Kids Exchange

I would not be a very good Raleigh Mom if I did not mention the Kids Exchange that is taking place this week at the NC State Fair Grounds. The website covers everything in full detail and it can get rather complicated but the idea is that people drop off their slightly used kids items tagged with prices and then others come in and buy the items. What a fabulous idea!

Last year was my first year selling at the Kids Exchange and when I went to drop off my items I was in shock. It is hard to explain the scale of this sale. Racks and tables, very well organized by item and size were overflowing with items like I had never seen.

For some Kids Exchange is a huge source of income for them, shopping yard sales and tagging hundreds of items to bring in some extra money for their family. For others, it is the place they go to buy their kids entire wardrobe for the upcoming season at a great price. For me, it is a great opportunity to purge and clean out my girls closets to make a little extra money - the money from this sale is going to be used to buy some organization stuff for Maddie's closet :).

You forgot to mention the half off sale on Sunday or that all things that don't get either bought or retrieved by the end instead get donated to charity.
