    Kid Konsign NW Having Three Day Spring Sale Event June 6,7, and 8th

     

    Kid Konsign NW is having their Spring three day sale event starting Friday the first weekend in June at the Mill Plain Center, 705 Park Crest Ave., A100, Vancouver, WA 98684. This biannual event is a great way for parents who have slightly used children’s items to sell them to parents who need the items for their growing families. Profits from the sale can be designated to benefit local school districts and PTA programs.

     

    Kid Konsign NW has been in operation since 2008 and is part of a nationwide trend toward consignment sales, especially of children’s items. Anybody who has ever raised children know that Kid outgrow clothes, toys, cribs, and strollers quickly, leaving behind perfectly good items to be recycled. At the same time, many families are looking for quality used children’s items. The bi-annual event put on by Kid Konsign NW is an exciting event to bring buyers and sellers together in one big place.

     

    This year, the Spring Sale event will begin on Friday, June 6th starting at 9:00am. The sale will take place at a 3000 square foot space in the Mill Plain Center. A huge selection of children’s spring and summer clothing will be on display including shorts, sun dresses, swimming suits, light jackets, t-shirts, and shoes. There will also be big selections of children’s furniture, books, toys, bedding, and more. “We encourage new parents to attend. Even if you have never bought anything used before, you will find items here that look brand new for a fraction of their retail price,” said Cristina Berry, who is owner of Pipsqueak Resale Boutique, and is hosting the event.

     

    Consigners will receive 65 percent of the proceeds of their sale items, which they have the option of donating to their local school of PTA. Thousands of dollars are typically raised at these events and put to good use. There will be two options at this event for fundraising: 1) A group, such as a local PTA can accept donations of items from parents and sell them at the sale, and 65 percent of the proceeds will go back to the group, or 2) Parents can opt to donate 10 percent of their individual sales to a group of their choice and receive 55 percent for themselves.

     

    The three day sale event will wrap up on Sunday with a 50 percent off sale. Some people may think it is best to wait until the last day for the deep discounts, but there may not be much left by then. There will be group vendor tables at the event, and advertising options for local vendors wishing to participate.

     

     

    Cristina Berry urges people and groups who want to consign items to call her at (360) 896-7411. Kid’s Konsign NW is also seeking volunteers for the event. Volunteers will earn two passes for a presale per shift that they work, where they will get the first opportunity to purchase goods on sale.
