Our Virtual Sale Story
How It All Began...
In October 1997, Suzette Decker, an accomplished real estate broker and consummate entrepreneur, was chatting with clients relocating from Tennessee to Louisville. They described a consignment event they attended in Nashville and unknowingly sparked an idea in her that would ultimately change her life as KidStuff Sale was born!
With Suzette’s unique seller/buyer match-making skills that she acquired from her years in real estate, she envisioned a fun and financially beneficial way she could bring families in her community together to buy what they need…and sell what they don’t. Voilà! And the rest is history with more than 25 years and counting serving Kentuckiana families.
The very first event was held in Suzette’s backyard that brought together 30 friends and neighbors over a 3-day period. The outcome was full of promise! Sellers left the sale incredibly pleased to have money in their pockets and more storage space at home! Just as exciting, the shoppers went home just as delighted having found so many quality items at incredible bargains.
Suzette closed that 1997 event ever-more inspired and encouraged to host future events through what was to become KidStuff Sale!

“Nothing has brought me, my family, and our team more joy than meeting KidStuff families and hearing how each of our events has impacted their lives, closets, and bank accounts. KidStuff Sale remains a blessing to all families who participate, as well as our local charities who benefit from donations and merchandise. Watching the reach of KidStuff in the community has been incredibly humbling since our little event in my backyard.”
