RALEIGH, N.C. (WNCN) — If you have kids and you’re looking for a good deal — you might want to check out the Kids Exchange Sale at the North Carolina State fairground.
Friday, thousands of parents pre-registered to attend the heavily anticipated event. Hundreds of top-quality and gently worn clothes, shoes, baby equipment, furniture, and more were all sold at a discounted price.
The Kids Exchange Consignment Sale is the biggest consignment sale in the state. It was created to help local families save money during tough times.
Jessica Slaughter and her mom, Connie Mitchell, told CBS 17 about how the sale and prices are so much more affordable for their family — compared to other clothing options.
“The prices on stuff are just so crazy low — you can’t help but not come back. When you go to a store and get three outfits for a hundred bucks and then you could come here and get 50 outfits for a hundred bucks…you can’t beat that,” Slaughter said.
Event creator Amy Winstead said it’s an event she and her family thought about more than 20 years ago.
“This is our 49th event…we have found that Kid Exchange does its best when the economy is not good,” Winstead said. “People are paying a lot of money for eggs, a lot of money for gas, and everything is expensive. These really smart families in the triangle find a way to be really good steward of their money.”
Families started shopping Wednesday and have until Sunday evening to find some deals. However, you must pre-register before attending the event here.
