This is one of our FAVORITE weeks - the annual Moppet Togs Kids Consignment Sale is happening and you won't want to miss it! If you've never heard of it before, Moppet Togs is the area's "premier" kids consignment sale and has been around for 17 years! It's held twice a year, once in the Spring with a focus on Spring and Summer items and again in the Fall with specifically Fall and Winter items. This sale will have tons of Halloween costumes and great winter gear like snow boots and heavy coats.
The sales are HUGE! So big they're held in the Expo Idaho Center and it is PACKED with children's clothing (every brand you've ever seen before!), shoes, toys, furniture, books, games, puzzles, strollers, sports equipment, decor, high chairs, carseats, backpacks and pretty much anything else you can think of that a kid could ever need! Each sale there are around 450 individual consignors which bring in a total of 60,000 items. Yes, you read that right! Can you believe it?!
The pricing for ALL items starts at $2.50 and goes up by .50 cent increments from there. Since each consignor prices their own items there can be a pretty big range in prices. For example during the Spring/Summer sale I found a pair of Native shoes for $10 and a very similar pair in the same size and color for only $2.50! It really pays to look carefully through each item to find the best quality and the best price. It's the best scavenger hunt!
The major perk of being a consignor is that you get to shop the sale before it opens to the public. Unsurprisingly the reeeeally good stuff goes quickly so the pre-sale shopping really is worthwhile. Not only that but you get paid anywhere from 45-70%+ of all the items of yours that sell. Check out the Spring/Summer Sale post we wrote to learn all about the consignment process or read through ALL the details on the Moppet Togs website under the "Consignor Information" section.
Once you've shopped a Moppet Togs sale you'll be hooked for YEARS to come! Local mom Chelsey has shopped and worked at the sale for 12 years now. She told me "Moppet Togs has been such a blessing to my family. Allowing me to get things at a fraction of the price. It has helped grow my personal businesses too. And best of all I have an entire Moppet Togs Family that I get to have a blast with!"
