Pass It On Sale summer 2011

Pass It On SaleThe big Pass It On Sale for kids stuff starts today with the private pre-sale, and then throws open the doors to the general public Wednesday.

What is Pass It On? It's basically a giant exchange for parents to pass on "gently" used kids items to other parents looking for a bargain. And it's enormous. The sale takes up the 20,000 square foot field house at Albany Academy. (There's a sale each August and March.)

We checked out the sale a few years back. It looked like there were some great bargains. And be ready to shop like you mean it -- the sale can get a little intense.

The sale opens today for consignors, volunteers, and new parents (you had to register ahead of time). The sale open to the general public Wednesday (9 am - 8 pm) and Thursday (9 am - 5 pm). Friday (9 am - 5 pm) and Saturday (8 am - noon) are half price days. It's free to enter.

Ooo, interesting! I forwarded this to two of my expecting friends.

If you have kids ranging in age from infant to about 8 yrs. - you MUST check out this sale. I have been consigning and shopping with Pass It On for more than five years, and I have picked up so many things for my kids at very cheap prices - clothes, toys, sports equipment, videos, etc.

I used to skeeve about the idea of "pre-owned" stuff, but as we all know kids outgrow things before they wear them out, and Pass It On is a great place to pick up gently used things. The sale organizers won't even accept for sale clothes that are stained or toys that are broken/missing parts, so there isn't any crap here. Just good stuff at good prices.

Thanks for promoting this sale...I'm a consignor and a shopper and I can attest to the amazing bargains that await you.
