Due to the pandemic, we have shifted our efforts to the opening of our new thrift store, CityKids Thrift! Open on Wednesdays from 10-2 at Lilypad, basement level. The store will not accept consigned items and is a fully stocked thrift shop with all you need for baby and kids. We appreciate your patience as we work to confirm a venue and dates for our regular CityKids Consignment Sale.

Volunteer and Shop Early: 
A community event like this relies on volunteers to make it happen. Anyone can volunteer: moms, dads, grandparents, moms-to-be, friends, neighbors. Volunteers shop before the public sale opens, so volunteers can avoid the lines, plus we provide food and snacks!

We need help with:

  • set up on Friday afternoon/evening (no babies allowed at volunteer shifts)
  • inspecting and stocking items before the sale (Friday afternoon/evening)
  • posting signs outside on Saturday morning before the sale opens
  • helping or checking out customers during the sale (Saturday and Sunday)
  • security during the sale Saturday and Sunday
  • breaking down and sorting donations when the sale is over on Sunday afternoon.

Morning, afternoon and evening shifts will be available. Shifts are three hours long. One shift gets you into the Volunteer pre-sale on the Saturday before sale opens. More details at Volunteer 101. Sign up today: sign in to volunteer with your consignor #, or if you are a new CityKids Volunteer, sign up here.

CityKids Consignment Sale is pleased to partner with Mitzvah Circle, Nationalities Service Center, Circle of Hope, as well as smaller local charities for local families. All unsold items that have not been picked up by 5:00 pm Sunday of the sale will be donated to LilypadMitzvah Circle, Circle of Hope and more. We are always looking for more charities; if you work for a charity and can pick up on Sunday afternoon, please be in touch.
