Today Only-Moms Of Multiples Consignment Sale

The Moms of Multiples Consignment Sale is today from 8-2 at the Church of the Ascension in Virginia Beach. All marked items will be half price from 12-2 so it is not too late to head over. This is definitely a sale you do not want to miss.

People were in line early this morning to get a ticket to enter the sale. I arrived at 7 and there was already a long line.

Once I entered the sale I quickly understood why people were willing to wait.

IMG_1367

Inside I found a gigantic room filled with clothes, toys, shoes, baby gear, cribs, bedding, books, etc. All well organized and reasonably priced!

IMG_1369     IMG_1378   IMG_1384

I had 4 major goals that I wanted to accomplish with a budget around $50.

#1Find Christmas outfits and winter pajamas for both kiddos.

#2 Newborn clothes for baby #3 due in December ( I gave many of mine away a couple years ago.)

#3 small puzzles or toys for Christmas.

#4 shoes( I refuse to pay full price for something kiddos grow out of so quickly.)

IMG_1393

All 4 goals were accomplished. I purchased Christmas outfits for both kiddos, 4 pairs of pajamas, 5 newborn outfits, 2 pairs of brand new shoes,  4 small toys/puzzles, and a couple of extra items where the deal was just too good to pass up!! I did go over budget by $8 but all things considered I feel like I hit the jack pot this morning.

If you want to snag some great deals too head on over to the Church of the Ascencion for the Moms of Multiple Sale. They are open until 2pm today.

Locals: Mothers of Multiples Consignment Sale 2013

Looking for a chance to grab some “new” clothes and items for your little ones?

I have attended this sale for the last three years and we have always found a FANTASTIC selection of great quality items for  my niece and nephew.

Mark your calendars on September 28 for the fall Mothers of Multiples Consignment Sale!

From 8 a.m. to 12:15 p.m.  they will have all the high quality slightly used fall/winter clothes, baby gear, children’s books and movies, maternity, indoor/outdoor toys and games marked down to great prices.

From 12:30 p.m. to 2 p.m. many remaining items will be marked down to half price!

They will begin handing out numbers at 6:45 a.m. to hold your place in line.

They will accept VISA and Mastercard with a small fee so I would recommend you bring cash.
