I have been to other consignment sales in the Central Florida area and Cradle to College is by far my favorite! Their venue was well lit, extremely organized, clothing displayed in an orderly fashion and you could navigate through the racks with a stroller with ease. I have not missed this sale yet and have the dates marked down for next years sale already. Not only do I shop the sale I also consign and am super excited about the money earned from this years sale. A great event NOT to be missed!” – Nikki C., 7 year shopper and consignor

What consignors are saying:
“Thank you for hosting this event and making it possible for me and other moms to make some extra income. I hope that the profits from my items will help fund some fun! I also have to admit that the opportunity to buy some items for my two boys at great deals is very appealing, so I hope to also find a few treasures while I am at the event.” – Samantha K.
“As a busy full time working mom, I rarely have time to sort through, sell or donate my son’s outgrown clothing, baby toys etc. The Cradle to College Sale came at just the right time for me…and was so simple to just type in the items to your website and print up tags. I feel good that I was able to give back to the community with my donated maternity clothes. We are all in this together and as a community we can provide each other the means to get from Cradle to College for our children and their families!” – Charlotte H.
