What to Know Before You Go

Consignment sales are a rich source of back-to-school bargains. You’ll find everything from designer labels to basic duds, from never-worn clothing and shoes
to gently-worn. Many also offer toys, from bicycles to board games, and books. Expect to pay 50-75 percent less than retail for your treasures.
Some tips to make your shopping smoother:

  • Carry cash: Many sales do not accept credit cards or checks.
  • Go with a budget and a clothing list: Bargains will temp you to spend more than you intended or buy items you or your children don’t need. Take a list of their needs and clothing sizes.
  • BYOB: That’s Bring Your Own Bags, boxes or even a laundry basket to carry purchases home. Bags are in short supply at consignment sales.
  • Inspect your items: Some used clothing might have flaws, such as holes or stains or missing buttons; books might have missing pages. Most sales won’t take returned merchandise.
  • Leave the children with a sitter: Consignment sales are packed with merchandise and people, and navigating with children is difficult; some sales don’t allow children, or allow them only at certain times.
  • Go on half-price day: Even if you go earlier during the sale, return on the last day, often a Saturday; items are usually deeply discounted.
  • Plan in advance: Call or check the sale’s website in advance so you’re aware of restrictions.
