Children's Clothing, Toy & Equipment Resales: Fall Edition

Labor Day is over and the temperatures are getting cooler. You know what that means, right? Yeah, sure it means harvest festivals, hayrides, apple picking, yada, yada, yada. But it also means it's time to score some deals at the massive resale events scheduled for this month and next. And that's where Go West Young Mom is here to help!

Photo courtesy of Bugaboo Children's Consignment Sale.As you can see from the following chronological guide, at least one resale event (usually multiple) are scheduled over the following five weekends in towns including Aurora, Naperville, Elmhurst, Sycamore, Wheaton, Batavia and more. A huge thanks goes out to our regular guest contributor Edith Tarter for her help in compiling this list. 

Finally, please follow the links provided to learn more about each resale's individual policies: Some are free to enter, others charge a small admission. Some of the events ban children, strollers, wagons or laundry baskets. Most sell items for half-price later in the day. And many are still looking for volunteers to help out -- volunteers get to shop the presale.
