Turn unwanted kids’ toys and clothes into cash

Kids' consignment sales
Turn unwanted kids’ toys and outgrown clothes into cash at not one, but three Lehigh Valley consignment sales.

The first week of April is going to be like Christmas came early for kids’ consignment sale shoppers. Not one, but three sales will be running. And if you’re toying with the idea of turning your outgrown baby clothes/unwanted toys or maternity clothes into cash at a consignment sale, you’d better act fast. Registration deadlines are fast approaching.

Each event has its own process and instructions. In general, consignors make about 60 percent of what their items sell for (though check each sale’s page for the specifics). That number can go up if you choose to volunteer or get involved in some way with the event. Each sale has its own tagging/pricing process, so be sure to read each one to see which works best for you.

Here are the dates to remember for consignors, as well as sale dates for shoppers.
