What are you doing reading this newsletter?? Get up and get to the consignment sales!

There are 3 children's consignment sales in full swing today:

  • Belles and Beaus: It's half price day! This sale is in Lexington and today is the last day. I went last night and there was a ton of baby equiment and toys left in addition to clothes. If you need maternity stuff, get in the car and head over.
  • Moms of Twins Sale: You don't have to be a mom of twins to attend the sale!
  • Tot Trade: The big daddy of consignment sales starts today at the Jamil Temple and runs through next week.
For more information, check out the details in our Columbia consignment sales thread at the forum!

Wrap Up

Apologies for missing the February letter- it never made it out of the gate! There is lots of work going on behind the scenes to make C4K even easier to use and contain more information for parents in Columbia, so check back with us often.

Me and the kids are headed off to Carowinds today! It's the first day of the season and we've decided to go before everyone gets out for spring break next week. Since we've never been, keep an eye out for a trip report on the forum for details on where to park, when to go, and stuff to see while you are there.

See ya next month! - Scottie.
