The St. Charles Convention Center hosts one of the area's biggest--if not the biggest--annual consignment sales events in the St. Louis area March 5-7. This is the 15th year for the shopper's fair, which allows families to resell their used children's clothing, toys, gear and more. The event is organized by Just Between Friends (JBF) St. Charles.
Value-conscious parents will enjoy purchasing quality and name brand children's items at 50-90 percent off store prices. Families selling their used items can make up to 70 percent on their sold items and 80 percent on all items over $250.
“Parents have to be savvy when it comes to their children because it’s not just children’s items that have skyrocketed in price, it’s everything,” said Michelle Wiginton, coordinator of the St. Charles JBF event.
According to a national corporate survey from Just Between Friends, the nation’s leading children’s and maternity consignment event, more than 60 percent of respondents say they began shopping for bargains at consignment events and second-hand stores after the recession hit in 2008.
