What You'll Get
Consignment shopping combines the wisdom of saving money with the thrill of crushing piggybanks barehanded. Change the way you shop with today’s Groupon: for $12, you get a $20 gift certificate and a reusable shopping tote at the semi-annual Mothertime Marketplace sale at The Fairgrounds, located in Hamburg (a $25 value). This Groupon may be redeemed at the spring consignment sale (April 2–3) or at the fall sale (date TBA). This Groupon does not cover the cost of admission, which is $3 per adult for the entire weekend or $1 for Sunday only.
Mothertime Marketplace hosts a semi-annual consignment sale of children’s clothing, toys, furniture, equipment, maternity clothing, and accessories at 50 percent–75 percent below retail. All items are set up like a department store in a 15,000-square-foot facility, where deal-seeking shoppers can use their $20 gift certificate to harvest the cream of the consignment crop. A reusable tote ($5 value) helps lug portable swag, and large items can be claimed by asking a Mothertime volunteer to place it on hold. Like Thanksgiving dinner in a white-cheeked gibbon habitat, all goodies are first come, first serve, so brachiate in early to get dibs on the tastiest morsels. Mothertime Marketplace ensures a high-quality shopping experience for buyers by having clear guidelines on what items they will accept and how they should be prepared.
