This is an older post about consigning at the Kids Closet Connection children’s consignment sale in Wichita. Find the newer information here!
Make some extra spending money and clean out the kids’ closets at the same time by selling your high-quality, gently used kids’ clothes, toys, and equipment at a consignment sale.
It’s a million times easier than a garage sale, and as a consignor you get to shop early at the sale.
Benefits of selling on consignment
- You sell the things you no longer need, clean out your closets to make room for the new stuff, AND you get to shop early at the sale, choosing from thousands of wonderful kids’ items like clothes, toys, baby equipment, strollers, playpens, and more.
- Your kids’ items will bless other families who need to shop wisely and provide for their kids on a budget.
- The Kids Closet Connection consignment sale is one of the biggest in town and it attracts sooo many shoppers. Your items definitely have the best chance of getting seen and purchased when you have hundreds of people looking at your stuff. (Try getting that kind of traffic to a garage sale!)
- You don’t have to organize meetups with people you don’t know, who sometimes don’t show up anyway. That’s frustrating.
- If you don’t want to give up your whole weekend, you don’t have to. Arrange your drop-off time and that’s that (besides picking up your check)!
Benefits of volunteering at the children’s consignment sale
In addition to selling your kids’ clothes, toys, and gear for cash, you can also make more money at the sale by volunteering. If you volunteer to work a shift, you get 70% of your proceeds and you get to shop the Helper Presale on Tuesday; if you do two shifts, you get 75% of your proceeds and you get to shop during the Premiere Helper Presale on Tuesday. So you’ll make extra money and you’ll have extra money to spend on the kids this year.

How to sell at the children’s consignment sale
If you’ve never earned money on your kids’ stuff before, or if you’ve only done garage sales or sold items online, you might be surprised at how simple it is to sell at a consignment sale. You’ll earn more money, do less work, and enjoy the perks of selling at a huge sale in a clean, organized, and safe environment.
Here’s the beauty part: you don’t even have to be there unless you want to volunteer at the sale for some extra perks! That means you simply choose a drop-off time, prepare the items for sale, and pick up (or donate) any unsold items and your check at the end of the weekend. That frees up your weekend.
Here are the steps to becoming a consignor for the Kids Closet Connection children’s consignment sale:
- Register as a seller and select a time to drop off your kids’ stuff.
- Add items to their website, then price and tag things at home.
- Drop off your items at the schedule time.
- Pick up your check and any unsold items after the sale.
The sale will be held at the Wichita Hoops facility near 53rd and Webb in Bel Aire, KS. Kids Closet Connection sales are super-organized and you get great service, as well as nice people to work with. In past years when I’ve stopped by, I met several Wichita on the Cheap readers who were volunteering. Volunteers get extra perks, like first dibs at the pre-sales.

About the owners
Kids Closet Connection-Wichita owners Jill and Bo Brown ran their first sale in Wichita several years ago and were so successful they almost immediately outgrew their original location in a hotel ballroom. The new location is huge and much better able to accommodate all the great kids clothes and toys that consignors bring to the sale.
