Smarty Scoop on Weekend Events

By Guest Blogger Kari A and Katie M

It’s time to get ready for the Spring 2010 Children's Boutique Resale, Winston Salem's only boutique clothing consignment sale! The sale started a few years ago when Kari Allison, a local mom, thought she might earn a little more for her boutique clothing. Apparently, she wasn't the only one having these thoughts, and thus CBR was born. We are excited to feature this Smarty Sponsor today!

If you are a mom with that awesome combination of frugalista and fashionista, this bi-annual consignment phenomenon is for you! It’s all of the thrill, less of the hunt! And it's all fabulous! At the Children's Boutique Resale (CBR) you will find many wonderful boutique and designer brands of clothing. Your children can grow like fashionable little weeds without comprising the budget! Our motto is: Wear it. Love it. Pass it on!

For more information on CBR along with dates and times, keep reading!

We pride ourselves on making the consignment sale convenient and profitable for consignors. There are no registration fees, no shifts to work (unless desired) and you can shop early at our preview sale. Our goal is to serve you better each season, so with the new year comes growth and changes! We have modified our tagging and payment proccess and we have streamlined our checkout. No long lines!We are also very proud to support local mompreneurs. We have several vendors lined up for our spring sale. You won't want to miss the unique boutique products found here.

Whether you’re a shopper or a consigner, we encourage you to visit the website for more details. Below are dates and times:

We are ready, and now able to give back to our community and have chosen a very special way to do that. We are hosting a cutest kid contest and donating 100% (yes that's right!) of the session proceeds for this contest to the FSNCC. What is the FSNCC? An awesome children's charity, located right here in the Triad!
