The kids have already gone back to school, but it’s not too late to cash in on the deals at the SuperKids Resale Event that starts Thursday, September 22nd at 9:00am at Plaza 205 in Portland. Those who have participated in a SuperKids Resale Event know what great deals they can find on kids clothes and gear. Those who have consigned also know how much they can make by reselling their quality used children’s clothing and gear. If you are asking, ‘What is SuperKids?’ you had better read this article and make plans to get over to Plaza 205 to save some money on everything kids.
After realizing how quickly her kids were growing out of clothes they barely used and becoming tired of toys that were still in like-new condition, Susan Van Dyke figured that there must be other moms out there who had the same concerns. So in April of 2007, out of a desire help her fellow moms, Susan started her consignment business, SuperKids Resale.
SuperKids Resale began with just around 50 consigners at their first event, but has grown to around 400 consigners at current events.
Kelly Becker plans well in advance for her participation in the event as a volunteer. “It’s a magnet! As soon as I know the date of the next sale, I put it on my calendar and start planning coverage for my kids.” Becker has been with the event for several years now. She freely admits that she is very picky when it comes to buying things for her children, but she has no problem finding quality items and she loves the convenience of locating almost everything she needs in one location.
Everyone really wins when they participate in a SuperKids Resale Event. Families who consign their kids clothing and equipment can earn some extra money to save or spend at the Event. On the average Susan reports that she typically writes checks to consigners for $200.00 – $400.00. She has even written a few checks for up to $2000.00. Shoppers also boast savings of 30 – 90% off of retail prices on practically new items. In addition, event volunteers receive benefits such as increase percentages of sales and shopping prior to opening to the public.
