It’s the season for fall children’s clothing and toy resales!
Are you ready to brave the crowds, save lots of money and stock up on fall and winter clothes (and toys) for your kids? If the answer is yes, then this guide is for you!
Please follow the links provided to learn more about each resale’s individual policies: Some are free to enter, others charge a small admission. Some of the events ban children, strollers, wagons or laundry baskets. Most sell items for half-price later in the day. And most are still looking for volunteers to help out — volunteers get to shop the presale, usually held a day before the event is open to the general public. Know of a resale we don’t have listed here? Please add it in the comments section. Happy shopping!
