LAWRENCEVILLE, Ga. - We shouldn’t even have to say this, but we will: Back to school shopping is expensive. But thanks to consignment events like the twice-yearly Kidsignments, it doesn’t have to be.
The Kidsignments Fall Sale opens Tuesday, August 15, and continues through Saturday, August 19. The event takes place at the Gwinnett County Fairgrounds, filling up two large buildings with tens of thousands of gently used items for infants, toddlers, children, and teens. The buildings are organized into sections including clothing, toys, books, baby equipment, maternity clothes and more, and the Fall sale particularly stocks items parents will need for back-to-school shopping. As the week goes on, discounts get deeper – with select items marked 25% off on Thursday and Friday, and 50% off on Saturday.
Good Day Atlanta’s Paul Milliken decided to turn this year’s Kidsignments in a fashion show and recruited some young models to show off the kind of back-to-school looks parents can find by raiding consignment racks.
