About Us

The Children's Clothesline is a unique, highly organized child consignment sale event held each Spring & Fall in Hanover, Ma.  Our Sale is "contagious", once you discover The Children's Clothesline it will be an event you will never miss again! 

We are not a “new” sale.  We are the South Shore's Original Child ConsignmentSale Event.  Our “little” sale started in September 2006 with just 52 consignors and has steadily grown to over 250 consignors!

Since 2006, we have been helping families with the cost of raising children by giving them a venue to make extra money on outgrown items and buying needed items at a fraction of the retail costs!

We offer only the finest selection of "gently used" items including Baby, Children's and Teen clothing, Shoes, Sports Equipment, Nursery Furniture and Décor, Baby Equipment, Toys, Children's Music & Videos, Costumes, Maternity, and much more!!

See what our shoppers, consignors & volunteers are saying about us!

I just want to give you a brief description of my experience with The Children's Clothesline. I am a new mom to a four months baby girl and a veteran mom to two teenage ladies. I have a niece that spreads the word about your sale every year and this year she asked me to go with her. This is the first time I have ever been to your sale, or any consignment sale for that matter. I want you to know how THRILLED I was with the quality and prices of your items.

I went there with intentions of spending about $30. I walked out of there spending just about $230.00 over my two day shopping extravaganza! I got so much for the price. I must have saved at least $500.00! I purchased a glider rocker with ottoman for myself, a crib set including mobile, a caterpillar rocker, a glow worm, four padded colorful children's folding chairs, a brand new photo album, tons of age appropriate toys and books, an entire summer wardrobe for the baby as well as some fall jeans. I will never purchase another toy at full price again!!! I loved this so much that I went back on Saturday with my best friend (who also has never been) and she is now in love with it also! She has told her family about the sale and they are going to come to the next one in April! I just want to give you a big THANK YOU for all of your hard work! The sale was great and every person that was working was helpful and so nice! – Faith B. (2013)

SALE! I have been participating in this sale since it started and I continue to do so. I travel quite a distance to sell and buy because of the organization, great selection and the friendly people that all help put it together. Hope to see you all in the fall! – Susan C. (8/2010)

Love this sale! Can get great bargains and volunteering there is fun as well. It’s a great way to meet other Mommies in the area and share advice while increasing your own commission if you're a consignor. – Mish (3/2011)

I really enjoy this sale. I used a consignment store in town until it closed and was very happy to find The Children's Clothesline Sale. It is very organized and the people are so friendly. I have found some really great items for my 3 kids at the past 4 sales. – LAB (3/2011)

This event is very organized and easy to consign with. Most of all is t fun to volunteer with such positive people. Know that we are working for a cause to help so many moms, like myself, to get a bargain on children’s clothing and toys. Times are tough for a lot of us and The Children’s Clothesline makes it fun and inexpensive to shop during this economical times. I love it! I love it! Thank you, Laura for bringing this event to
Massachusetts 5 years ago!!!  - Shanda B. (3/2011)

I just wanted to thank you for having such a fabulous sale!!  I am a new Mom and my husband and I had a ball on Saturday.  - Nicole G. (

Just wanted to send you a note and tell you how impressed I was with the whole consigning process!  Everything was so easy to work with, and the sale setup was great!  I’m looking forward to the fall sale!
