For many people, fall is their favorite season. It’s mine too, but not just for pumpkins and football. It’s also consignment sale season.
When I did the math, I realized this will be my 13th year shopping consignment sales. I started the fall before my son was born in December, and he’s about to be a teenager!
If you are looking for a way to score great deals on kids clothes, shoes, toys and more, then shopping consignment sales is a must.
I like to consign my kids clothes and also shop, and I usually come out almost breaking even on what I spend vs. what I make in return.
Here’s a list of the upcoming 2021 Fall Consignment Sales in Birmingham. I’d suggest checking their Facebook or website prior to heading to the sale, as some do giveaways of early shopping passes, gift cards, t-shirts and more.
