Consignment sale benefits children's ministries, last day to shop

Posted:
NASHVILLE, Tenn. -

The Otter Creek Church of Christ Kids Consignment Sale opened for business at 10 a.m. Thursday.

Customers began waiting in line as early as 6 a.m. Shopper Sharon Omark told Nashville's News 2 she waited in line four hours to get into the sale first.

"When you have three kids, as expensive as it is with the recession, it is a good deal and I have to provide for my family," she explained.  

Omark had several items on her shopping list.

"There's clothes, there's baby goods, there is just anything that you can think of that you can get at a retail store for a third too maybe half of the price," she said.

Thursday marks the eighth year for the Otter Creek Consignment sale, which is operated entirely by volunteers.

"We have raised over $300,000 to date from the sale," said Volunteer Laura Troupe said, adding, "The unique thing about this sale is it is completely not for profit and it is run solely by volunteers. We don't pay anyone to work here; it is just all people giving from the goodness of their heart."

The sale is held twice a year with all the proceeds going to children's ministries.

"I can't write a $300,000 check, but I can give a few hours and volunteer my time to benefit children's ministries locally and around the world." Troupe said.

Troupe added the sale has grown tremendously over the eight years it has been in existence.

"I think moms are out here looking for great deals," she said.
 
Thursday's sale was only open to volunteers who donated four or more hours to the sale.

Public shopping hours are Friday 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Saturday 8 a.m. to 2 p.m.

The multi day sale wraps up Saturday at 2 p.m.

The good news is the doors open at 8 a.m. Saturday and everything is half off.

    (CNN) - When many people sneeze, it's instinctive for others to respond by offering a "bless you" in the person's direction. That gesture got a Tennessee student kicked out of class this week after violating a classroom rule.
