In today's sluggish economy, everyone is looking to save a little money on necessities and maybe make a little extra income as well. This is why Sheri Squillace opened the Blue Moon Children's Consignment Store on Broad Street in Quakertown."Children's clothes aren't worn all that long," said Squillace, "and if people are willing to try stores like this then they will see that they are getting a good bargain. The clothing here sells at a quarter of the price you would pay for them in a retail store."

According to Squillace, one does not have to sacrifice quality for a good bargain. "I won't put anything in here that has a stain or anything like that. All the products here are clean."

The inspiration for Blue Moon Consignments came to Squillace when she saw how much children's clothing she had around the house. She decided to sell the used clothing at discounted prices, as well as open her store to consignments so that others may do the same with their excess children's clothing. "Consignment shops are a great place for people who don't have the time to list something on eBay," said Squillace. "These types of shops are a good way for people to put a little extra money back in their pocket."

Blue Moon Consignments sells and accepts children's clothing from infants to size 16. Squillace also carries children's books and toys. The store is located at 308 W. Broad Street and is open Tuesdays and Wednesdays 4:15-8 p.m., Thursdays 9 a.m.-5 p.m., and Saturdays 9:30 a.m.-4 p.m. If you would like more information or would like to set up an appointment, please call (215) 892-1188.
