We are great friends and stay-at-home moms who have become experts at stretching every dollar to make ends meet! Out of necessity, we have become very creative when it comes to saving money for our families. Like all moms, we want the best for our kids but at the lowest cost. You name it, we’ve tried it: coupons, yard sales, Ebay, Craigslist, consignment stores.
Through our various experiences we have discovered one thing…that none of the above options is very appealing. Ebay is time consuming, yard sales disappointing, consignment stores are often not very friendly and only interested in a small fraction of what we have to sell. We thought there has to be a better way!
We did some research and found consignment sales like this going on all over the United States. Always looking for a bargain, we traveled quite far to participate in two different sales and were thrilled with the great prices we received as both consignors and shoppers. Recognizing what a great opportunity this would be for Burlington County families to buy and sell children’s items, we decided to start a sale of our own. We thought, “It’s time to bring a sale to Burlington County!”
Our first goal in organizing this event is to help families turn their gently used children’s clothes, toys, and gear into cash. This sale motivates everyone to clean out their garages, basements, closets and playrooms by giving them a way to make great money with very little effort. Best Dressed for Less is an opportunity to make some money back on your original investment AND to get those unused kids items out of your house and into the hands of someone who needs them.
Another goal of organizing this event is to make additional income for our families, allowing us to continue to be stay-at-home moms and spend time with our children. In addition, we are grateful for the opportunity to help the community by donating what is leftover at the end of the sale to Twin Oaks Community Services.
We are thrilled to be South Jersey's largest and longest established seasonal kids consignment event. We have loved meeting so many great parents and look forward to meeting new consignors and shoppers each season. If you have any questions, feel free to contact us. We would love to hear from you.
