It’s the time of year when we all start shopping for the perfect Halloween costume for the kiddos. Last year’s costume is old news and needs to be replaced so why not sell it at one of San Diego’s upcoming kids’ resale events and use the money you earn to buy your new-to-you costume at up to 90% off?
In October the famous Parent Connection Family Swap Meet will take place on Sunday, October 13th, offering families like ours the opportunity to purge the clothes, books, toys, gear and costumes that our kids have outgrown and make money to buy the things we do need.
The family swap meet is a traditional style sales event where each seller has her own space and sells directly to the families who are shopping. The cost to purchase a sales space is only $30 for members and $45 for non-members. All proceeds are the seller’s to keep.
The Parent Connection is San Diego’s oldest parenting network, celebrating 40 years of serving San Diego families! The swap attracts thousands of buyers and hundreds of sellers. Make it your first choice for buying/selling the things your family has outgrown!

The weekend after the Parent Connection Swap meet is a saving extravaganza of a different type. When you buy or sell with the Just Between Friends sale, the setting is more like a department store. Items are displayed by category (clothes, books, toys, strollers, furniture, etc.), neatly arranged and curated to provide only the highest quality items. Sellers tag their items with their preferred price and drop them off for the JBF staff to arrange into an easy shopping experience.
On the last day of the sale, many items drop to 1/2 price. And at the sale’s conclusion, sellers can simply pick up their unsold items or mark them for donation to one of San Diego’s non-profit beneficiaries.
Just Between Friends is centrally located at the Scottish Rite Center with plenty of free parking. This year’s sale kicks off with a Deluxe Shopping Event where you’ll pay a $20 shopping fee but get the best pick of the sale starting at 3:30 p.m. on Friday, October 18th.

After the Halloween craziness has subsided, San Diego has yet another way for you to sell and save on baby and kid items. The Skyline Swap is completely different from the Parent Connection Swap and Just Between Friends Sale. At Skyline, you simply bring the items your family no longer needs and snag that same number of items of things that you do need.
The Skyline Swap is perfect for families who really want to purge the items they don’t need any longer. You’re not going to make any money, but you will feel great about your items going to help other local families. And, hopefully, while you’re there you will find things that your kids could really use.
No items to swap? No problem! Anyone can shop the Skyline Swap and take home items for just $1 per item. The $2 entry fee benefits Skline Church’s women’s programming.
Saturday, November 9th
8 a.m. – 1 p.m.
