Getting to Know the Sale

Since its inception in 1993, the Parent Talk Sale has grown into a large scale consignment sale, drawing shoppers from the Boston and Metrowest Area. Run exclusively by more than 100 volunteers, the Sale features bargain-priced, high-quality, new or gently used items for children from birth to ten including books, toys, clothes, furniture, maternity clothes and seasonally appropriate clothes.


Proceeds from the Sale benefit Parent Talk’s community work and events. All unsold items are donated directly to local charities to help fulfill their missions. Previous charities have included Cradles to Crayons, Baby Bundles, Circle of Hope and Department of Children and Family Services.


Please consider DONATING CONSIGNING, VOLUNTEERING or SHOPPING! The Sale is open to the public and membership in Parent Talk is not required to donate, consign, volunteer or shop.

The 2019 Spring Sale is sponsored by Needham Bank, the Charles River School, Dedham Country Day and Webster Bank. If you have any questions regarding the sale, please do not hesitate to contact the Sale Co-Chairs at


Donations of items to the sale are tax-deductible. For location drop-off information and other questions, please email

Note: Due to current safety standards, regrettably, we cannot accept stuffed animals, cribs, car seats more than five years old or any recalled item. Please check the Consumer Product Safety Commission website for a complete list of recalled items.


Parent Talk has a consignment process for new or gently used children’s clothing, toys or equipment, that entitles you to a portion of the proceeds of all sold items.  Email with any questions.


The Sales’ successes are due to the time and enthusiasm of an amazing core of volunteers. Work a two-hour shift before and/or during in exchange for preferred shopping hours the day before the sale. Please review the list of Volunteer Guidelines. Previous volunteers will receive an email with the link for signing up. New volunteers should contact to get on the email list.
