LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) -- With many people pinching pennies and clipping coupons to save money, it's no surprise that children's consignment sales continue to grow in popularity.
Duck Duck Goose began nearly two decades ago, and with a struggling economy, both sellers and shoppers are doing better than ever. Many consumers are cashing in by selling unwanted or out grown clothes and toys.
Shopper and consignor Karyn Clifton said this is the place to find bargains.
"You get clothes that are probably in a department store for $20 or $30. You can get for $5," said Clifton, who has been buying and selling at Duck Duck Goose for 12 years.
She said making money really isn't her focus, and instead she trades. She uses the money she makes consigning items to buy new clothes for her youngest daughter.
"Her entire life her clothes have been purchased from here, and then the next year I will turn around and sell her clothes she has outgrown," explained Clifton
For Ashley Chandler, a mom of two, Duck Duck Goose is where she comes to shop.
With $100 to spend, Chandler said buying consignment items stretches her dollar further.
"Much bigger quantity here than at a store. Probably just get 3 or 4 things for that much, and I'll end up with 15 or 20 things," said Chandler."Pajamas are great to find inexpensive and also just some play clothes for spring and summer."
Duck Duck Goose is located at the State Fair Grounds Hall of Industry on 2600 Howard Street. Doors are still open till 9 Thursday and will re-open Friday morning at 7. Beginning Friday night and into Saturday all discounted items will be slashed to 50 percent off.
