Spring Consignment Sales and Markets to Shop
Spring has officially arrived in the Queen City. Runners are dodging canker worms, cars have a greenish tint from pollen, and flowers are in full bloom. As the weather gets warmer, it’s time to put away sweaters and heavy winter coats. Need some new pieces for spring, but don’t want to spend too much money? No problem. There are plenty of markets, consignment sales, and pop up shops in April and May to get you and your family’s spring and summer wardrobes ready.
