Resale Race: Cedar Chest Thrift Shop vs. Green Kids Resale

Back-to-School shopping doesn’t have to cost a small fortune and you don’t have to run all over Lake County to get the best deals. We’re so excited to invite you to join us for our Resale Race on August 14 with Cedar Chest Thrift Shop and Green Kids Resale!

The back-to-school season can feel so expensive with registration fees, fall activity costs, school supplies and clothes (plus those gym shoes!). Shopping at resale stores in Lake County is extremely valuable — the quality of the items combined with the low prices just makes sense! Whether you need another pair of gym shoes for school, jackets, or all of your child’s clothing for the next year — it’s worth the adventure of resale shopping!

We’ve partnered with Cedar Chest Thrift Shop and Green Kids Resale in a friendly competition to show you the value of resale shopping. We’re sending three writers to the shops to put together an outfit for one of their kids — the shop with the most “likes” after five days wins! Be on the lookout across social media to cast your vote!

Let’s meet the contestants!

Cedar Chest Thrift Shop at Lambs Farm has everything you could be looking for — even some new items! This shop offers quality donated items, which keeps prices incredibly low and sets Cedar Chest apart from others! Drop off clothes from last year as a donation before you shop and you’ll have a clean closet to fill upon your return home! From fashionable pieces, to classic wardrobe staples, it can all be found here. Since it operates as a thrift shop there is no telling what you will find here as everything they have is donated.
