Are you ready to stock up on some spring and summer clothes for your children and nab some great deals on toys and equipment, too? Well, then you're going to love this guide to the upcoming spring resale season!
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 some 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.
