Old is New is back, new location for Pass It On

At last summer's Old is New sale.

Quick updates on a few big consignment sales back for the spring:

Old is New
The Old is New consignment sale -- "for women's, men's and junior's clothing and accessories, as well as furniture and home decor" -- is back at the Albany Academy Field House March 16-18. (The half-price sale is on the 18th.)

The first Old is New sale was last summer -- and AOA checked with out with some help from Kaitlin Resler and Jess of JessJamesJake.

Pass It On
The bi-annual (and very popular) Pass It On sale for kids stuff has been going on for more than a decade -- it's back March 23-26. It also has a new location this new spring: Siena College's Marcelle Athletic Complex (it was in Halfmoon last year, and at Albany Academy many years before that). The sale is open to the general public March 24-26. (March 23 is the consignor and first-time parent shopping (already full). March 25-26 is the half-price sale.)

It's been a few years since we've checked out this sale, but it seemed to be full of what looked like good bargains.

Got Kids?
There's also the Got Kids? consignment sale is at the Frear Park Ice Rink in Troy May 2-4. Has anyone gone to this one? We're curious about how it compares to Pass It On.

Excited! I won an early bird private shopping pass from On The Edge last year. Also I am the sucker who bought this ridiculous prom dress:


Is selling your kids on a consignment basis legal? Because I "Got Kids" but would love to unload them for cheap as long as it is legally binding.

In Columbia County there is also the O! Baby consignment sale that happens twice a year. The next one is April 17-20 at the Columbia County Fairgrounds in Chatham:


Got Kids is much smaller than Pass It On, but decent quality. If you are in the area, it's worth a look.

But I am biased. I LOVE the O! Baby sale in Chatham. It's clean. It's organized. They are picky about what they will accept for consigning, so very few things with stains/holes or that are broken. That was not my experience at other sales.

The next Encore Kids sale is May 3-5 at Halfmoon sportplex
