Children's Consignment Sales in Central Virginia

Consignment Sale Season Is Around The Corner!


Mark your calendars!


There are a number of local Children’s consignment sales that are held in the late Winter / Early Spring and late Summer / Early Fall. The timing works out well to help outfit the kids going back to school, get change of season clothes in the size they wear this year because last year’s size is too small. Pickup a coat or holiday wear that will only be worn once. Besides clothes, the sales include baby equipment like cribs & strollers, maternity clothes, Halloween costumes, shoes, toys, books, home school materials.


It's also a great time to clean out your attic and closets and get some extra cash for the things your children no longer need. If you intend to consign, you should start preparing now.


Here is a list of sales some of which I have attended and at times consigned at, others are ones that I am aware of and may try and check out this year.


If you know of any others, please let me know and I will include them and maybe even go to it.

Details to follow




Consignment Store Locations in the area Open Year Round that are worth a visit: They also have South of the James Midlothian / Chesterfield locations.


Once Upon a Child

8030 W Broad St Richmond 23294
and many other locations in Virginia and nationwide. Check their website.

(Fountain Square, the same shopping center as JoAnns and Big Lots across street from Books a Million)



Kid To Kid

This is at Innsbrook, Cox and Broad in the shopping center behind the CVS.

and many other locations in Virginia and nationwide. Check their website.



Children's Orchard

2280 John Rolfe Parkway in John Rolfe Commons at corner of Ridgefield Parkway Richmond 23233

804-364-5683

I've not been here yet but I have seen their advertising.



Junior League of Richmond has 2 store locations called Clothes Rack. They are community thrift stores. One is on Cary Street and the other on Forest Hill avenue. Neither is too far from Goochland or the Far West End / Innsbrook / Short Pump area to check out if you're into bargain clothing shopping. The bargains are much better than any Goodwill store I've visited in the area. Take a look at where they are located and if you are in those areas for something else, stop in and check the stores out. You'll be surprised. I've purchased many things with the tags still on.



The Clothes Closet right here in Goochland Courthouse currently overseen by the Goochland Free Clinic and Family Services, the combined effort with the Family Fellowship Services.

Please Please Please don't drive your clothing, toys or housewares donations to Richmond. Bring them here to our very own thrift shop to benefit fellow Goochlanders. Take a look in the store too. You may find something for yourself. I've picked up a few fun things there myself.

It is located behind the Goochland Family Practice on River Road West, across the street from Grace Episcopal Church.

Rather than drive your donations to a Goodwill in Richmond, drop them off here during their business house. You can get your tax deductible receipt just as you would in town and will help local families.
