As we move into back-to-school season, it’s time to try on those pants and test out those shoes. If you’re finding your shopping list getting longer and longer, make a stop at these children’s resales and consignment sales first. You’ll find new or gently used items being sold for a fraction of what you’d pay in retails stores.
What makes these resales an even better resource for parents is the opportunity to sell the clothes, toys and books you no longer need, too. Purge your closets before adding in the new items you’ll find at these amazing children’s resales.
