Our consignment events are usually held twice a year. Consignment events are a great way to score incredible deals as a shopper (up to 90% off retail), and to make top dollar as a seller on your gently used items.
Our consignors receive 75%% of their sales. The church’s portion of the sales is used to help families referred to us from local non-profit organizations and to support our Children’s Ministry and Youth Ministry with outreach, special projects and mission activities.
Consignor fee: $8.50 which will be deducted from your check. Consignors who work at least 11 hours, including the 5-hour sorting shift, will receive an additional 5%.
The deadline to enter your items into our online system is 12:00 pm on Sunday, March 8.
Unsold Item Pick-Up will be from 2:30 pm until 3:15 pm on Saturday, March 14.
Items remaining after that time will be donated to local families in need, foster families or one of our non-profit partners. If you know of an organization that can benefit from our donated items, please email us (email@example.com). Bring your very best.

Giving Back to the Community
Family Assistance: If you know of someone who has a need for gently used children’s clothing, toys or other baby and children’s items and cannot provide them for his/her family, please encourage them fill out this form. All requests are kept strictly confidential.
Organizations: Our donated items are shared with non-profit organizations, schools and foster families. If your organization could benefit from receiving our donations, please fill out this form. Our charity shopping time will be 3:30-4:30 on Saturday, March 14.
One Special Family: At Children’s Market, we have a tradition of giving the community an opportunity to help a specific family going through extraordinary circumstances. We do this via a virtual shower during the sale. This special event is designed to bless a family who would be shopping at the sale, but because of circumstances beyond their control, cannot attend. If you know of a family who deserves to receive this season’s virtual shower, please fill out this form and share their story. Nominations can be anonymous, but we must be able to contact the family. We will set up a wish list for people to shop with, as well as select new and like-new items at the sale that are available to be purchased for the family.
