For some, getting a bargain is about as good as winning small on a scratch-off lottery ticket. Here’s where you can get your own little adrenaline rush by stocking up your child’s closet and playroom with new-to-you items at steep discounts.
Virginia Run Children’s Consignment Sale
Sept. 21, 8 a.m.
Heading to thrift stores in search of winter clothing can be tough at this time of year. Rather than offering up the slightly worn jackets and heavy socks you might be looking for, everyone is ridding their closets of well-worn bathing suits and shorts. At the Virginia Run Children’s Consignment Sale, the event will feature fall and winter clothing, Halloween costumes, coats, snow gear, boots and more, from sizes infant to teen. Time to stock up for winter, just don’t forget your cash. // 15355 Wetherburn Court, Centreville
