- UPDATED:  Thanks so much to Macey for reminding us about the Savvy Sale on Thursday, October 13th - Saturday, October 15th.  This is a HUGE consignment event and boutique.  I've heard great things about this - so if you need children's clothes, don't miss this event.  The Savvy Sale is located at 1330 S.
