I was invited to attend the PreSale event for the Cape Kids’ Treasures Consignment Sale in Osterville this evening to see what the buzz was all about. The sale takes place this weekend in Osterville, behind Wimpy’s Restaurant in the old Savant building. It was started by Dawn Atsalis, a local mom of two, began in the fall of 2010 and has thrived since. I have never attended this biannual event until this year. I was very impressed and they have found a new customer with me. I would suggest getting there early this weekend as this is a must attend event and very popular.
Moms can opt to either come and shop, cosign, volunteer, or any combination of those mentioned. There are over 29,000 items for sale and the items consist of kids clothing, toys, swings, cribs, changing tables, strollers, toys of ALL kinds, DVDs, books, shoes, hats, pack and plays, baby carriers, basically almost anything you could possibly need. They do accept cash as well as credit cards. We highly recommend leaving the kids at home for this sale event as you will not want to be distracted while you see the amazing deals!
One of my major problems when shopping for my son is it can be tough in stores finding a good selection. It is usually hit or miss at most places but I have found where all the great stuff goes, the Cape Kids’ Treasures Sale. I found some amazing pieces at some pretty fantastic prices at this sale and I’ll be sharing some of those finds tomorrow on this post. I also found an amazing girls section too! I was able to purchase a whole upcoming season wardrobe for my son, a few presents for family members and a few extra items as well for a total that did not break the bank. I am thrilled to have discovered this sale finally, better late than never.
I have to give a thank you to local rep, Nicole McFarland, who is a tax associate from HR Block at the Bell Tower Mall in Centerville. She handed out little mom survival bags which included water (a must have while shopping), crayons, and a few other things that you will most likely find as a standard in my purse. You are given the option to grab a bag before you enter. I suspect there are a limited number so it would be a good idea to bring one of your own or you can opt for a tote, which they provide a few.
Some of the great things you may not know about this event is that they also give back to local non profits. They accept all sizes of diapers. They collect the diapers and bring them to A Baby Center, where the diapers can be distributed to needy moms. The consignors also have the option after the event ends to come and take back their merchandise or let it be donated to A Baby Center, Safe Harbor Shelter (for women & children) in Hyannis, Angel House in Hyannis and Cradles to Crayons as well as other local organizations.
Check out some more information to know including hours, sale times, etc. This is definitely an event to mark on the calendar and be sure to consign as well as attend because you will get more bang for your buck!
