magnets, a doctor's kit, an awesome dressing board puzzle, and small plastic animals.

I think my best find was this large bag of Schleich brand farm animals for only $10!! I about died when I saw the price. They could have easily been twice the price and I would have happily bought them! Total steal!




In total, I spent around $70!! This was one of my best sales yet! I love consignment sale season. Anyone else consignment shopping this spring? Anyone find any amazing deals?

Would you like to comment?

Great finds! It is wonderful that you helped organize this. I am looking forward to checking out some garage/yard sales. There is also a consignment store in my hometown that I love.

We have a growing kids sale here where I live, that sounds very similar to yours! We have a spring and fall sale, and they are the times where we do the bulk of our shopping for all five of my kids - I LOVE them and look forward to them probably more than I should!

Dang, I've a hankering for those sweet farm animals--I always keep my eyes open at the thrift store; I can't handle the price for new. I just have this crazy faith that if I look long enough, I'll find them.

Awesome finds! I just LOVE consignment sale time, the one in the fall, I usually buy almost all of Lennox's Christmas presents!

I seriously could not get over it! It came with a cardboard farm too, but it was really beat up and a different brand. I seriously just think they must not have known what they had -- that's around $50 worth of animals!

Wow! That is a great source of savings. I love seeing what everyone else finds, too. Yay for great bargains!
