How long have you been consigning with KidStuff Sale?
I have only been consigning items for a year, but I have been shopping at the sale for over 6 years.
What’s your favorite thing about KidStuff Sale?
I love the fact I can sell my kid’s clothes that are too small and buy a whole season’s worth of clothes for my kids in the same sale. Even when I buy items in the sale, I still end up making money. I also love how clean and organized this sale is. The staff and volunteers really do a great job at making the shopping experience easy and pleasant. And, of course, I love all the amazing deals you can find! I have found items before that were 80% off of retail!
What’s been your best find/steal at KidStuff Sale?
I found a Graco double stroller in amazing condition for only $30!

We love doing anything outdoors. We love trying new parks with walking paths so we can take our kids on “adventures” 🙂
What’s your favorite thing about being a mom?
My favorite part of being a mom is watching my children learn and grow. I love seeing them change every day. Being a mom is the most rewarding part of my life and my kids truly fill my heart with such joy!

I love running, volunteering at the Kidstuff consignment sale, and going to UofL games. Go Cards!
What’s something about you that someone may not know?
I met my husband on the beach in Florida when I was 15 years’ old, and we didn’t even know we were from the same state, much less the same area. We have been together ever since 🙂
What advice do you have for moms looking to consign with and/or shop KidStuff Sale for the first time?
For consignors, I recommend starting early. A few months before a sale I start to organize my clothes by gender and size so that when it’s time to input and tag, it makes it much easier. I also keep a bin in our basement just for toys my children outgrow. When it gets close to sale time, I have all the toys together and ready to tag.
For shoppers, I recommend consigning items so you can shop early. Plus it’s way more fun to spend money when you are making money 😉 Also, give yourself plenty of time to shop. There are so many great deals that you want to make sure you have enough time to shop them all!
