Local PDX: Pass It On Children's Consignment Event

Living in Portland with all our great resales has totally ruined me. I cringe every time I have to buy something new for the girls - there are so many great resales around here that I can go a few times a year and stock up on clothes, shoes, books and toys for a fraction of the cost of new. 

Today was my first visit to the Pass It On sale in Hillsboro and it is the biggest resale I've ever been to - and it's also the oldest and largest consignment event in Oregon, so it's organized and well-run. Rooms full of clothing, shoes, accessories, books, toys, baby carriers, strollers, and more were filled to the brim. I forgot what I was on the hunt for a just wandered around, trying to keep Afton from scrambling out of my arms (I forgot my ring sling!) while Ruthie was happy chilling on my back in the Boba. 





If you do go to a resale, take a list with you, because the place gets crowded and its easy to get distracted by all the things you want rather than finding the best deal for what you really need.

Honestly, I didn't really need anything because we just moved into a smaller house and the girls seem to have clothes and toys coming out the wazoo, even though we try to keep it all to a minimum. I did find a little collection of wooden farm animals and a collection of Winnie the Pooh pop up books!



Pass It On is running Friday 10 - 8 and Saturday and Sunday, 10 - 5. It's worth a drive out to Hillsboro to see what treasures you can find! Check out their website for more information and driving directions.

  1. I actually blogged about this same sale and wasn't a huge fan. Maybe it was better on Thursday or maybe I'm just picky but I thought it was a little over priced.

  2. I wondered the same thing and assumed all the great stuff went on Wednesday night at the VIP sales. I work the resale for our local twins club and that's pretty much how it goes. I can usually find something - the only drawback to this which I should add to the post is that the lines were so long that it almost did me in.
