How did you get started?
I first became aware of consignment events roughly ten years ago when I was a stay at home mom with four kids ages five and under and a $100 back to school budget. I was stressed and a bit panicked over our family budget until a friend invited me to use one of her early admission passes for a local consignment sale event. I was instantly hooked. The model of selling to fund the next age and stage while saving significantly over retail was extremely enticing to this mama on a strict budget. Additionally, I enjoyed being a part of the community of parents helping each other and the planet via reusing and reducing material items. After a few years of shopping and consigning I learned my favorite sale would be closing. The owners of that sale encouraged me to follow my passion and thus KidSense Consignment Events was formed. I like to say that KidSense isn’t too small and we aren’t too big – we have mastered the “just right” middle!

What is something you are most proud of?
KidSense is so much more than “just a kids sale”. We have built a strong base of individuals that come together twice a year to build the community and to encourage each other. Everyone from our consignors, to our shoppers, to our donation recipients have helped to write the KidSense story thus far. Each chapter contains tails of human compassion, random acts of kindness, support, and hope. Through the strengths of many we have built relationships though endeavors that benefit many families. We are changing our corner of the world through our sales events where the contributions of many add up to something pretty great helping the community as a whole.
