Spring has officially arrived, and that means my favorite time of year is just a few short weeks away. Consignment season begins on April 6 with the Just Between Friends – Lower Bucks public sale at The Sportsplex in Feasterville.
While shopping JBF Lower Bucks is a great opportunity for some retail therapy, it’s important to have a plan. Going into a consignment sale without a list is a sure fire way to miss some of the greatest deals!
As a mom of three children, consignment sales are the way to go! Kids grow fast, and the clothes we buy them at the start of the season are often too small by then end of the season. I’m much happier paying just a fraction of retail prices and getting everything I need during one sale. Plus, it’s a huge time savings. I get to shop one day for the whole season. For a family that often feels over-scheduled, saving time is just as important as saving money.
This spring, I have a few special items on my shopping list beyond the spring/summer wardrobes.
- water shoes x3 kids
- kinetic sand and small sand toys
- pre-school & kindergarten homeschooling materials
- science kits
- beach chairs x3
- wooden vanity for my daughter (real furniture not a toy)
With consignment sales there is no guarantee what you will find, but I have seen all of these items at sales before. Since JBF Lower Bucks is so well organized, I’ll be searching out the specialty items on my list first, putting them in the holding area, and then shopping for clothes. It’s a strategy that has served me well in the past.
