Denver's Largest Consignment Sale
My daughter and I attended the "Just Between Friends" consignment sale held in Denver, Colorado, this past weekend. They are part of one of the Just Between Friends franchises that was started by two Mothers in Tulsa, Oklahoma, which has grown to be one of the nation's largest maternity and children's consignment sale events that are held in many states all over the country. With over 90,000 gently used children's items at 50-90% below retail, the Denver event has become a twice a year shoppers dream!
Held at the large National Western Complex, located at I-70 and Brighton Boulevard in Denver, consignors bring their new and gently-used children's and maternity merchandise to sell. Shoppers can then browse and purchase these items at great savings. Anything not sold by the end of the sale is returned to the consignors or they have the option to allow Just Between Friends to donate the items to charity. It is a win-win situation for all!
We attended the sale on the third day of it's opening, yet there was still a wonderful selection of goods to be found! Shelves and racks of good quality baby and children's clothes, children's toys, furniture and equipment, tables full of children and parenting books, DVDs, toys galore and maternity clothes were available in neatly organized and clearly labeled sections.
These are just a few of the purchases we made, both at this sale and a previous one we attended earlier in the year. As a grandparent the sale enabled me to stock up on toys, books and movies for my grandchildren to use when they visit as well as baby equipment I need when I babysit at a fraction of the cost I'd pay at retail. It's really a wonderful way for Mothers to sell what their children have outgrown and buy items to supplement what they presently need. I wish Just Between Friends sales were available when I was a young mother!
Do you buy and sell at consignment sales? It's a wonderful way to save money!
