GREENWICH, Conn. – Tiny Tots Kids Consignment will host the store’s second semi-annual Diaper Drive to benefit Kids in Crisis from 7-10 p.m. Thursday, April 14 at Greenwich Catholic School.
Thousands of new and gently used items for babies, toddlers, older children and moms will be listed for 30-90 percent off retail throughout the event. Shoppers are required to bring an unopened box or bag of diapers or make a $10 donation for entry to the late-night event.
The kids’ consignment sale will restock merchandise with luxury and mainstream items before the Diaper Drive following the Volunteer & Consigner sale Tuesday, April 12 and New Mom sale Wednesday, April 13.
Mary Slaugenhoup of Philadelphia, co-founded Tiny Tots with her sister, Annie Schreck of Greenwich, six years ago. Since then, the semi-annual event has exponentially grown in size and is outgrowing its current location.
“Since we’ve been able grow our event into one of the biggest in the region we feel it’s important to use our exposure to help others in the community and our shopper’s communities," Slaugenhoup said. "We’ve always given consignors the option to donate unsold items but last year we launched our Diaper Drive and Mothers to Others was the beneficiary.”
Merchandise is restocked before the Diaper Drive to provide an extra incentive for shoppers who weren’t able to volunteer or consign but want access to the best items. Luxury brands, such as Jacadi, Baby & Co., Janie and Jack, Nordstrom, Burberry and Ralph Lauren, will be mixed in with mainstream brands.
All sales are final; bags are provided at the event and strollers are prohibited. In addition, shoppers can pay with cash, Visa and Mastercard.
On Saturday, April 16 at 2 p.m., the Tiny Tots Kids Consignment spring sale will conclude and leftover merchandise that was registered to be donated also will be available for Kids in Crisis.
Kids in Crisis, based in Cos Cob, is Connecticut’s only free, round-the-clock agency providing temporary emergency shelter for children. Since its founding in 1978, Kids in Crisis has helped more than 132,000 Connecticut families.
