Be Green Consigment Sale in Brooklyn Spring 2010

Has anyone been to or sold items at the Be Green Consignment Sale in the past? I’m tempted to sign up as a consignor but the pre-organization I would have to do sounds daunting.

The Be Green Kids Consignment Event is happening in just a couple of weeks- and whether you want to consign or buy clothes, the date is fast approaching.  You can buy clothes, shoes, winter gear, Halloween costumes, toys, baby equipment/gear, strollers, and “boutique brand” clothing.

If you are a consignor or volunteer you get first dibs at the Friday morning and afternoon presales.  If you are a new parent (child 1 year and younger) or first time due you have access to the special Friday night presale- so now is  the time to book your entrance. The general public doesn’t get to shop until Saturday. It seems it would payoff to get involved and start your buying on Friday.

Details: The sale is scheduled for October 22-24th (with drop-off/set-up on the 21st) at the Textile Arts Center in Park Slope.
October 21-24, 2010
Textile Arts Center
505 Carroll Street
(Park Slope) Brooklyn, NY 11215

Train: R/M to Union St. or F/G to Carroll St.
Closest Bus Service: B63, B67, B37.

  1. I attended in the spring when still pregnant with my first and scored some great swag. My experience was great;they are super organized and on top of everything, had plenty of extra helping hands & when I purchased a swing with the battery cover missing, they found it and mailed it to me a week later. I definately plan on attending again for some items. I was considering being a consignor but being a single mom working full time, it’s just easier to post on CL or Yahoo.groups. LOL! I would definately say check it out, even if you don’t consign.

  2. I agree with Carolyn. The organizational aspect of getting everything ready to go was a little bit tedious, because they are so particular, but the payoff was incredible. Not only did I get to shop early as a consignor, but when I dropped off my stuff I got to pre-preview the items that were there already. Since my then 1 1/2 year old son wasn’t with me to drop everything off, this gave me plenty of time to leisurely look around. Then, when I went back for my pre-sale consignors-only shopping time, I brought my son and knew exactly which items to try on him, making shopping with a toddler more efficient. We got some really great deals on clothes and toys (2 almost-new educational toys for $5 total!) and I got a nice check in the mail a month later! Am definitely doing it again this fall.

  3. I signed on as a consignor in the spring and had a pretty good experience. It was quite a bit of work to get ready for it, but the pay off was I could do it on my own time (during naps & nightime) — and could just hand it over. The only downside was the space in the spring didn’t have much walk by traffic so the new space for fall seems great. Overall, I would say it’s way easier than hosting a stoop sale — and the check in the mail a few weeks later was awesome!
