Our Stylish Kids: Conscientious Consignment

By Ceemac126 @PGCBlogging

Prince Georges County resident Chelai Johnson of Our Stylish Kids is hosting a children’s consignment sale on March 23, 2013,  8am to 1pm, admission is free.    Do you have children’s clothes, books, toys, car seats, high chairs, educational DVDs, nursery items, etc.  that you’d like to pass on to another family?  Or maybe you’re in need of these items but not wanting to pay retail prices.  This consignment sale is the right opportunity for you.  You not only get to give your gently used items and free up some space in your place but those who consign get to price their own items.  Cost for consigning with Our Stylish Kids is $8.  Sellers earn 40% of their sale product. It’s a 60/40 split between Our Stylish Kids and the seller.

Chelai with Quote

 ”Four years ago I was laid off.  During this time I went to a consignment sale in Baltimore.  I was able to get so many things for my daughter that I was able to sell the overage.”  Chelai Johnson remembers that time, “My budget was slashed but my daughter was still growing.”

The actual sale date is Saturday March 23rd, but if you are signed up to received email updates from PGC Blog, you are eligible for a TWO FREE TICKETS TO THE FRIDAY NIGHT PRESALE!!!  The Friday presale hours are 6:30pm-8pm and the sale is only open to those who consign and the lucky winners of give away tickets from PGC Blog.  Make sure you are subscribed and send me an email.  The 20th email to PGC Blog wins the tickets.

Item drop offs are Thursday, March 21st and Friday March 22nd, night time and mid-day.  See the Our Stylish Kids web site at the bottom of this post for drop off details.

This consignment sale is just an awesome event and to ice this already great cake, whatever is not purchased is donated to Shabach Emergency Empowerment Center in Lanham on Brightseat Road.  Chelai Johnson didn’t start out trying to have a business.  She simply wanted to bring this consignment concept to her community.

Get there early because when the products are gone, they are gone.  Word to the wise: from 12pm-1pm on Saturday, everything is 50% off
