Cheap Kids’ Stuff Mother Load Sale: April 20-21
The Mother Load Sale on April 20-21, 2013, promises bargains in quality children’s clothes, toys, nursery items, and maternity wear.
When we were kids, we wore plenty of hand-me-downs from older siblings, cousins, or neighbors. With today’s smaller families, kids may not have an older sibling to filch clothes from.
That’s the niche The Mother Load Sale aims to fill. In this large consignment sale you can shop a selection of gently-used items, such as maternity and children’s clothes, toys, books, furniture, strollers, car seats, and high chairs. This is an all four seasons sale, for spring/summer and fall/winter items. They also have a Purse Palace section for purses and bags and a ‘Man Cave’ for dads, with tools as well as gear for sports, camping, fishing, and outdoor recreation.
The Mother Load Sale this season is on Saturday and Sunday April 20 and 21, 2013.
NOTE: I am not giving a link to the sale’s home page at this time, as I’m getting a message at that page asking if I want an application to run. I’ve no idea if this is a genuine message or a virus, and it goes away if I click cancel, but whatever it is I don’t want it to run and I don’t want to risk sending my readers there! So for now, treat this is a heads-up to save the date, and if The Mother Load website stops giving that message I’ll add the link in.

This is not a flea market, where you deal with individuals selling their stuff. Instead, individuals consign their goods. This sale offers clean baby and children’s clothing in excellent condition, along with clean toys, children’s books, VHS/DVD, CDs, puzzles, baby and children’s furniture, car seats, strollers, etc., and maternity clothing.
The Mother Load Sale is at Cleveland Middle School, 6910 Natalie Ave NE.
