Mom To Mom Consign...New Version & Fall Promotion


As most of you know, I LOVE consignment. As most of you also know, in addition to doing The Queen City Buzz each week, I co-own a children's consignment iPhone app and website called Mom To Mom Consign. We just released a new version of the app to the App Store, and the website is almost complete. If you love consignment, or know someone who does, I hope you'll check it out. You can download the FREE app HERE. Through November 1st, anyone that downloads the app, and creates a new account will be entered to win a $100 Visa gift card!!

Speaking of consignment...there are LOTS of wonderful fall sales happening this week. Check out the calendar for details.
