“We specialize in infant and children’s clothing size newborn to size 12, toys, baby gear, maternity clothes and more,” said Annie Schreck who co-founded the event with her sister Mary Slaugenhoup after they had both started families.
Both stay-at-home moms were looking to save money while enjoying the experience of shopping for their children and saw potential for a business.
“The event is a great opportunity for families to cash in on the things their children have outgrown and get the things their children need at bargain prices,” Schreck said. “We only have the sale twice a year so we recommend keeping a running list of what’s needed and designating a storage area for items that will be consigned at Tiny Tots.”
Consigners can now start the tagging process at home from the Tiny Tots online system. The system was updated last year with new software to streamline the commerce process.
This spring, a new Drop & Go feature will be added to save time during Consignor drop off, consignors won’t have to wait in long lines when bringing their items to the Sale location.
Another way to avoid long lines during the sale is to volunteer explains Slaugenhoup. “Shoppers can avoid long lines by signing up to volunteer and shop during the first day of Pre Sale, a whole two days before the sale is public. Right now we’re in promotion mode and will soon need volunteers to help distribute yard signs throughout the county.”
Volunteer registration will open March 1, and a list of available shifts and job descriptions is now available online. Link to Volunteer information and signup.
