It’s been a loooonnnngggg time since I posted about this sale, so I felt I might mention it again. Kidz Kaboodle, a children’s consignment shop on 6th Avenue in Tacoma, has a $0.25 sale the last Friday & Saturday of each month.
As the name implies, everything in the sale is $0.25! Back in the day, I made it to a couple of these sales and found that everything from children’s clothes and shoes to baby equipment was included.
Here are a few tips for shopping this sale, based on my experience and the store’s website:
- Pack your patience. There are TONS of people who attend this sale and unfortunately, some tend to be on the grabby side. Remember to take a deep breath and smile.
- The sale isn’t super organized. At least, this was the case when I shopped it a few years ago. There were a number of tables in a room that you would sort through the clothes. Don’t expect racks or even boxes with clothes sorted by size or gender. Be prepared to hunt.
- The sale runs in the space next to the store. However, during the sale you’ll find additional discounts on items in the actual store.
The last thing I recall is that having cash *really* helps your transaction to go through smoothly at the end. I believe if you don’t have cash, you end up having to go into the store to finish your transaction versus at the sale itself.
If you’ve shopped this sale recently, I would love to hear your experiences and tips. Is it just what I remember it to be? Has it gotten busier? More organized? Please leave a comment below.
