KELOWNA – A new version of the popular Kelowna Closet Cleanout is making it a little more affordable to be a parent to fast-growing kids.
The first Kids Closet Cleanout will take place Saturday Feb. 28 at the Laurel Packinghouse in Kelowna from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. It's an easy way to get rid of clothes that no longer fit your kids as well as pick up some gently used items at a discount.
Organizer Rosanne Ting-Mak Brown says a portion of the proceeds from the cash-only event will go towards The Bridge Youth and Family Services, which helps build healthy families.
“As your children grow up in front of your eyes, you realize that you go through clothing and toys faster than you can blink an eye,” she says. “Often these items are barely worn or have never been used. So Moms have been trying to recoup some costs by selling their kids clothing and toys, while saving money by buying gently used items from other Moms. The most common way has been through the internet or consignment stores, and occasionally flea markets. Now there is an event geared directly to those moms.”
There will also be door prizes and the first 100 through the door will receive a reusable shopping bag filled with samples.
