Kids Consignments in Montgomery: Kids Carousel

February 8th, 2010 categories: Activities, Montgomery, Prattville

One of my favorite things about having kids in Montgomery, AL, is the presence of kid’s clothing/toys/gear consignment sales like Kids Carousel. These sales are usually twice a year (spring/summer and fall/winter) and are HUGE: think hundreds of consignors and locations like Garrett Coliseum.


So what’s the deal?  Do people really buy other people’s used stuff? YES!  Do consignors really make money at these sales? YES!!

For those of you who have never been to one of these events, here’s how it works:

1) You can simply come and shop during public shopping days.

3) You can volunteer to work a few shifts during the sale and shop even earlier.  Workers must be consignors, and receive “payment” for their time by getting to shop before the consignors.  Volunteer requirements are varied, so check each sale’s website for specifics.

Kids Carousel has a spring/summer sale coming up next month at the old Sam’s Club building across from Best Buy on the Eastern Blvd. “Take-In” days are Feb.13-22, and the sale runs from Feb. 27 – March 6.  To consign, click here for the Kids Carousel website or call Stacie at (334) 286-4689.

When you get that check after the sale, you’ll be ready to start tagging for the next one!
