Shop

We all like to save money. But with how fast our kids grow, it’s hard to keep them their cutest without breaking the bank. We shop thrift stores, scour online classifieds, snap up coupons, stakeout yard sales . . . but what if there were an easier way?

Now there is. Rather than scouring the whole valley for deals, now other families can bring their gently used, cute kids clothes and other items to YOU. In one location, you have your pick of hundreds of items, all great deals.

What’s the catch? It’s only one week, twice a year. Don’t miss it! Join our email list to be the first to know about the sale!

Sell

Tired of advertising your yard sale, dealing with haggling, and disappointing turnout? Still need to declutter those cute kids clothes and other items? Try consignment!

Benefits of consignment:

  • Make money
  • Declutter your home
  • Help other families find affordable kids clothes and other items
  • NO hoarding stuff you no longer need until you have enough to hold a sale
  • NO plastering your address all over the Internet, hanging up signs or advertising in the paper
  • NO getting up before dawn Friday and Saturday mornings
  • NO strangers at your house
  • NO haggling with customers–AT ALL
  • NO cashbox to tend or change to give
  • NO trips to DI with unsold merchandise

At KIDSmart, we use a premier consignment system to make things easy for our sellers. You tag your merchandise and sign up for a volunteer shift (for early shopping privileges)—all from the comfort of your home. The week of the sale, you place your items in their designated areas, shop and save money. Each night you can track what’s already sold. After the sale, you can pick up items you’d like to keep (or we can donate them for you!) and your check.

What’s the catch? It’s only one week, twice a year. So mark your calendars and don’t miss it! Sign up to consign now!

Volunteer

Did you know? Volunteers at the sale set up, help sellers set out their clothes, keep the floor organized and orderly, run the checkout lines and prevent theft, and break down. They keep us running!

In exchange, volunteers get the first crack at shopping. And you don’t have to be a seller to volunteer.

At KIDSmart, we use a premier consignment system for volunteers to sign up for 4-hour shifts before, during and/or after the sale. We need you–and we’ll bet you’ll love the deals! Register with our consignor site and click on the Volunteer tab!

About

KIDSmart was founded by Ryan and Jordan McCollum. A native of North Carolina, Jordan saw the incredible deals and the money that her friends and family got at consignment sales back home. Ryan and Jordan knew that their home in Utah Valley, with its emphasis on family and thrift, would be the perfect place to establish a consignment sale. They’re excited to help local families save money and make money while keeping kids their cutest! More about the McCollums & KIDSmart

About Jordan

About Jordan

Jordan McCollum is a wife and mom to five children. After years of watching her friends and family score amazing deals at consignment sales across the country, she had to bring a seasonal sale to Utah Valley!

Jordan sees running this sale and making raising a family affordable for everyone in Utah Valley as an act of service, a way to give back to her community.

About Ryan

About Ryan

As a father of five, Ryan McCollum is always on the lookout for a great deal and enjoys saving his family money. (He’s killer at case lot sales!) He’s happy to bring this same ability to other families in our community.

Ryan brings his skills in inventory management, operations and efficiency to KIDSmart. Possibly most of all, he brings his years of dad assembly and handyman experience!

The KIDSmart family!

The KIDSmart family!

KIDSmart is a locally owned company, not a franchise—so you’re likely to find all five of our kids there! Our oldest son loves to fix things and run a checkout stand, while our next daughter is a great greeter. Our middle daughter is great at helping shoppers with their bags, and the youngest two are always demonstrating the toys for anyone who’ll watch. It’s a family affair! (more…)
