Another BIG ONE is coming up...KIDS EVERYWEAR Consignment Sale in Morrisville, NC


After a successful July kids' consignment sale, I'm itching to get at it again.  In September, I'm headed over the Kids Everywear Consignment Sale in Morrisville, North Carolina.

This sale is awesome.  Though not as big as the last one I participated in, this sale is in many ways even better.  The quality of items brought to the Kids Everywear sale is outstanding.  Every time I go, I'm sure to find American Girl, Little Tikes, Fisher Price, unique and boutique toys in EXCELLENT  condition.  I often find lots of brand new stuff there as well!

Even the clothes are better quality than the other sales I've been to.  Most of them are Gymboree, Gap, Janie and Jack, Crazy 8 or other name brand/boutique brands.  THIS is the place I love to get clothes for the girls.  Many times you can get not only the outfit, but the hairbows and shoes to go with it!  And while not yard sale prices, they are certainly very reasonable!

The ladies who run the sale are sweet, christian women who treat the volunteers extremely well.  There are lots of opportunities to shop early.  Check out their event schedule here.

The sale is held in the Morrisville Outlet mall, near the RDU airport, in a few of the empty stores.  It works out perfectly and I can't wait until September!

Here's some more information about the sale:

Local Consignment Sale Makes a Difference at Home and Beyond


Beth Pendola and Gail Walker, owners of the Kids EveryWear semi-annual consignment sale,  are tapping into an innovative business model to serve the community. Pendola is anticipating the 13-year-old sale’s potential to serve the needs of local families as well as aid the military and international orphans. 

“We didn’t envision how much blessing this labor of love would offer.  Everyone wins,” said Pendola  Shoppers at the 1,000-consignor sale are ecstatic about the quality they find at rock bottom prices.  Consignors are thrilled; they can recycle and re-outfit their kids for next to nothing.   Hundreds of local moms, dads and grandparents volunteer to staff the sale for the privilege of early shopping.  “It’s better than Christmas,” claims Lisa Weaver, who scheduled her family’s Disney trip around the volunteer preview sale last spring. 

“When our friends timidly approached us about the idea of using the sale as a vehicle to help orphans in Mexico, we were thrilled,” said Pendola. In 1998, 15-year-old Missy Schlax of Pittsboro signed on as the first “marathon volunteer” to raise money for missions work. Missy purchased select quality items at yard sales, and earned enough consigning them to fund mission trips to Rancho 3M orphanage outside Juarez, Mexico.  In 2009, Missy moved to the Ranch to become a housemother, and her younger sister Abbey took over at the sales.  In 2009, Abbey earned more than $4,000 through Kids EveryWear to support Missy’s work at the Ranch.  Last fall, the Schlax family loaded a trailer with clothing donated by Kids EveryWear and sent it to the orphanage.  This year Kids EveryWear sent a large donation of clothing and equipment when the Schlax family relocated to Juarez to open an infant house.

This year, Pendola and Walker wanted a way to bless local heroes.  “We are so grateful to our military for their faithful service and protection to our country, we decided to create a way to benefit them as well. So the military and their spouses can shop early at the Kids EveryWear sale showing their military ID. It’s our way to say thank you.”

The Fall Kids EveryWear sale opens to the public Friday, September 16th, at the Morrisville Outlet Mall at exit 284 on Interstate 40. Volunteers shop first! Consignors shop next! Pregnant moms, first-time moms, teachers, homeschoolers, and military shop early too! Visit www.kidseverywear.com for shopping times and to volunteer.

  1. That sounds amazing! I might have to talk the husband into a road trip. We're shopping early at a consignment sale tonight in Bristol (new mom), and I just signed up this morning to consign at a big one we have around here in Gray, TN, Andrew and Abby's Closet. Yay, consignment!

  3. Never been, maybe I'll check it out! I went to the consignment sale at the Fairgrounds one year and was completely overwhelmed with the crowds. The Crossroads Fellowship church in Raleigh used to hold wonderful seasonal yard sales. I would find plenty of name brand clothes in great condition for my kids. But sadly, the church stopped holding the sales this year.

  4. I love this sale! They have SUCH good deals! I'll be there for the Mom's early day, but I can't swing volunteering so you will be a little ahead of me.

  6. This has nothing to do with this post but I wanted you to know I was throwing out a baby swing which mechanical part had gone out and I remember something you had said in an earlier post about selling pieces. Just posted everything I could ship easily...even the battery cover! Might not make a ton but I was super excited to at least try! Thanks for the tips!
