span xmlns=””/spanbr /span xmlns=””iI am still working on a blog post about the conversation between me and my hubby during our vacation. But because it can be a touchy issue, it’s taking a little longer than expected. Check back for that one…nbsp;/i/spanbr /span xmlns=””ibr //i/spanbr /div class=”separator” style=”clear: both; text-align: center;”/divdiv class=”separator” style=”clear: both; text-align: center;”/divdiv class=”separator” style=”clear: both; text-align: center;”a href=”http://4.bp.blogspot.com/_hRmjyAC3CBs/TEZVaq3hp2I/AAAAAAAAAOg/NfV7Dvs6z1g/s1600/consignment.JPG” imageanchor=”1″ style=”margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;”img border=”0″ src=”http://4.bp.blogspot.com/_hRmjyAC3CBs/TEZVaq3hp2I/AAAAAAAAAOg/NfV7Dvs6z1g/s320/consignment.JPG” //a/divspan xmlns=””ibr //i/spanbr /span xmlns=””Consignment season is upon us here in the South and I am in the midst of gathering all the kids clothing and preparing for a bHUGE/b consignment sale. /spanspan xmlns=””Now that I have started,/spanspan xmlns=”” I remembered why I don’t do consignment sales often. I am locating wire hangers (which I hate, but get them for free from the cleaners and neighbors), finding safety pins and getting all the clothing out from the “To Sell” bin. While pinning outfits together, every once in while I poke myself which results in a small blood spot on the outfit (don’t worry…I wash it out). GRRR…br //spanbr /span xmlns=””I know after all the hard work of gathering, pinning, tagging, etc. I will have a little pile of cash in the end, but sometimes I just want to take all the bins and donate it which would be a nice tax-write off. I used to eBay clothing all the time, but when I realized how much I actually made in an hour compared to the time I spent it was not worth it. br //spanbr /span xmlns=””Craigslist would be a good place to go, but that still requires pictures, posting, emails. br //spanbr /span xmlns=””I decided to try a href=”http://www.kidsignments.com/Kidsignments%20Flier%201.pdf”Kidsignment’s/a countywide consignment sale that accepts 1000 consigners and is located at the fairgrounds. As a seller, I get to go prior to the sale and make my own purchases (YAY!!) Consignment sales are a bGREAT/b place to find school clothes, toys, books, and furniture. Not only have I found clothing, but I have found baby gates and furniture at very low prices. Since this sale is the largest in our area, I am hoping I will do well. I may discover that it was worth the searching, tagging, and blood (literally). br //spanbr /span xmlns=””iYou can find consignment sales in your area at a href=”http://www.kidsconsignmentsales.com/”Kid’s Consignment Sales/a.br //i/spanbr /span xmlns=””/span
