Smarty Scoop on Weekend Events

By Rachel H and Katie M

‘Tis the season for consignment sales! We have a great list below of all the Triad sales going on this weekend, but first off, we want to focus on our Smarty Sponsor, the Children’s Boutique Resale. Start gathering your clothes now to prepare to consign at this one-of-a-kind event! This is a semi-annual sale that is now preparing for the sale of fall/winter items. This year you can also buy and sell boutique maternity clothing as well as Halloween costumes. CBR has a very unique shopping experience where you will find beautiful children's gently worn designer, boutique and smocked clothing at fantastic prices! CBR’s motto is “Wear it. Love it. Pass it on!”

The Children’s Boutique Resale prides itself on making selling convenient and profitable for busy moms. There are no admission fees or registration fees. You keep 60% of your profit! They do not have a 1/2 price sale day, so the price you list is the price you will receive! You are not required to volunteer to work a shift. You will simply tag your items (or use their tagging service) and drop them off on Thursday, October 1st between 9am-4pm. As a consignor, you are invited to shop a preview sale that night from 6-8pm. The sale will be open to the public Oct. 2-3.

The sale keeps growing and is happy to announce that this year’s new location will be 1214-C Reynolda Road in Winston-Salem (formerly If It's Paper location). If you have a unique kid-friendly business that you would like to promote at the sale, you can do so with a booth this year. Limited spaces are available, so call Kari at 765-4975 to secure your spot. For all the details concerning CBR, please visit the website here, or email Kari Allison at Register now to consign! Whether you are a consignor or a shopper, you will love, love, love this sale!

Oh, no, my secret's out! I just love the Children's Boutique Resale - it's where I get the majority of my daughter's cute things every consignment season. I highly recommend it - I've only found high quality items there and the prices are good. It's also the only place I consign!

I went to the Childrens Boutique Resale last year and was extremely happy with my purchases. I love smocked clothing, but I don't like paying full-price. This is a great compromise.
