Sellers needed for annual Little Lambs sale

Published 12:00 am Saturday, February 16, 2013

It’s that time of year again – to clean out the closet and make a little extra cash at the Little Lambs consignment sale.

Organizer Shirley Tew said that November’s two-day event was a huge success and the group will host another two-day event in March.

“November’s was the best we’ve ever had,” she said. “We are very grateful to the community for their support.”

This annual event is sponsored by the Little Lambs Council, a group of Christian women dedicated to helping local mothers sell their gently-used clothing, buy gently-used clothing for their own children and raise money for a local charity that helps women and children in the community.

The event would be no good without its consignors, which are needed to make the event a success.

Tew said the deadline to become a consignor is March 1, less than two weeks away.

Sellers must have at least 25 items. Sales are split with 75 percent going to the seller and 25 percent to the LLC, which will help fund a local charity.

“We’re looking for used clothing – both for children of all ages and maternity clothes – toys, books, shoes and furniture,” Tew said. “So many appreciate this sale. It benefits so many.”

The event will be held at the Guardian Angel Christian Academy building on Ala. Hwy 55 near Samurai Japanese Steakhouse.

Packets are available at Blackston Quality Eye Care, First Baptist Church of Opp and South Alabama Pediatrics in Opp. Tew also said there will be forms in a mailbox at 201 Academy Drive.

Items must be brought to the building on Thurs., March 7 from 6 p.m. until 9 p.m. or Fri., March 8 from 8 a.m. until 2 p.m.

The event will be held March 8 from 7 p.m. until 9 p.m. and March 9 from 7 a.m. until noon.
