Parenthesis Children's Resale Starts Tonight in Oak Park

The big children's consignment event I've been mentioning all week starts TONIGHT in Oak Park! I just came from helping put out the last items of clothing, and let me tell you, this fall is a doozy with lots of beautiful, spotless items of clothing. I was one of the quality control managers, so I can personally assure you that you will not have to scrutinize anything for stains or dig through old, faded junk to get to the good stuff at this sale. Despite that, the prices at Parenthesis' sales tend to be much lower than consignment stores. It's the best of both worlds!

Scroll past the pics for the sale details:

Here's one of the many Hanna Andersson pieces I saw at low prices (as in, $5 or less):

Here are the two racks of costumes:

Including this princess dress, which reminds me of the one that's Target's daily deal for $19.99. I didn't check the price tag on this one, but it will NOT be anywhere near $19.99!

Of course I can't guarantee that these specific items will still be there when you arrive -- there is a sale for volunteers this evening before the public sales begin, but the volunteers are limited in the number of items they can buy so don't worry -- there will be plenty of primo stuff left.

Where: The Parenthesis clothing sale is at 405 S. Euclid in Oak Park, at the United Methodist Church. Full details at the Parenthesis Web site.

Tonight: The VIP sale starts at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $20 and you can buy them online or in person.

Tomorrow: Doors are open for free entrance from 9 a.m.-11 a.m. People do tend to line up at 8 or 8:30. Half price sale is 11:30-noon. If you see something you like that costs too much, you may want to hang around after the half price sale, for the chance at an even better deal on things that haven't sold.

Also Tomorrow: Big toy sale at 124 S. Euclid, from 8 a.m. to noon.

I should be out on the sale floor during all the clothing sales, wearing my name tag that says "Carrie." Come say hi!
