Spring might be a time for cleaning out the closets but what are you to do with all of that space?

Go shopping, of course!

Fort Wayne, Indiana and the surrounding area have plenty of opportunities to refresh your family's wardrobe and update accessories while also getting a thing or two you might need.

Spring Shopping in Fort Wayne, Indiana

The Lucky Duck Children's Consignment Sale

When: March 22-25, 2018

Hours: On Thursday, 4:30-9 p.m. Volunteers Shop (volunteer pass required); 6-9 p.m. Consignors Shop (consignor pass is required); 7-9 p.m. Consignor's Guest Shops (guest pass required ). On Friday, 6-9 p.m. for general public pre-sale. A $10 ticket is required. Free general admission hours are 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday and Sunday

Where: Allen County War Memorial Coliseum, 4000 Parnell Ave.

What: Consignment sale with more than 30,000 square feet of newborn to junior-sized clothing for boys and girls, as well as toys, movies, decor, bikes and books. There's also a maternity and women's clothing section.

A toddler - heck, even a teenager - can turn a brand new outfit from picture-perfect to ruined in less time than it takes for a chip reader to authorize your credit card. And as a mom of two boys, there's nothing worse than seeing a once cute outfit be ruined by chocolate milk or an expensive toy languish in the corner of a bedroom, never to be played with. 

At Lucky Duck, caregivers can check out high-quality children's items at crazy discounts. All of the clothing and toys are inspected before hitting the floor.

What: Thousands of Vera Bradley products are available at a significant discount. Check out the company's signature cotton, leather and microfiber bags as well as jewelry and other accessories.

Nothing says girls' weekend like a day (or three) at the Vera Bradley Outlet Sale. Buyers can shop aisle after aisle of their famous patterns, including new and old. A bag for an upcoming getaway? Snag it. A blanket for cuddling up with a good book? Pick one up, too. I never fail to find items that I didn't know existed but now can't live without.
