Just when I think I’m finally caught up, one of them rips holes in their pants or their toes start poking through their shoes. Or, the seasons change and we need a whole new wardrobe for that reason.
You’ll usually find at least one sale every month of the year, with a concentration of sales in the spring and fall.
We’ve put together a list of where you can find mom to mom sales in West Michigan, as well as several other money-saving resources. Secondhand shoppers rejoice!

Upcoming Consignment and Mom to Mom Sales in Greater Grand Rapids
5 Tips For Shopping Consignment Sales
- Bring a friend! It’s much more fun to browse through the racks with a buddy and get an honest opinion on items.
- If you have kids in tow, pack (lots of) snacks and give them a little bit of money to spend.
- Be ready with cash or check. Payment options vary from sale to sale. Also, some sales have an admission fee.
- Before you check out, find a quiet corner to re-evaluate your items. Take that extra few minutes to look over your items carefully and see that you have what you want and need. Most sales have set up quality standards for their sellers, but it’s always good to check for stains, missing buttons or broken zippers.
- Take along a large bag or two. You want to be able to hang on to large and small items as you go; I like to take my giant IKEA bags.
West MI Kids Consignment Stores
Can’t find what you need at a mom to mom sale in West Michigan? It may be time to visit a local kids consignment store.
How Kids Consignment Stores Work
Consignment stores rely on community contributions to fill their sales floor.
Bring in your very gently used items for consideration, and if they seem like a good fit, the store will include your items in their inventory. When your item sells, you get a portion of the sales.
Shopping at Consignment Stores
Consignment stores are NOT thrift stores. They sell high quality, gently used items. It’s where you can get a nice pair of slightly used Bogs boots or Mini Boden.
Items are priced at half to 2/3rds of retail.
Selling Your Items at Consignment Stores
Selling to consignment stores is tricky. Shoppers are not interested in Kohl’s brands or items that have holes or stains or even wear.
Review the store’s consignment policies before bringing in items for consideration. And only bring in your very best! (Ask yourself, would you like to buy this from a consignment store?)
If your kid wore that Matilda Jane dress EVERY. DAY., it’s probably not an item for a consigment store. However, if they only wore those Merrell sandals like twice last summer, bring them in!
Common commission is 40% of the sale price. (The consignment store makes the other 60%.) You can often either use it for store credit or get a check for your sales.
