Kids Exchange puts new spin on consignment

READ MORE: Kids Exchange puts new spin on consignment

WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) -- Sunday morning the National Guard Armory on Carolina Beach road in Wilmington opened its doors not for soldiers, but for sales.

Kids Exchange, a bi-annual consignment event, held a half off sale on all of their merchandise.

The concept behind Kids Exchange is simple. Sellers bring in gently used items and earn two-thirds of the sticker price with the other one-third going to charity.

Most of the merchandise is between fifty and ninety percent off of it’s original retail value.

“My kids get really excited,” said Christina Bollinger, a shopper who took advantage of the deals. “They get especially excited when you find a really good deal like on school clothes, school uniforms, Halloween costumes, and toys that you normally couldn’t afford.

Sunday August 19th was the final day of the half off sale. All of the clothing left over won’t be going to waste. At the discretion of the original owner left over clothing will be boxed up and sent to needy children in Romania and Haiti.
