How long have you been consigning with KidStuff Sale?

I have been consigning with KidStuff Sale for 4 years.

What’s your favorite thing about KidStuff Sale?

My favorite thing about KidStuff Sale is the ease and convenience, with the given systems in place, for being able to consign and get something back for your used items.  I also like that you can volunteer in various ways and receive a greater percentage back on your sold items AND shopping before anyone else, just by helping out!

What’s been your best find/steal at KidStuff Sale?

My best find/steal at KidStuff Sale has been the ability to purchase my child’s ENTIRE upcoming season’s wardrobe for about $60-75!  However, I am surprisingly expecting so I am looking forward to the great finds I will have this fall as I now re-buy all the big items needed for a newborn.

Tell us about your family!

My husband and I have been married for 7 years and we have a 5-year-old little boy and expecting a new baby in October.  Kidstuff Sale has really helped our family financially by proving us a way to purchase our fast-growing kids’ needs at affordable prices, as well as sell our items back once they have been outgrown. 

What’s your favorite thing to do as a family?

Our favorite thing to do as a family is to enjoy a fun-filled summer day at Kentucky Kingdom!

What’s your favorite thing about being a mom?

My favorite thing about being a mom is being able to teach my child one of the ever so important things in life – how to save money, earn money and help others out!  He’s on board with KidStuff Sale, too!  As he puts on clothes that are too small or decides he doesn’t want a certain toy anymore he brings them to me and says “mom, these are ready for the Kids’ Sale!”  I let him come to the sale with me on 50% off day and pick out some new toys.  He feels like he has won the lottery every time!  I think that encourages him to get rid of some of his toys knowing how happy someone else will be to play with them!

When you’re not on mom duty, what do you like to do?

When I’m not on mom duty, I enjoy scrapbooking all of our fun, family moments.

What’s something about you that someone may not know?

Well, one year while making my purchases at KidStuff Sale, a flyer was placed into my bag with information about Suzette Decker also being a realtor!  I was happy to have that info right at that time because my husband and I were just starting to talk about selling our starter home and advancing to our next level house.  So, when the time came we contacted Suzette and she not only sold our house (within about 5 days!) but also helped us with the important task of finding our next home that would be perfect for our family.  The entire process was smooth and stress-free!  We appreciate all Suzette does not only for KidStuff Sale, but also how she helped our family in such a personal way!

What advice do you have for moms looking to consign with and/or shop KidStuff Sale for the first time?

My advice for other moms considering to consign or shop would be JUST DO IT!   It seems scary and overwhelming at first and you think you don’t have time, but after you do it once you will see how much it is worth it and it’s actually not hard at all! Plus, it seems like every season KidStuff Sale is coming up with ways they can help make it easier for us to shop and sell with them!
