Albuquerque children’s consignment sale for spring – you can’t consign the kids, but you might pick up a bargain!

Change of season, change of clothes… but kids are changing all the time. (Did ya notice?)
The Mommy’s Market  spring consignment sale on March 4 – 5 , 2011 could be just the place to find gently used kids’ clothing up to children’s size 14 and save a few bucks on dressing the offspring both for the new season and their new size. Plus the sale includes maternity wear, children’s furniture, toys, and equipment for moms, kids and babies.

  • Admission is $1 on Friday March 4 – assuming you find even one thing to buy you’ll save that dollar many times over.
  • Admission is free on the morning of Saturday March 5, when they clear any remaining items at half price.
  • A limited number of $5 presale passes are also being sold, giving customers first dibs on items on Thursday March 3 from 7 pm -  8:30pm.  Only 150 presale passes are available online via the Mommy’s Market website, or the Mommy’s Market Facebook page.  The passes won’t be available on the door.

Judging by the guidelines for sellers, Mommy’s Market has pretty high standards and sale items must be in good shape and washed prior to the event, so it shouldn’t be a game of ‘spot-the-rip’. Just a game of ‘grab the bargain’.

  • When: Friday March 4, 2011
  • Time: 9 am – 7 pm
    Half Price Sale on Saturday March 5, from 8 am – noon.
  • Where: Berean Baptist Church, 3800 Eubank Blvd NE, at Eubank/Montgomery
  • Price: $1 admission Friday / Free on Saturday 

Mommy’s Market takes place twice a year, fall and spring, and you can sign up to consign your own gear too.

Albuquerque children’s consignment sale this Saturday – you can’t consign the kids, but you might pick up a bargain!

Change of season, change of clothes… but kids are changing all the time. (Did ya notice?)
The Mommy’s Market  fall consignment sale on September 11 could be just the place to find gently used kids’ clothing up to children’s size 14 and save a few bucks on dressing the offspring both for the new season and their new size. Plus the sale includes maternity wear, children’s furniture, toys, and equipment for moms, kids and babies. Admission is $1 – assuming you find even one thing to buy you’ll save that dollar many times over.

Judging by the guidelines for sellers, Mommy’s Market has pretty high standards and sale items must be in good shape and washed prior to the event, so it shouldn’t be a game of ‘spot-the-rip’. Just a game of ‘grab the bargain’.

Better still, they clear any remaining items at half price at the end of the day. So take your pick – early birds probably get the best worms, later birds save more on what’s left.

  • When: Saturday September 11, 2010
  • Time: 8 am – 3:00 pm
    Half Price Sale from 3:30 – 5 pm
  • Where: Berean Baptist Church, 3800 Eubank Blvd NE, at Eubank/Montgomery
  • Price: $1 admission
