Trunk Treasures, the semi-annual children’s and moms’ consignment sale in San Diego returns this November with some great merchandise for children and moms. The founder, Stacy Shea, was on the east coast visiting family a few years back and simply complimented the mother of a cute little girl on a playground who was wearing an adorable outfit. The response she got lead her on the path to being a mompreneur. Stacy recalls that the woman was so excited to tell her how she got it at a consignment sale, where she loads up twice a year on designer clothing, toys and all kinds of goodies for her kids at rock bottom prices. She went into detail about how she also sells the best of her children’s gently used items at these sales to get more money than she could if she held a yard sale. Inspired, Stacy returned home to San Diego with a dream … and it is now called Trunk Treasures.
Stacy shared, “Having fashionable kids no longer means we have to pay high fashion prices. Our sale gives savvy parents the opportunity to keep their children’s closets and toy chests packed with all the latest trends while keeping wallets fat!”
I did a bit of research and found ladies (moms can seriously spread the word via social media) who had experienced the sale and had lots to share about the value they found. “It took me about an hour to look through all the clothes in my kids’ sizes. Racks and racks of Gymboree, Janie and Jack, Gap, Roxy, Ralph Lauren and Quicksilver, among others. Most items were priced $4 and under. The pickings were so good that I even got a bit frantic when I’d see someone else heading my way because I didn’t want them to swoop in and take something I would’ve gotten,” shared happy shopper, Laural Kay.
