To Whom it May Concern: Hello. My name is Erin Hayes. My father told me about Cradle to College in January during my baby shower. I had hopes of going and picking out some things for my baby to be. Unfortunately her daddy and I couldn't make it out as
I was induced a week early due to some health issues and even had an emergency C-Section, making leaving Leesburg to travel to Clermont something we couldn't do with the new baby and healing mommy. My father made mention of this to his friend who had told
him about this, and the information was passed on to Mrs. Palenkas- who was very generous and sweet after hearing this news. Baby Trinity received a large bag of donated items from Cradle to College, mostly clothes that'll keep her until she's one, a fun Tickle
Me Elmo that I'm sure will get her smiling, and some really cute seasonal/ holiday clothes that I'm elated with for this year. Baby Trinity, her daddy Chris, and I would like to thank you all again, especially Mrs. Palenkas for your kindness and helpfulness
in getting us a good start with the new addition. We have been blessed by family, friends, and now the community, and we couldn't ask for anything more uplifting and awesome. Thank you again for all your help!!! ~Erin

I loved the sale! I was able to get so many items for my new addition for a fraction of the cost! I would have loved to have a map of where to find items as the sale was huge!

AJ 04-Mar-2012 09:11 PM4 out of 5 stars
I thought this was a wonderful sale. My only one piece of feedback it for the clothing, perhaps have the racks a bit further apart. It was hard to have one stroller more or less 2 mothers, plus others in one isle. That was my only reseration, next to the

SALLY GOTT 23-Feb-2012 10:26 PM5 out of 5 stars
I love this sale. I always find great deals and the things I am looking for. My advice, leave the kids at home and don't come in a rush because there is sooo much to look at. You need time to see everything and load your car afterwards hahah

Angie Fincannon 23-Feb-2012 10:06 PM5 out of 5 stars
I was very amazed when I walked in this was my first time coming and I will most deffenatly be back next time.
Melinda Gill 23-Feb-2012 10:06 PM5 out of 5 stars
@amber pici - We regret that you feel the sale was not organized, as we pride ourselves on our event planning in general. As for the clothes we have over 10k pieces of clothing and organized on 1k linear feet of clothing racks. With regard to the long
wait, we do humbly apologize! We had 2 cashiers out sick (and 2 vendors!), and a computer crashed for an hour! Thanks to our awesome tech support we were able to get 5 computers running (instead of 3) within an hour. We do apologize for the line that built
up... we cleared it as fast as we could. We'd love to have you come back another time. We also welcome your suggestions for improvement and ask that you email them to Thank you.
Angie Fincannon 23-Feb-2012 10:03 PM3 out of 5 stars
I rate your event 200% AWESOME!!!! I was very amazed this was my first time ever hearing and first time coming to the event but sure will be back next time.

amber pici 23-Feb-2012 09:44 PM1 out of 5 stars
it did not have nearly as many clothes as other consignment sales i have been to. things where not organized enough. And i had to stand in line for an hour and 45 mins to check out. i will not be going to this sale again.

carrie dewalden 23-Feb-2012 09:36 PM5 out of 5 stars
I love love love Craddle to College! I have been counting down the days until the sale. I love the great deals but also how the sale gives back to our community. thank you some much CTC!
Bessie Gollett 23-Feb-2012 09:31 PM5 out of 5 stars
This was the first I heard of the sale. I signed up as a consigner. When I looked at how well organized the items at the sale were and all the great bargings I just got more excited. I immediately started telling all my friends about it so they can come
shop as well as be a consigner for the September sale. Best sale ever!!

Rebecca G 23-Feb-2012 09:10 PM5 out of 5 stars
My first experience consigning. I had A LOT of items to sell; although it took awhile, the sytem was so easy to use and the website explained all the How-To's perfectly. Drop-off and set-up was a breeze! Visited today as a buyer and was impressed by how
well-run it was and how nicely everything was displayed. Will definitely be back in the future!

Kami Walker 20-Dec-2011 09:30 PM5 out of 5 stars

Cradle to College is an awesome concept. As a partner with the event, The FAITH Neighborhood Center received the food which was donated in lieu of an admission charge. All this food was passed directly to the needy in the surrounding area. Many thanks
to all who made this donation possible.
Amy Evers 23-Sep-2011 10:55 PM5 out of 5 stars
Cradle to College is a wonderful event! I am a previous consigner and wasn't able to attend that sale due to work schedule so I was SO excited about the extended hours for this sale! Melinda does a fabulous job with organization of this sale. I attended
for the first time this past sale and LOVED every minute of it! It was a crowded venue but everything was well placed and was able to be reached with ease. The lines were long but that's to be expected with a crowd this large! It was nice to be able to talk
with the venders while waiting in line. All of the volunteers were so polite and helpful. I will most definitly be attending the Spring sale!!
Carrie 23-Sep-2011 09:39 PM5 out of 5 stars
A wonderful sale with a lot of great deals! Excited for the next one.
Nikki 23-Sep-2011 08:40 PM5 out of 5 stars
I have been to other consignment sales in the Central Florida area and Cradle to College was by far my favorite!!! Their venue was well lit, extremely organized, clothing displayed in an orderly fashion and you could navigate through the racks with a stroller
with ease. I have not missed this sale yet and have the dates marked down for next years sale already. Not only do I shop the sale I also consign and am super excited about the money earned from this years sale. A great event NOT to be missed....
Nicole Booth 23-Sep-2011 05:44 PM5 out of 5 stars
I look forward to CTC every year because I know that I can find great deals on stuff for my ever growing boys!!! Next year I plan on selling some of their old clothes and toys!

Amber A 22-Sep-2011 01:30 PM5 out of 5 stars
Best sale I have been to ever! Loved helping out and seeing it all take shape! So weird how when I started that morning there was nothing but empty racks, but by the time I left that day, the floor was full!
carrie dewalden 21-Sep-2011 08:33 PM5 out of 5 stars
I LOVE CTC! I was able to get some many things for my daughter with out soending much at all. The event is very well organized and I love that they give back to the local community as well. I cannot wait for the spring sale!
Delaney Foster 21-Sep-2011 06:32 PM5 out of 5 stars
UNBELIEVABLE! This sale was absolutely insane! I consigned and volunteered and TOTALLY cannot wait to do it all again in Feb!....(and buy this time too!)
Shanna 20-Sep-2011 01:54 PM5 out of 5 stars
This sale is awesome!! Not only did I get fabulous deals, but I was also able to make great money from selling my items!! I can't wait until the next sale!
Kelly 19-Sep-2011 11:54 PM5 out of 5 stars
I was a first time vendor at this sale and right when I walked in I was AMAZED. The first night the amount of clothes, books, shoes, toys, etc took my breath away. But then to come the next day and see that almost half was gone was a complete shock! Also,
I'm not a mom, but an aunt of twin girls and a brand new boy, and I walked away with a huge box that will be shipped to Denver that I'm positive it will cost me about twice as much to ship as it was to purchase!!! Great deals, wonderful venue, completely organized,
and just a wonderful event. Words just can not explain enough...
Jen Calderone 19-Sep-2011 10:27 PM5 out of 5 stars
This sale was amazing! I was able to consign, volunteer and shop this year. I will receive a nice check for my items sold...enjoyed every minute of volunteering and getting to meet wonderful people, and was able to find clothes for my 4 kids at great prices.
I cannot wait for the sale in February. AND the owner, Melinda, is fantastic. Blessing people left and right by her generous attitude and willingness to help anyone in need. Don't miss the next one!

Kathy 19-Sep-2011 09:50 PM3 out of 5 stars
Really had so much fun w/my daughter & grandson shopping for him again (we did this the 1st time in the spring). Can't wait until next spring. First time I volunteered & had a blast doing that. Want to try another volunteer spot next time - eventually
I'll try them all :).
Elizabeth Renfroe 19-Sep-2011 07:20 PM5 out of 5 stars
Melinda puts her heart and soul into making this sale the best, blessing the community through the sale as well as the giving back programs. It's a well-run sale and I'd highly recommend it to everyone in the area.

Karen Shamey 19-Sep-2011 04:16 PM5 out of 5 stars
This was a fabulous event with tons of great kid's stuff at great prices! I was very pleased with my purchases as well as the success I had as a consignor. I can see this event growing larger each year and people coming far and wide to attend. I'm looking
forward to the spring sale.
Jessica 19-Sep-2011 03:16 PM4 out of 5 stars
This was my first experience with Cradle to College and I was very happy with the amount of stuff I bought for the price!The clothes were organized by size which was a great help when shopping with three kids! I was able to go in get what I was looking
for and check out!
Rebekah Pittman 19-Sep-2011 03:00 PM5 out of 5 stars
Very Successful sale. Definitly would recommend it to friends. Sold a lot of my kids outgrown things, and purchased many good deals on new ones. I was very pleased with the orderlyness of the sale, the clean sale floor, and the friendly staff.

Jennifer 19-Sep-2011 02:45 PM5 out of 5 stars
What an amazing experience! I was a vendor at the event and it was my first time. It was lots of fun and I met so many amazing people. I also found many deals for my 3 children! It was very organized and clean! I will definitely be attending the next one
as well. You can't miss this sale!
wendy ritchey 19-Sep-2011 02:41 PM5 out of 5 stars
This sale looks amazing!! I didnt get a chance to go this time but I WILL make it to the next one! cant wait :c)
brandy 19-Sep-2011 02:35 PM5 out of 5 stars
Spent less than a new tricycle on a tricycle 26 outfits (some brand new) and a brand new pair of shoes for my 18 month old son. Been to this sale twice and plan to return in February!!
Cynthia LaRosa 19-Sep-2011 01:22 AM5 out of 5 stars

Melinda Gill 18-Sep-2011 07:46 PM5 out of 5 stars
@mommyofkoos - Thank you for your comment. We are surprised of your mention regarding organization, as we pride ourselves on being very organized in our floor plan. As for the double rail racks; we already have them on order! If you have further ideas
pls email them to me @ Thank you! :-) We hope to see you back Spring 2012!
Nicole 18-Sep-2011 03:30 PM5 out of 5 stars
We have both made & saved at this sale. Scored a brand new swing this year! Very organized& well done.

Suzanne 18-Sep-2011 02:41 PM5 out of 5 stars
Wonderful, completely worth my time, very good results of selling. Very pleased with purchased items as well.

mommyofkoos 18-Sep-2011 11:58 AM3 out of 5 stars
Tons of items avaailable, so that was great. A bot unorganized. Need larger space and double level clothing racks.
Kfro 18-Sep-2011 10:40 AM5 out of 5 stars
This is a great sale, wasn't too crowded. There were a ton of deals, and every thing was so organized. The organization of the event made a huge difference. I was able to get deals and get out!
Michael McCarthy 18-Sep-2011 10:36 AM5 out of 5 stars
My wife and I saved so much money. We are first time parents and we saved at least $120 with our purchases and got higher quality items than we could have afforded. Beyond that, the staff was SO kind and helpful to me as I was shopping. I had to go alone
since my wife was working, but it was no challenge at all to carry/purchase items due to their help.
Carissa Imel 18-Sep-2011 10:14 AM5 out of 5 stars
This was my first time coming to Cradle to College and being a vendor also! I have never seen an event run so smoothly and professionally! Melinda does an amazing job making sure everyone is taken care of and keeps everyone motivated! To see how hard the
volunteers worked to keep the aisles clean, organized, and constantly stocked.. Amazed Me! They were always smiling, laughing, and never complaining! There were so many bargains I took advantage of my nieces and friends that I now have gifts for them for many
months to come! Many items still had the original tags on them too! Will definitely be apart of this event next year and hope many more people take advantage of this!!!
Jen 18-Sep-2011 09:15 AM5 out of 5 stars
I loved volunteering and consigning at CTC!!! Melinda has done a fabulous job putting this together. Can't wait for February's sale. I sold 60% of my stuff and got some great deals for Christmas gifts for my kids!!!

laura P 18-Sep-2011 09:14 AM5 out of 5 stars

kerry aeder 18-Sep-2011 08:27 AM5 out of 5 stars
AMAZING!! I've been to consignment sales all over orlando and this one is the biggest & best one! Tons of in-style clothes, current toys and a lot of big baby items such as strollers and jumperoos! I can not wait to give you guys more of my money and yet
still feel like I'm getting a steal!
toni 18-Sep-2011 01:51 AM5 out of 5 stars
I was out of town yesterday and couldn't get a sitter till 3:00, although I got tons of half price and am grateful, I couldnt believe how the toys were gone and I was sad, CUZ ITS THE BEST SALE EVER! Sad just that I couldnt come yesterday! Next sale, Im
gonna be first in line! oh and helpers were so awesome and helpful! thanks
Abbey Jo 18-Sep-2011 12:46 AM5 out of 5 stars
"Fabulous" doesn't even begin to describe just how amazing this sale was... The amount of inventory was was not only abundant but the quality was great. Once again Cradle to College had blown my mind!

Cradle to College is an awesome concept. The attendees with whom I spoke had only praise for the event. As a partner with the event, the FAITH Neighborhood Center received the food which was donated in lieu of an admission charge. All this food was passed

Thank you so much CTC! We at Varustaa are so thankful for your support and for collecting hygiene items that we can take to the abused and impoverished of Honduras. We look forward to continuing this partnership!!!
Britta 04-May-2011 02:22 PM5 out of 5 stars
Thank you so much for everything! This sale is amazing! This was my first sale as a consignor and I loved watching nearly all my items sell at the prices that I set. Consigning helped de-clutter my home and refill my pockets. That is a trade I will take
any day. Great quality, and awesome prices. I will be back!
geri 29-Mar-2011 12:51 PM5 out of 5 stars
this was my 1st visit as a buyer to your sale. I was alittle sceptical as I have been to sales by others and the quality of items were poor, (stained, tattered,) and very unorganized. I loved your sale, so organized, prices were nice, assortment and variety
and quality of items was great! I had a fun time looking and buying. can't wait for next one. and have passed ifo to friends.
sldecorates 29-Mar-2011 11:05 AM5 out of 5 stars
As a first time consignor, I was impressed! It did take a lot of effort to get ready, but the results were worth the work. I would like to see consignors get time in the evening to shop first. I missed most of the sale due to my work schedule.
FAITH Neighborhood Center 21-Mar-2011 11:49 AM5 out of 5 stars
Thank you so much for the groceries which were collected. All will go to help the less fortunate of our neighbors in South Lake County.

Cristina 10-Mar-2011 09:15 PM5 out of 5 stars
My first time as a consignor and though I was thinking before the sale that it was a lot of work, it was SO worth it and the entire experience was fabulous:)
Giselle Ramirez-Perez 10-Mar-2011 09:07 PM5 out of 5 stars
Excellent event, great selections, well organized!
Kim 10-Mar-2011 08:10 PM5 out of 5 stars
What a great event! Was able to make lots of extra money for the things my kids have outgrown as well as pick up new items for them. Very well organized.
KPederson323 10-Mar-2011 06:37 PM5 out of 5 stars
As a seller, you get more for yur items than from a consigment shop or garage sale!
Tess 10-Mar-2011 05:15 PM5 out of 5 stars
This was the first time I have ever consigned anywhere; now, I am hooked! Melinda and everyone I encountered was so nice and wonderful to work with. For sentimental reasons, it was hard to part with some of my kids' outgrown things. BUT the freed up space, fewer boxes to move from house to house, the forthcoming consignor's check, and all the help to the community that CTC provides is well worth it. This event definitely going on my calendar for next Fall!

This was my second sale as a consignor and I love it. I not only can sell things my boy has outgrown but can get him a new wardrobe and some toys. Looking forward to the next one in Sept.

I LOVE the Cradle to College event. Everything about it...finding great merchandise at great prices, getting a chance to consign items my family no longer needs and what I love the best is they are always willing and wanting to help the community in some way thru this event. It is lead by one of the most wonderful people I know, Melinda Gill. She does an amazing job and has a huge heart for people. Check out the next sale in September. You will Love it too!

I have consigned at all CTC sales. Each time I notice that the sale is growing. This past sale I took over 700 items and all were brand new with the exception of a few that my daughter had outgrew and was only able to wear once. I am glad that I sold a great deal almost 40% of what was there. I was also able to pick up some great things. Brand new Disney Princess dresses with the tags still attached. They were purchased at WDW for 65.00 each and I got them for 20 each. I also purchased a 13 inch Disney Princess TV and a bunch of other great items. I have to tell you that the best item that I found that I am still tickled about was at the very first sale. It was a Tinkerbell lamp for my daughter's room. I had been searching high and low for this lamp and The Disney Store no longer carried it. The prices on Ebay were over $100. When I saw the lamp sitting on the table I was SO EXCITED. It was in perfect mint condition and it was only $15. I was able to finish decorating my daughter's room. It was the final touch that was needed before our trip to China to bring home our beautiful 4 year old. She was tickled pink with her new room and all her goodies. I can't wait to consign at the fall sale. I have hundreds of brand new toys that I will bringing and that will be perfect timing to start your Christmas shopping.

I hit up 3 sonsignment sales this weekend, and this sale was by far the best! Clothes weren't outdated (boy clothes are hard to find normally) and there were lots to choose from. Tons of toys, great prices. Cant wait for the next one!
Carrie 10-Mar-2011 09:59 AM5 out of 5 stars

Incredible event! As a vendor, consignor, volunteer and shopper, I can say this is a great event. Good deals, great selection and great team of people!
Kristina 09-Mar-2011 05:07 PM4 out of 5 stars
Great sale. This was my first year going and found amazing deals. I plan to go this fall. I will go earlier though, since much of the boys clothes left on Saturday AM were very worn. The girl clothing selection (especially on the special occassion dresses) was great. On the plus side of going first thing Saturday AM was I avoided the crowds.
Jessica Street 08-Mar-2011 11:43 PM5 out of 5 stars
Wow there was SO MUCH STUFF! I found tons of toys, adorable clothes and shoes for my daughter. The prices were great too, some even still had tags on! Can't wait for the next CTC, already making a box of things to consign. YAY!

This has been the best thing to come to Clermont! CRADLE TO COLLEGE has helped us mommies earn money, kept out houses clutter free,shop for great deals for our children and allowed us to give our time to help out a great sale!So much to chose from, friendly volunteers to help! Thanks CTC for allowing us to sell our kid items and being able to buy things that we really need at afforable prices!
Megan 08-Mar-2011 09:08 PM5 out of 5 stars
Shop, Save, and Made money...whats better than that? NOTHING!!!!!!!!!!!!
Jamie Lord 08-Mar-2011 08:41 PM3 out of 5 stars
This event has helped my family so much. My son just turned one and barely had anything, now he has so many toys he doesn't know what to do! I am beyond thankful for everything that this sale has done. I've been all three times and I plan on being there every time after because this sale is not only a huge help but the biggest blessing a single mother could ask for.

Thank you,
God bless,
Jamie Lord & Jeremy

This sale provides a great opportunity to earn money on your items - definitely better than any consignment shop! I've consigned for 2 sales now & had a great experience both times!
Janet 08-Mar-2011 06:55 PM5 out of 5 stars
I found out about this sale at the last minute, and was bummed! I wish I had known about it sooner!! Such a great sale with great deals!
Erica 07-Mar-2011 02:21 PM5 out of 5 stars
This was the first CtC sale I had attended, and I was very impressed. Everything was well organized and easy to get to, which is important when shopping with three kids under 5! Thank you so much!
Kami 07-Mar-2011 11:06 AM5 out of 5 stars
They have the best deals I've ever seen! I was able to buy entire outfits from Childrens Place, Gap, Gymboree and Old Navy for $1- $4!!!

Great event and very organized! This was my first time as a consigner and I am hooked. I sold some great items and donated some to a great cause. We also shopped shopped shopped for our two-year old and new born for the next six months. I met great people too! Thanks Melinda.

This is the first time I shopped this sale. I was able to get alot of stuff for my boy very cheap

Cradle to College is truly a blessing to Lake County and its' families, in so many ways. The effort and heart that goes into this event is infinite! The lanes are spacious, the items neatly hung and uniformly priced, which takes the frustration out of "digging" through things. I think it is easier than shopping at your local department store.
I was touched by the giving hearts of Melinda and her entire volunteer staff. This event is a win-win-win for all involved. I shopped, I consigned, I volunteered; AND BEST OF husband got involved too! I can not wait to see how this event grows and continues to give back to our community. My favorite moment of the weekend was seeing one family who just stopped in to check it out during the pre-sale event. The daughter (I would say late teens-maybe 20) came w/Mother and about three other younger ladies=they walked out with everything but the "crib" for the new arriving baby. They had to call a couple friends to come help them bring everything home. As I helped them load their items, the smile on that young mom-to-be's face was PRICELESS. Relieved. It took me back over 12 years ago when I too was a young, single mother to be embraced and encouraged with the love of the people who were surrounding and supporting me as I faced motherhood.
Congratulations C2C for sharing God's LOVE with Clermont!!!!!! The thanks to you Melinda, the Glory to Him!

I participated in the sale as a consignor and also went back to shop and this sale is AMAZING!! Nothing like making money and getting great deals at the same time!
toni 06-Mar-2011 12:29 AM5 out of 5 stars
This was the most interesting thing I have ever been too. I rate this at a 10 out out of ten! I am a new Mom of a 15month and 4 month girl. I got enough clothes for the whole summer and a Halloween outfit too... I cant wait til your next sale. Everyone was so nice and so helpful. I wish this was a store I could come to every week! Thanks to the ladies who consigned there items. I found them neat, clean, ironed, Just so pretty. Cant wait to see my girl in some of these dresses! XOXO
Erin 06-Mar-2011 12:21 AM3 out of 5 stars
Awesome sale! As a consigner and a shopper, there's nothing like it! You can't earn as much or shop with such good deals as Cradle To College offers...
rebecca boschert 05-Mar-2011 11:16 PM5 out of 5 stars
WOW! As a volunteer and shopper, I was stunned by not only the amazing effort put into this event but also by the love! This event not only provides an affordable alternative to clothe our kids but also gives to to a community of people in need. Kudos to you!
Kendra T. 05-Mar-2011 11:03 PM5 out of 5 stars
Fantastic event! Second time consigning & third time shopping. Such fabulous deals and makes it so easy to clean out the clutter.
Lisa R 05-Mar-2011 10:49 PM5 out of 5 stars
I was a vendor at this event, but decided to do some shopping for my 4yo niece and 7yo nephew when I saw everything! I got AMAZING deals on clothes for the two of them (and even some hair bows for me!) The flow of the room of vendors and items was laid out very well and product selection was great. This will definitely not be my last a vendor or a shopper!
Melinda Gill 05-Mar-2011 08:55 PM5 out of 5 stars
The Spring Sale is now over. What an amazing three days! What an amazing season! Thanks to everyone....amazing. Simply amazing!

WOW! I am impressed! This is a well organized,neatly presented consignment. Pleanty of space, great deals,clean clothing, nice selection of slightly used toys, even children's furniture. I definitely plan to go back in the fall! Also, they give back to the community by charging no admission just bring a canned food or a hygiene
product to give to those in need. Fabulous idea!!!
Kelly C 04-Mar-2011 09:32 PM5 out of 5 stars
This is the first time I went to this sale and it will NOT be my last. I got plenty of clothes for my son and I can't wait till the fall sale so I can get more great deals and consign myself!
Laurie 04-Mar-2011 08:57 PM5 out of 5 stars
Terrific event with great deals and super clean merchandise. Second year to consign and the process is so easy and of course shopping is fun too. Recommend this event to anyone who has a children or is expecting for sure!
brandy 04-Mar-2011 08:54 PM5 out of 5 stars
First time attending. Came to check it out and found some cute outfits and a pair of awesome Vans (for only $3). Will definitely go in the fall and may consign the next time.
Kathy 04-Mar-2011 08:31 PM5 out of 5 stars
My daughter & I went last night. It was a first time for both of us. We came away w/a lot of good stuff & great bargains. She can't wait until the next one when her son will be older (he's only 10 weeks now) she can consign some of his clothes & earn some $ herself. We will both definitely be back next time.
April T 04-Mar-2011 08:13 PM5 out of 5 stars

Vanessa V. 04-Mar-2011 06:36 PM5 out of 5 stars
I LOVE Cradle to College. This was my first event that I was strictly a shopper and I found some wonderful deals. All of the clothes (I shopped maternity, boys 3T, and boys size 6) were in new or like new condition. There were so many great pieces to choose from that I had to edit myself! I went to a different sale the night before and was disgusted at the quality and customer service at the other sale. Nothing compares to Cradle to College!!
melanie 04-Mar-2011 06:28 PM5 out of 5 stars
Had such a great experience and was able to stock up on baby girl clothes before our little one arrives without breaking the bank! My son loves the toys I brought home to him well. Thanks for all the hard work that went into this!
Laura 04-Mar-2011 06:26 PM5 out of 5 stars
This was my first time attending CTC and it was amazing! I am due with my 2nd child in 4 weeks and was able to get his entire summer wardrobe and some of fall for $80. I can't wait for the next one when I can get his winter wardrobe.

Unreal! I just got back from Cradle to College and the deals are amazing! I found so many great deals I couldn't decide what to get. Luckily, they take credit cards! I have all of my childs wardrobe through Summer & into Fall! I also found great ger & toys & shoes, oh yeah, my truck was filled to the brim :-)No worries though, there is plenty of stuff leftover for tomorrow & Saturday. I will be back for the sale on Saturday for the 50% off sale! Thanks Cradle to College for making my first time at Motherhood so easy by having your one-stop shopping events!

Julie Flynn 29-Nov-2010 07:00 PM2 out of 5 stars
Not so good experience for me. Purchased a leapster which had tag stating in working order but alas no it was not. The game system turned on but the game did not work. After contacting Leapster I was told, the system was dead :(

Many of the clothing items esp in bigger sizes 5+ are very worn and I found many with stains. Very discouraging esp since I paid an entrance fee to this event.
Devi 15-Nov-2010 07:46 AM5 out of 5 stars
I love this event! Great prices and lots of friends!I was able to get Christmas presents good as new for a highly reduced rate, saving me lots of cash!!
