Children's Clothing, Toy & Equipment Resales: Fall 2012 Edition

It's that time of year again -- time to mark you calendars in preparation for scoring some deals at massive resale events!

Photo courtesy of Curly Q Consignment.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 most are still looking for volunteers to help out -- volunteers get to shop the presale, usually held a day before the event is open to the general public. 

Before you head out, especially if you're a resale novice, you'll want to read our guest columnist Edith Tarter's tips for making the most of these types of events.
