Spring Children's Consignment Sale March 11 & 12

It's that time again! This is the week we stage our church consignment sale. It's a huge affair, takes up a 20,000 square foot building, involves 250 consignors, plus hundreds upon hundreds of volunteers. This isn't the old church yard sale where everyone shows up on a Saturday morning and uses a magic marker and masking tape. We use barcodes to track everything and are computerized for checkout. While most of our consignors and shoppers are from Augusta and the immediate area we also have many who drive an hour or more to be with us. 40% of the proceeds benefit our mission partners, plus it's a great community outreach as we meet so many neighbors and offer an "open door" that helps us build relationships with a great variety of people.

I'll post some pictures later in the week.
