|Red Dress Coat from Consignment Sale|
So, as our recession digs deeper and taxes grow higher I rarely buy brand new items anymore.
I "accidentally" missed my turn three years ago and while turning around I saw a sign advertising the TCA Consignment Sale.
It has helped make being frugal so much easier!
Twice a year I can shop for name brand clothes, shoes, books, toys, furniture, etc, all in one location! (For those needing baby items, like strollers, cribs, etc, this is the place for you as well.)
In fact for the previous two years I have actually had all my Christmas shopping for the five kids completed after the Pre-Sale for Consignors. It has made Christmas time with our busy retail store so much easier!!! I didn't have that luck this year, but we did manage to find some more Scooby Doo items for Katie's birthday theme and Dora the Explorer/Diego for Anna's September birthday. (Now we just have to make the cakes-and remember to wrap items earlier than five minutes prior to the time I want them to open them!)
