Trading Hands Kids Sale…
Trading Hands Kids sale was started in 2006, in Springfield MO. Since that time, we have grown steadily and we are located at the 35,000 sq ft Ozark Empire Fairgrounds E-Plex, offering gently-used items, including toys, clothing, furniture, baby equipment and much more!
In March 2013, we started a new sale location in Springfield ILLINOIS. This sale is located at the Illinois State Fairgrounds, ORR Building. We are thrilled to be bringing families in Central Illinois the opportunity to stretch their family budget by shopping & selling by consignment.
In Spring 2022, we are SO excited to be adding the KCC Sale in Peoria, IL and they will become Trading Hands Peoria IL!
We hope to see you at one of our next events!
In the past, we have donated to the following organizations:
Springfield PTA Clothing Bank
Least of These
The Free Store
Mini Obeirne Crisis Nursery
Local foster care agencies
Inner City Mission
If your local non-profit organization would be interested in accepting donated items from future sales in either location, please email Julie@tradinghands.net for info.
Our Sale Organizer, Julie Rhoads…
