Why Shop Duck Duck Goose?

Tis the season for consignment sales! If you’ve never shopped at a consignment sale, you are in for quite an experience! Consignment stores, open year round, are different from consignment sales, which are typically held for only a few days or a weekend and are usually held bi-annually. Consignment sales are a fun way to purchase the next season’s clothing for your child at great prices. The clothing is gently used and priced by the original owner/seller, whereas at a consignment store the prices are set by the shop.

Many people are familiar with consignment stores, which are similar to shopping at a boutique or small shop only the items are second hand. Consignment sales are held seasonally and are another way to shop for your child while staying on a budget. Spring sales offer clothing for spring/summer. Fall sales offer clothing for fall/winter.

While many shoppers go to consignment sales and shops for new kid wardrobes at a good price, they are also great places to pick up those baby items that are only used for a short time period and sold gently used, such as bouncy seats, play mats, bumbo seats, swings, co-sleepers and pack and plays. High chairs, strollers, baby gates, toddler beds, books, cloth diapers, feeding supplies, and bedding for babies and toddlers are great finds at these sales and also found for good prices. Outdoor toys are another great buy, since many times these items are only used for a season or two before being outgrown.
