Kids Consignment sale set for April 14-17

SCV Kids Consignment, one of the largest, most popular ways to find high-quality brand name items for children at a small fraction of the retail price, will host a consignor, volunteer, and VIP holder pre-sale on April 14 and continues with a public sale through April 17, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. at 25300 Rye Canyon Road in Valencia.

The sale is not only a great resource for parents looking to save money, but also lets them feel good about the money they do spend. At the close of the sale, thousands of unsold items are donated to local charities to help families in need.

The sale started seven years ago when stay-at-home mom Kristin Nelson was looking for an alternative to yard sales that would save families money without having to sacrifice quality and time. Today, more than 425 Santa Clarita families consign more than 50,000 products and earn up to 65 percent on items sold, ranging from children's clothing to toys, books, and furniture.

The concept has become so popular that LA Kids Consignment now holds sales in three cities: SCV Kids in Valencia and LA Kids sales in Burbank and Pasadena.

"What I started in my driveway seven years ago continues to be the best way for families to find high-quality but affordable children's products," said Nelson. "Yard sale shopping was too time-consuming and not very productive. Knowing everyone cares about being ‘green' these days, the recycling of over 50,000 items that would otherwise end up in landfills or cluttering up garages and closets helps out everyone and helps the planet!"

The SCV Kids Consignment sale will benefit many charities, including: Assistance League of Santa Clarita, Magic Children Foundation, Mend Poverty, The Domestic Violence Center of the Santa Clarita Valley, Help the Children, SCV Youth Project, Child & Family Center Foundation and Airmen's Attic (Edwards Air Force Base).

SCV Kids Consignment remains true to its mission that "Kids are expensive; their stuff doesn't have to be" by continuing to be an important outlet for local families in need of infant and children's clothing (newborn through tween), shoes, toys, video games, outdoor play equipment, nursery items, baby equipment and more.
