We're next to Augusta State University between Walton Way & Wrightsboro Road. We typically have over 50,000 items for sale, and we usually have around 200 consignors. We now have 292 consignors registered for this year! In addition to name brand clothes for babies through teens we also have cribs, strollers, changing tables, comforter sets, nursery decor, bicycles, books, dvd, computer games, outside riding toys, and maternity clothes. 60% of the proceeds go to the consignor & 40% of the proceeds benefit Trinity on the Hill church missions.

LOVE THE CHILDREN'S CONSIGNMENT SALE !!!!! It serves the consignor, the church and the community. Doesn't get much better than that AND the women and men who organize and run the sale are some of the most dedicated and creative people I have ever known.

God Bless You.
