Valentine’s Day at 529 Kids Consign

As we enter into the second month of 2021 (how is this even possible??), 529 is prepping for the best COVID-Valentine’s Day ever! Just because the kids are on Zoom, and most likely not exchanging those precious Valentine’s this year, doesn’t mean we can’t play cupid and make them feel the love! As a mom, I have tried to make things as “normal” as possible for my boys during the pandemic and Valentine’s Day is no exception.

I had so much fun curating a Valentine’s Day assortment fit for every little princess in town. Boy moms have no fear; as a boy mom myself I know the way to little princes’ hearts too. With help from my sweet Ashton (5) we have a super fun selection of toys and games.

I love to get my kids involved in buying for 529. It has inspired the older two to go into business. After their Zoom calls, they head out and set up shop in the neighborhood to sell “cool” vintage-inspired stickers that they purchased in bulk. One of the many silver linings of the past year is the creativity that the kids have been forced to find within.

We are so excited to show off our newest line: Tiny Treats & Zomi Gems. Based in LA, this women-owned, eco-friendly line brings every girl’s dream of carrying a Chanel bag to life. Their precious line of handbags are quilted or tweed and adorned with pearls, of course. They can be carried by the pearl handle or as a crossbody.


Prices range from $30 – $35


Every little gal needs a heart hair accessory. From acrylic headbands to sequins hearts and grosgrain bows, we are stocked with something for every style. They can look fabulous on their Zoom Valentine’s celebration and, of course, on your Instagram feed.


Prices range from $6 – $18


Valentine’s Day would not be complete without a heart print mask. D’maran, a local designer, has been keeping our 529 kiddos safe and on-trend for the past year. So naturally, she created a Valentine’s Day mask assortment that is no exception.


Price $13.50


Now for the boys…
As a boy momma, I know it is difficult to keep these boys occupied while we are at home. So, as I said earlier, I turned to the toy expert in my family for help. Ashton created the most fun assortment, and I hope your little guys love the toys as much as Ashton does. We have everything from DIY RC trucks and airplanes that keep them busy for hours to the largest bouncy ball ever made!


DIY Remote Control Fire Truck Build it Yourself 3 in 1, Price $32.00
Wicked Mega Bounce XL The world’s Bounciest Inflatable Ball, Price $34.99
Hyper Runner Stunt 360-degree Double-Sided RC Car, Price $29.99

Hang in there, mommas! Come see us at 529 and we will help make this Valentine’s Day special.

Much love,
Megan xo


  • The latest from Megan
Megan’s career in retail/merchandising began in the mid nineties standing in front of a woodsy smelling Abercrombie and Fitch. Sporting an oversized plaid flannel and bootcut jeans she said hello to every customer that eagerly walked in to the popular retailer. Little did Megan know that, while creating a perfect “denim wall”and dressing in all of the latest fashion that the lifestyle brand offered she was building the foundation for her fun and exciting career! After graduating from the University of Pittsburgh, Megan managed multiple A&F stores before she moved on to an assistant buyer position in contemporary dresses at the local Arlington based retailer Hecht’s (now Macy’s). She gained an immeasurable amount of knowledge before moving onto a different facet of the business at Calvin Klein Jeans. Megan worked her way from retail coordinator to East-Coast regional manager helping to create the Calvin Klein aesthetic in department stores from Boston to Miami. After her first son Ethan was born, her position at CKJ was eliminated, due to the harsh economic conditions at the time. This is how 529 was born! Megan quickly began to see how fast Ethan was growing out of his clothing. She knew other moms had the same amount of adorable “gently-worn” clothing piling up. Combining her love of retail and her obsession with dressing Ethan gave her the idea to try and sell this clothing. 529 became a popular “pop-up” shop in the Alexandria area and once the following was big enough, a brick and mortar store in historic Old Town. 529 Kids Consign exemplifies who Megan is and what she has learned throughout her career. It’s a warm, well-organized, well- edited boutique that attracts moms from all over the DC metro area. On any given visit to the store you may be greeted by three boys dressed to the nines..they too have the passion.

We are an upscale children's and maternity consignment boutique specializing in the latest trends. Quality is important to us, which is why we are particular about our brands. Offering not only consignment items but also the freshest and most trendy must haves for hip moms and cool kids makes us the place to shop!
