Well, it’s here and gone. Can you believe that Wee Cycle It is over? For those of you that are local, it always comes and goes really quick. The truth is, this is probably true with any of you who do consignment sales like this one. I wanted to share with you some of my steals and deals that I got this year and why shopping consignment really is best.

On the first day, I was able to rack up big. I volunteered 18 hours of my week so we could shop early and we got some great stuff! This is when we focused on our list and getting items that may not be around the rest of the week.

Here is what we got:

Hiking carrier

Moby wrap

Here is what I got:

TOTAL COST= $2.50

The last day is my favorite day. Half price day! It’s amazing to get there and have the thrill of shopping stuff for a better price than you saw them the day before. I looked Friday night before I left and made a mental list of the things I wanted if they were still there. And guess what? I got it all. Here is my list from the last day of Wee Cycle It:

 Here is what I got:

What a deal! That basically averages everything out to $3.43/each. I can’t complain! Also, I tried to add everything up at it’s “normal” price to the best of my ability and got a total of over $800 . Win!
