Kid’s consignment sales are for more than just finding great deals on kid’s clothes! Here are the best things to buy at Spring consignment sales to save big!
This post is in partnership with Just Between Friends Lower Bucks. All opinions are my own.
Our local Just Between Friends Lower Bucks kid’s consignment sale is happening in a couple of weeks (April 12-14, 2019), and I’ve been busy going through my kid’s clothing and figure out what they need for this spring and summer. And I’ve also been trying to think about other items that they’ll be needing that I should look for while I’m at the sale too.
I don’t know about you, but as a mom of four, finding ways to save money on kid’s clothing and gear has been absolutely necessary in order for us to stay within our budget! There is simply no way that we could buy everything brand new. And I’ve been so grateful for consignment sales and their budget friendly prices on kid’s clothing, toys and gear.
To be honest, for years I felt absolutely overwhelmed by kid’s consignment sales and totally avoided shopping them. But then several years ago, I figured out a few simple things that totally changed my perspective and made shopping at consignment sales something that I actually have learned to kind of enjoy!
It’s always such a good feeling to be able to spend one chunk of time shopping and then come home with most of the clothing and gear that my kid’s need for the next season. All for a fraction of what I would pay otherwise!
Since I have consignment sale shopping on my mind, I thought it would be fun to share what I think are the best things to buy at Spring consignment sales. With a little planning, you’ll be able to save a lot of money on the gear and clothing that your family needs!
Best things to buy at Spring consignment sales
1. Easter Outfits
Plan ahead and save money by buying your kid’s Easter outfits at the consignment sale. I usually see lots of cute options!
2. Jackets and Raincoats
I also have found a lot of hoodies and sweatshirts too.
Look for sandals, rain boots, flip flops, cleats and more! I’ve been able to find footwear for amazing prices.
4. Swim Suits and Pool Gear
You can often find pool floats, life vests, rash guards, cover-ups, swim goggles and more!
American Girl Doll accessories, Duplos, toy musical instruments, tool sets, Nerf guns and so much more. I’m always amazed at all the options! This is also a great time to buy ahead for birthday and Christmas gifts!
6. Art and Crafts Supplies
Watch for craft kits, art supplies, model kits and more. I love keeping some art and craft kits on hand for rainy day activities.
Board books, picture books, kid’s classics, pre-teen reads, Usborne books and everything in between.

There is always a big variety of both games and puzzles, for both little and big kids. I’ve even seen brand new games and puzzles for sale!
