Raleigh Winter Kids Sale Tips
Once the weather turns cold, the Raleigh kids consignment season ends, but that doesn’t mean you can’t do some easy things to prepare for the upcoming spring sales!
As you’re cleaning out the summer clothing from dressers and closets, take a few extra minutes and prepare for selling! I like to match up outfits and either fold together neatly, or even lay the outfits flat in a large box or container. When I’m ready to tag for the Spring sale, everything is already clean, wrinkle-free, and ready to hang.
2. Take inventory
I’m not always this organized, but I try. As I pack up the summer clothes, I sort into two categories – the items that will still fit next summer (usually that pile is pretty small!) and the items that are going to be tagged and sold in the next sale (so I have enough in the clothing budget for everything I need now!) I try to make a quick count of everything I have – shorts, dresses, pants, short sleeve tops, long sleeve tops – and keep it in a handy notebook. That way, I know what I need to shop for in the spring sales, without having to get everything out again.
3. Pick up hangers!
Winter is a fantastic time to ask your local dry cleaners for metal hangers that you can use in the spring for the next Raleigh kids consignment sale. During sale season, they get more requests than they have hangers – but during the winter, the hangers tend to pile up – and dry cleaning tends to peak in the holiday season. As you’re shopping and out and about, stop in to each dry cleaner you pass and ask if they could give you any of their leftover hangers. You’ll be glad you did.
4. Grab tagging supplies
Check out winter ads – especially Black Friday and early January – for good deals on all the tagging essentials: quality pens, packing tape, ziploc bags, safety pins, etc. Anything you can pick up at half off is well worth setting aside in your “tagging supply box” for the spring kids sale season.
Enjoy the cold weather with your kids. We’re looking forward to seeing you soon!
