Fall Consignment Sales for Philly Families

Preparing a kid's closet for the cool breezes of autumn can hit a Philly family right in the wallet. But, it doesn't have to. Purchasing children's clothes by shopping local consignment sales is one way to save some cash. Throughout Philadelphia and the Delaware Valley, consignment sales offer families a place to buy gently used clothing, toys, baby items, and other childhood staples for a fraction of the retail price. Additionally, when your kids grow out of their clothes or toys, consignment sales provide an opportunity to sell these items for extra money.

Consignment sale organizers can submit their events to our calendar by clicking here. For a list of spring consignment sales, check here.

Consignment Shops for Kids & Teens in Bucks County

With the change in season, parents are discovering that their kids' closets are overflowing with shirts that are too tight, dresses that are too short, and shoes that don't fit those little piggies anymore. Fortunately, Bucks County boasts a variety of stores where parents can turn those outgrown clothes into cash through consignment.

And if you're looking to refill the closet with new-to-you wears, the resale stores on our list also offer great bargain shopping. Most only accept high-quality, gently-used items so parents can outfit their little ones at a fraction of what you usually spend at the mall.
