Tot Trade Consignment Sale

If you have kids, you know how they go through clothes. The Tot Trade Children's Consignment sale solves 2 problems for you- buying clothes for this season and getting rid of clothes from last year. Be a consigner and a shopper and come out even!

If you want to be a consigner, the last day to get a consigner number will be Sept. 8. If you just want to shop, the sale is being held at the Jamil Temple from Sept. 13 - Sept. 17. See the Tot Trade Website for more details.
Featured Activity

Apple Picking in the Upstate

Fall means (slightly) cooler weather, football, and apples! Take a short trip to one of several apple farms in the area to pick your own apples, take a hayride, pet farm animals, and make memories. Your children will never forget it. Don't forget your camera! Fall colors make a great background for photographs.

We recommend Niven's Apple Farm near Spartanburg. They have everything mentioned above plus a corn maze! Check out our U-pick Farms page for more information.
