Consignment Sales

I first stepped foot in a children's consignment store in Connecticut, where I went in search of maternity clothes and left with all I needed plus a car seat and some baby clothes. Here in Chattanooga, I was a little disappointed in the local consignment stores (okay, to be fair, I've only been to the one on Hixson Pike near Ely Rd.). Then, some very nice friends at church let me know about the local semi-annual consignment sales. The first one I attended was the Jack & Jill sale at EastGate Mall, and I was hooked! I bought the bassinet and infant swing I needed, and lots of cute baby girl clothes. I think I'm even more excited about them since I have a cute baby girl to dress! I don't see why I should spend $30+ on an outfit when I can spend $5 or less and it looks the same as after I wash the new one.

In an effort to help me keep up with when the sales are, I have added a section to my blog (on the right) where I have links to the sales' websites. A few are coming up soon, so check them out! Oh, and if you know of any that I have not listed, please let me know and I will add them.

Thanks for putting this info on your blog. I will use it often! I went to a brand new resale shop last week called Little Darlings near La Fiesta across from the BiLo (and Details) in Dallas Bay, which I loved. She has babies, children's and maternity clothes plus baby gear too. I bought some of the cutest summer maternity clothes on 50% off.

I also just read in the Hixson Community News that there is a resale shop on Hixson pike next to A Barnes Fence Company called the Corner Closet with the same types of clothes and things. I haven't been there yet, though.
