Tips for Shopping Kids Consignment Sales!
March 26, 2017
TOP shopping TIPS for those Kids’ Consignment Sales
Save Big with Spring Consignment Shopping
With Spring upon us, it’s time to start thinking shorts and tanks, sandals, bathing suits and beach toys! Kids grow fast (most budgets don’t!), so why pay retail! Shop at the upcoming Just Between Friends of Allentown/Bethlehem consignment sale event, and get MORE for LESS!
Think 3-4 pairs of shorts for the price of ONE at the retail stores. Water tables, sand toys, flip flips and bicycles… they have it all! Here are my top shopping tips to get the most bang for your buck!
Top 7 Tips for Getting the MOST out of your shopping
1. Bring a list! With over 50,000 items in 20,000 square feet of space, hit your top priorities first, THEN shop the other areas.
2. Write down upcoming birthdays and holidays. JBF is a great place to get gifts for a reduced price! They also offer a HUGE selection of brand-new Melissa and Doug items… all at 25% off retail price!
3.Use their Ikea shopping bags and hold area. Those bags are huge! You can fill them to the brim, them put them in the hold area until you are done shopping! Just pick them up on the way to the register!
4. Claim your free tickets ahead of time! Why pay at the door when free tickets are available online? Get your tickets here (don’t forget one for grandma, or your BFF!): https://jbfallentownsp17.eventbrite.com
5. If you don’t like crowds, consider shopping during presales! Presales are Wednesday night. If you are an expecting mom (or foster or adoptive mom), or have a child under age 12 months, teacher or served in the military, you get to shop a day before the public! Don’t fit into one of those categories? No problem! Reserve a PRIME TIME ticket! Get tickets here: https://jbfallentownsp17.eventbrite.com
6. Make a second trip during the 50% off sale! Come back on Saturday to shop, when many items will be reduced 50% off!
When: March 29-April 1 Where: the Lou Ramos Center (home of the Lehigh Valley United soccer team)- 1344 N Sherman Street, Allentown. This is right off Airport Rd! Who: You! Plus your friends and family (don’t forget to invite them!) Get tickets here: https://jbfallentownsp17.eventbrite.com
