CLARENCE, N.Y. (WKBW) — Gently used strollers, toys, winter boots and more all for a fraction of the normal price at Bella Kids this Friday at 9am in the Transit-Towne Plaza in Clarence.
"It's like the concept reduce reuse recycle kind of," said Kristi Mora, the owner and founder of Bella Kids, "We have over 4,000 families that consign with us every sale. We get 50,000 items from them."
Mora has become an expert at staging these pop-up sales.
"It's busy. Organized chaos is what I'd like to call it. Families have now come to rely on it from season to season," said Mora.
She says her goal is to help families get a little more bang for their buck.
"It's really heartwarming to hear the stories that htey rely on this sale. They don't do any shopping between my spring sale, my back to school sale and my winter sale. They are Bella Kids loyalists. That gives them money to be able to do fun things with their families and go out to dinners and take little get-aways," Mora said.
This year, they're giving back to the community as well. They're taking donations to benefit FeedMore WNY.
"They're doing a lot of things but most importantly a diaper and wipe drive. Diapers and wipes aren't some of the thigns we can get with federal funding dollars but there's a huge need in our community for those needs," said Anne Mckenna, the Chief Communications Officer at FeedMore WNY.
"We want to promote the good work of other organizations that are helping those with the greatest need throughout our community," said Mora.
While Mora said the weekend is exhausting, she said it's all worth it.
"To see the families that are in such great need benefit form this - it's fantistic," said Mora.
