Outgrown it sales are excellent if you have a lot of stuff and a day to spend selling it. Usually tables range from $10 to $50, depending on size and traffic. The huge one out on Spruce Grove is the Little Monsters Swap Meet or closer to home is the Gish Baby Sale in St. Albert. Watch for smaller ones in your local community centres.
Mom Facebook groups are amazing for selling stuff too. The best part is that you’re usually selling to a friend of a friend. This way, you can find the person you sold something to and buy it back because you are pregnant with your second ;). Here are a few Edmonton groups: West Edmonton Moms Garage Sale or Edmonton & Area Mommy’s Garage Sale.
