Welcome to Half-Pint Online:  October 18-21, 2020

Because we can’t sell and shop at Half-Pint Resale in person this fall, we’ve created Half-Pint Online to fill the need for buying the items we need for our littles during this difficult time.

Half-Pint Online is a virtual pop-up event taking starting on Sunday, October 18th ad 9AM thru Wednesday October 21st at 9 PM.

While Half-Pint Online doesn’t offer the same flexibility and selection that we all look forward to during the inperson event, we think that Half-Pint Online will give you the ease of shopping safely at home with no-contact pickup or delivery after the sale is over. 

Because this is a unique way to run a consignment sale, we ask that you please read all of the information below before you shop and purchase!

Half-Pint Consignors are listing their best items, and they should be free of stains, rips, etc.  Toys and Puzzles should be complete.  This is a great place to buy and stash away some toys or items for the holiday season and winter months.
