Kid's Closet Connection is a twice yearly children's consignment sale that brings area moms together to sell their children's outgrown gently used clothing, baby furniture and equipment, toys, and books. As the new kid town, we will be smaller than our peer sales, but we plan to grow each season. Throughout the midwest and south, metro areas half our size often support twice as many sales, so we know there is room to coexist and grow. All remaining clothes with a donation tag will benefit our charitable partner, WestSide Baby of Seattle.
