“Grandma and Grandpa Sugar LOVE shopping for our Granddaughters! Now we have three to shop for! While I go through the racks of beautiful clothes, Grandpa shops the shoes, toys and furniture. We make quite a team! The best part is the great quality, selection and excellent organization we have experienced at every sale. We always eagerly await the next one!” – Peggy Sugar, Grandma to three adorable girls and consignment sale fan.

Mrs. Peggy’s comment is just one example of the great partnership that grandparents can build with their local consignment sale. The Sugars’ granddaughters live in New York while they’re in Alabama. Long distance shopping can be a challenging adventure, but this family makes it work very well. Exchanges of shopping lists, cell photo phones and lots of texting and phone calls can happen when a sale is in one place and grandchildren in another.

It can also be a way to find affordable fashions that are unique for your grandchildren, because styles and trends vary from region to region. ...Read More!!!

Too often, the item hanging on those hangers will continue falling down, even after volunteers and shoppers try to fix them. Shoppers overlook them as they scan down the rack of clothing because it takes more effort to examine those items. They can also get lost in the rack. Here are five easy steps to keep your pants from getting all cattywampus.
