Spring Consignment Sales in Des Moines



Des Moines Spring Consignment salesAnyone else feel like their little ones have grown several feet over the winter? I have a drawer full of shorts for my little man from last summer and am wondering which, if any, will fit this summer.

The thought of rebuilding a spring and summer wardrobe from scratch makes my debit card cringe. Before Calvin was born I started shopping the many consignment sales that come to the Des Moines area in an effort to save money wherever I could. 

I start making a list of items I need before I start shopping (I am addicted to all of the Google Drive  apps to keep my life in order). This year I am looking for: shorts, t-shirts, sandals, swim trunks, swim diapers, outdoor toys for the yard and pool…basically anything that will help us get ready for spring and summer!

I will definitely be shopping these upcoming Des Moines area consignment sales:
