Buying new seasonal clothing, school clothing, toys, or baby items can get expensive. Babies and kids grow out of their stuff so quickly that consignment sales can save you lots of money – you’ll get gently used items for a fraction of the price new.
There are several upcoming consignment sales around Columbus for kids’ clothes, toys, gifts, or maternity and baby items, and much more. If you have items to sell, please check the individual sale pages for instructions on how to become a seller. It’s a great way to earn money so that you can purchase the next size of clothing for your kids!
I’ve also included a list of consignment stores around Columbus in case you can’t make it to the sales.
Are we missing one? Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you know of a sale or a store that isn’t listed. Make sure you don’t miss other great deals and events by subscribing to Columbus on the Cheap by email.
Want to SELL at a consignment sale? Click on the links below and look at the seller resources! It’s a great way to make some money from clothing, toys, and equipment that your family no longer needs! Prepping for the sales takes some time, so if you’re decluttering, start gathering stuff you may want to sell in totes and boxes now! Kids clothing, outdoor toys (bikes and such), and baby equipment sell particularly well – but I’ve had great luck selling nearly anything at these sales.
