About Us

Tama Locklair McGee, originally from Florence, SC, currently lives in Atlanta, GA with her husband Brian and her daughter and son. After 7 years of teaching music in the public school system, Tama is now a stay-at-home, homeschooling mom.

Kathryn Brannon, also of Atlanta, GA, lives with her husband and their son. Kathryn is a portrait photographer for children and families and has recently helped open a new school in the atlanta area, Heartwood Agile Learning Center.

Tama and Kathryn became friends while pregnant with their sons and found something in common right away: their love of shopping for a good deal! As single-income families, they had to shop for their children's clothing, shoes, and toys each season while sticking to a budget. Tama and Kathryn enjoy shopping consignment sales for bargains and buying "name brand" items at a discounted price. After shopping them for a while, Tama and Kathryn began selling at Atlanta area consignment sales and started making money off of toys, clothing, shoes and other items their kids had outgrown. Kathryn loves the idea of recycling her son's gently used items and is glad to know that someone else can continue to enjoy them at a great price. "Sometimes I earn as much or more selling as I spend for the next season," says Tama. "It's almost like renting the kids' stuff!" Both agree that selling at a weekend-long seasonal consignment sale yields much quicker payoff than consigning through a typical consignment store. It also allows them to shop at the Preview Sale, which is held for sellers only before opening to the public.
