Welcome to the Fall 2014 edition of the Richmond children’s consignment sales list! Sales will be scattered August through October plus one or two in November, and I’ll update this list as additional ones announce their dates. A few notes on this list – Fancy Pants will be held at Eurotrash in Carytown for the first time, and Ring Around the Rosy’s and Kids Layne’s owners are stepping down from the biz.

As always, visit the websites if you’re interested in selling some of your kid stuff, or if you want to volunteer and benefit from the preview shopping hours. Pregnant ladies, new moms, and grandparents can sometimes shop preview sales as well; look for information on sale websites about registering in advance.

And now the list, in order by date:

    $10 for $20 Worth of Frozen Yogurt at Menchie’s of White Oak Village (4501 S Laburnum Ave Suite 510)

The obvious possible drawback is that the whole amount has to be used in one visit, so makes the most sense if you’re feeding a crowd! Also, expirations vary from 30 to 90 days.

Not in the mood for ice cream? There are Krispy Kreme and Carytown Cupcakes Groupons available too.

Sam’s Club – $45 for a One-Year Sam’s Club Membership, $20 Gift Card, and Free Fresh-Food Vouchers ($91.23 Total Value)

Cheap Date Idea: Walking RVA

My husband Brad and I aren’t big dinner daters – planning a babysitter and bedtime plus the cost of meals (and wine!) tend to deter us on all but the most special occasions

Last week we dropped the boys off with a friend and spent a morning exploring Byrd Park and Cary Street neighborhoods on foot. I have trouble walking and photographing simultaneously, but here are a few pictures from our journey:

footbridge over the Downtown Expressway
downtown expressway footbridge
downtown expressway
boulevard exit sign
uptown community garden
Light of Human Kindness wall at the old GRTC bus depot
light of human kindness wall
rva mural project cary street
sidewalk in Byrd Park
byrd park neighborhood

So taking a walk in a new place isn’t exactly revolutionary, but don’t underestimate it in date value! You get exercise, conversation, and entertainment (all free), and see things about your city you miss when driving. (You still have to arrange childcare, but I’ve found that tends to be easier and/or cheaper during the day) With any luck or a little prior planning, you’ll run across a coffee shop, ice cream parlor, farmer’s market, or other establishment where you can grab a treat, too!

Obviously, walking WITH kids works great too (as long as yours aren’t in the awkward “too big for strollers, too tired for long-distances” stage like ours are). You need a sturdy stroller for non-walkers because city sidewalks tend to be uneven.

What walks do you recommend? What about your favorite cheap date?? (Comment here or on Facebook)
