Coastal Kids Market is a semi-annual consignment event for families. Basically, it is a HUGE event, every 6 months, where you can earn money on your children’s gently used (but GOOD condition) items, and where you can purchase GOOD condition, new-to-you items for your entire family. Coastal Kids Market is ONLY open for a few days every 6 months, so you do not want to miss it, or you will have to wait a while until the next one!
I had the chance to talk to Allison Gard, the lady who is in charge of Coastal Kids Market this week, as she prepares for the upcoming sale.
How long have you been doing Coastal Kids Market?
“I started consigning with Coastal Kids Market in spring 2010 and my first sale as owner was in the spring of 2012.”
What drives you to put on these events?
“I consider myself a veteran consignor, having consigned at over 25 different sales since my children were born. I love dressing my kids in cute outfits. By buying their outfits at consignment sales, it allows me to dress them at a fraction of the cost of retail. I’ve also bought lots of gifts, toys, books, and shoes as well. My goal with Coastal Kids Market is to share this passion I have for consigning with other families in the community to help them save money too. I love seeing the excitement on shoppers faces when they find that special deal they were looking for as well as the smile on consignor’s faces when I hand them their check.
How many sales does Coastal Kids Market have a year?
“Coastal Kids Market is a seasonal consignment sale, meaning we have 2 sales a year, one in the spring that focuses on spring/summer items and one if the fall that focuses on fall/winter items. You’ll find toys, books, and baby related items at both.”
Coastal Kids Market holds a charity hour with proceeds benefiting The Dream Campaign! The Dream Campaign’s mission is: “Creating opportunities for at-risk youth and their families to discover their gifting, develop as leaders and dream for their future.” The charity hour is on 8/27 from 5:00 pm – 6:00 pm. By bringing in a $10 cash entry fee, you will get to enter the sale at 5pm on Thursday, August 27th.
What others are saying about Coastal Kids Market:
“I have been consigning with Coastal Kids since 2009, for a total of 13 shows. I started consigning my children’s gently used clothing and toys to earn extra money for the holidays. It never ceases to amaze me how much money I can make by just cleaning out the closets! There is always a wonderful, high quality selection of items at very reasonable prices. Volunteers are always friendly and helpful, too! If you are looking for a place to consign your children’s gently used clothing and toys or are looking for new ones to buy, this is the place to go!”
“I’m from Beaufort, and I have been consigning & volunteering with Coastal Market since 2010. It is by far the BEST Children’s Consignment Sale in the Lowcountry and surrounding areas. The selection of items, the quality of clothing, the prices, and the wonderful friends I have made by volunteering at this event made keeps me coming back year after year. The Coastal Kids Market is definitely worth the drive!”

“I like the variety, price point, & quality of items for sale. I always manage to find the majority of items on my list for a value that I can’t find anywhere else.”
