We are coming up on the big spring consignment season, and most are in March (although the first one is February 19th).  I have bought so many things for K at consignment sales.  Kids grow out of their clothes so quickly, and you can find things that have been barely worn.  Most sales have everything you could need for the first few years of life, from pack-n-plays to swings to clothes and shoes- it is a great place to find quality items at great prices.


Some tips….if you can, leave the kids at home- these sales can be VERY busy, and it is much easier to shop alone.  Bring your own shopping bags (Ikea bags are great) or a laundry basket for your purchases.  Make a list of the things that you need- this is a great time of year to find Easter outfits, spring coats, rain boots, and summer toys.  Arrive early- if you are looking for a particular item, chances are many other people are too!  If you want to gain early entry into sales before the general public, you may want to be a volunteer or consigner.  Finally, bring cash- most sales don’t accept checks or credit cards.


Here are some of the upcoming  sales in the DC metro area.  Please comment and let me know if I have missed any.  I will update this list as I learn more…
