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 (Friday afternoon/evening)
  • inspecting and stocking items before the sale (Friday afternoon/evening)
  • posting signs outside on Saturday morning before the sale opens
  • helping customers 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 September 29th. 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.

We are always looking for more charities; if you work for a charity and can pick up on Sunday afternoon, please be in touch.

Who We Are:
CityKids Consignment Sale is inspired by the resale activity on the Kids South of Washington Google group (KSOW), which is managed by Lilypad, formerly known as South Philadelphia Parents Resource Center (SPPRC). This non-profit sale will help raise funds for Lilypad’s playspace, while giving families like yours a way to recycle those much needed kids items out of your overstuffed closets and into someone else’s! We are a group of moms who are volunteering our skills and talents to create this DIY sale to help support our community. The Fall 2018 CityKids is our 10th sale, and is 100% run by volunteers.
