Flexible List

Think ahead 6 months. What gifts, clothes, toys, gear will you need? Plan ahead to SAVE

Timing Trick

For BEST selection & one-of-a-kind deals, use EARLY ACCESS! When you shop determines what you find! BEST OPTION: consign!

j

Pen Trick

DON'T MISS OUT bc you don't have a pen! Some deals GO FAST. You'll need a pen to fill out Claim Ticket info on those large, in-demand items that are too big to carry.

String Trick

Bring a piece of string (one set of colors for each kid) that are the length of their inseam, and the circumference of their waist. Helps you know if it’ll fit!

j

Tracing Trick

Trace your child’s foot on a piece of cardboard. If it fits in the shoe, it’ll fit your kid!

Phone Trick

Do a quick pricing or product search to know what you're saving!

Adult Time?

Thurs-Sat kids are welcome! But, you'll enjoy shopping more when you're kid free!

Bring a Friend!

Grab a shopping buddy and have a fun night out!
