Children’s clothing, toys and other items will be on sale at Riverchase UMC’s TNT consignment sale.
The Riverchase Day School at Riverchase United Methodist Church will host its TNT (Tried ‘N True) consignment sale and fundraiser for the spring on March 4 from 9 a.m.-6 p.m. and March 5 from 8 a.m.-1 p.m.
Proceeds from the sale support children’s programs at the church, as well as other children’s programs in Birmingham, the United States and countries such as Kenya, Haiti and Jamaica.
The volunteer-managed sale “is an easy way to clean out closets and earn extra spending money,” said spokesperson Leslie DeLoach.
Lots of items are available for shoppers, according to DeLoach, who said the last spring sale had 34,000 items.
The sale accepts children’s seasonal clothing from infants to size 18, as well as cleats, dance clothing, dance shoes, belts, shoes and back packs. The sale also features toys, bikes, electronic games, books and puzzles and baby items as cribs, strollers and high chairs.
There will be a 30 percent price reduction on select items on Saturday only.
Sign up for sellers and volunteers began on Feb. 1 at the event web site. Sellers must pay a $10 registration fee and will receive 70 percent of the proceeds from their sale items.
Volunteers and consignors are allowed to shop the sale early – volunteers on Thursday at 4 p.m. and consignors on Thursday at 6 p.m.
The twice-yearly sales began in 1998 as a way to raise money for Riverchase Day School and have helped fund playground equipment, nursery equipment, iPads and other classroom items, according to DeLoach.
Riverchase United Methodist Church is located at 1953 Old Highway 31 in Hoover.
