Wee Trade Children’s Consignment Sale

I just got back from dropping off my priced items for the spring Wee Trade sale at the WNC Ag Center. They will still be collecting merchandise tomorrow, but already the place looks packed. Lots of great bargains and I can’t wait until the sale starts. The pre-sale takes place Friday. The public sale begins at 8 a.m. Saturday and goes until 8 p.m. Then Sunday is *half price day from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m.

*Consignors have the choice of whether they want to discount their merchandise.

If you’ve never sold at Wee Trade, consider signing up for the fall sale in August. You set your own price and keep 70%!


If you have kids, then the WNC Ag Center is a MUST STOP this weekend. That’s when the WEE TRADE Spring Event happens. Mountains of baby gear, toys, clothing, furniture, books, games — you name it. If it’s for kids, you’ll find it there, and you’ll find it at a great bargain!! Prices are remarkable and you don’t have to worry about going home with something that doesn’t work or clothing that has holes or tears. The WEE TRADE team inspects each item to ensure that only the best is put out for sale.

Presale takes place Friday, February 18. The sale opens to the public at 8 a.m. Saturday, February 19 and runs until 8 p.m. Sunday, February 20 is half price* day from 8 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.

Wee Trade Holiday Sale

Looking for great deals on Christmas toys, holiday clothing, books, games and bikes? The Wee Trade Holiday Sale takes place today through Saturday at the Boone Cabin at the WNC Agricultural Center across from the Asheville Airport. So MANY great deals!! I went to the pre-sale yesterday and snagged some great bargains. Shh! I can’t tell or my tweens might discover my secrets here on my blog.

Wee Trade owners Nina Miller and Rita London have created some fabulous sales in the past. This time, the space is a little cozier than the big building they use for the August and February sales, but it’s still overflowing with deals.

The Wee Trade Holiday Sale is open today and tomorrow, November 18 and 19, 2010, from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. Half price day is Saturday, November 20, from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Wee Trade Children’s Consignment Sale

It’s time to start thinking about fall. Yeah, I know school isn’t even out yet and there’s summer to enjoy, but now is the time to register to consign your gently used kids’ clothes, toys and accessories at the Wee Trade Children’s Consignment Sale held at the WNC Ag Center in Fletcher, across from the Asheville Airport.

Sale dates: August 6 -8, 2010.

Deadline for registering and printing price tags is 2 p.m. on August 1.

This event is near and dear to my “on the cheap” heart. A great way to get some cash for your items (you keep 70% of the prices you set) as well as to get new gear for back to school.
