What Will be Offered at the Children's Attic?

You name it, it will be there. There will be everything from clothing (sizes newborn to youth 16), toys, games, books, furniture, baby equipment, and more. I have done live broadcasts from the Children's Attic more times than I can count and it's always a huge turnout. There are massive white tents lined up with clothes upon clothes, you'll really be able to clean up at this sale. It's a great way to get quality items at deep discounts.

Can I Be Seller at the Children's Attic? Are Volunteers Needed?
