MESA, AZ (3TV/CBS 5) -- Any parent knows how quickly kids grow out of their clothes. That’s why the Kid’s Closet Connection is the perfect place for families to shop for gently used items at great prices.
It’s also a way for families to sell their stuff without having to hold their own garage sale. The big Fall sale happens this weekend in Mesa. The Kid’s Closet Connection Sale happens only twice a year, helping families stretch their budget.
“We provide the facilities and staff to run the sale while consignors make 65 percent of the profit from the items they sell, without working the sale,” according to event organizer, Ken Leathers. “Kid's Closet Connection is also about recycling. Most participating parents sell their outgrown stuff and then use the funds to trade-up to the next size.”
Last season, the event featured more than 300 families with close to 70,000 items! You’ll find anything and everything kid-related, including gently-used children and teen clothing, strollers, car seats, baby equipment, kid's furniture, toys, outdoor play equipment, books, DVDs; computer software and educational items for children.
Shoppers will find great deals on brands like Gap, Gymboree, Ralph Lauren, Hanna Andersson, Baby LuLu, Baby Nay, Mimi Maternity and more!
The sale is organized with a state-of-the-art tagging and scanning system to make check-out easy. After the sale the sale many unsold items are donated to the sponsoring charity - New Life Pregnancy Center. These items end up directly in the hands of those most in need of children clothing, baby equipment and nursery items.
Admission is free. The sale takes place at the Fiesta Plaza shopping center at 1420 W Southern Ave on Friday, Nov. 16, from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. and Saturday, Nov. 17, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., where everything is half price.
