Back-To-School Shopping Made Easy at Kidsignments:  :

It’s hard to believe, but summer’s already coming to a rapid close.  That means its back-to-school time – and parents looking for deals don’t have to search any further than the Kidsignments Fall Sale.


Kidsignments is a twice-yearly consignment sale focusing on children's item -- clothes, toys, games, and more.  More than 15,000 sellers take part in the event, which happens at the Gwinnett County Fairgrounds in Lawrenceville.  The fall sale is a perfect time for back-to-school shoppers looking for backpacks, books, and clothes suitable for the cooler weather of Georgia’s fall and winter months.  This year’s fall sale officially opens today (Tuesday) at 9am, and continues through Saturday, August 20th.  And get this -- as the week goes on, the discounts get better and better! 
Good Day Atlanta's Paul Milliken spent the morning exploring the crowded aisles of Kidsignments, finding the best deals for back-to-school shopping on a budget.
