TUCSON, Ariz. (KOLD News 13) - Back-to-school shopping adds up, especially for families on a tight budget. And who doesn’t love a good deal?
Through Saturday, good deals will be abundance at the Just Between Friends consignment sale at the Tucson Convention Center, which is located at 260 S. Church Avenue.
First-time parents Hillary Martinez and Dennis Robles were shopping at the TCC Thursday. It was the couple’s first time at the event that’s been in Tucson for more than 10 years.
They were shopping for their 2-month-old son.
"He grows out of his stuff super fast,” Martinez said.
The pop-up thrift store had everything parents could need -- strollers, clothes, books and toys, even stuff for older children and teens.
“We are in the ballroom, the short galleria and the lobby,” said Shawna Wilfert, an organizer for Just Between Friends. “So, I estimate we’re at about 30,000 square feet. We started today with over 100,000 items under one roof.”
Martinez and Robles were mainly looking for clothes.
“All this baby stuff is so cute, and I wish he could stay in it longer because when you buy it brand new, you don’t really get your money’s worth,” Martinez said.
The family filled up an entire bag worth of finds, and plans to come back again next year.
