Giveaway: Fairytale Threads $50 Gift Cards


Attention, savvy shoppers! The Fairytale Threads consignment sale returns to Austin next week, and two Free Fun in Austin readers will win gift cards to spend at the event! Each prize pack includes two presale passes along with a $50 gift card!

Never attended Fairytale Threads before? This consignment event, held several times each year in the Austin area, allows families to sell their new and gently loved items for babies, toddlers and kids to other families looking for a great deal. At an event, consignors turn their clutter into cash as shoppers find excellent deals on clothes for children of all ages and stages, from newborns to kids’ size 16, as well as books, gear and toys for kids, babies and toddlers; maternity clothes for mama; and more.

Each and every item for sale has been carefully inspected to ensure that shoppers are choosing from only the highest quality items, including top brands and toys for all ages. And everything is priced to sell! This great community event provides families with a wonderful way to recycle their items and to make the most of their hard-earned dollars.

Public shopping dates with FREE admission:

Thursday, October 30, 10 a.m. – 7 p.m.

Friday, October 31, 10 a.m. – 3 p.m.
Items marked “reduce” will be 25% off

Saturday, November 1, 10 a.m. – 4 p.m.
Items marked “reduce” will be 50% off

The main shopping event is Thursday, October 30 through Saturday, November 11, but there are also presales on Tuesday and Wednesday, October 28 and 29. Pay $10 to shop the Super Shoppers Presale on Tuesday at 6:30 p.m. First responders are invited to shop at the Wednesday presale for free. New moms can register for the Wednesday presale here. (Note that, while children are allowed to attend the main shopping event, they are not admitted to the presales, except for infants in carriers/slings. Many shoppers find that leaving the kids at home is best, so they can really shop!)

Catherine A. Morris is a romance novelist and freelance writer as well as a once-and-future teacher, musician and triathlete living in southwest Austin, Texas. Yes, many of her former passions and pastimes have given way, for now, to her current, main passion and pastime: caring for her two toddlers, Pearl and Zephyr. Pearl and Zeph make Catherine and her husband laugh (and cry) on a daily basis, and give Catherine plenty of good reasons to seek out free, fun activities to keep everyone alive, engaged and happy from one moment to the next.
