The Little Lamb Consignment Sale is ready to set up shop for its spring sale.

Little Lamb, a non-profit group made up of mothers and grandmothers, will host three sales in the Meadowview Christian School gym from March 12 to March 14.

“We sell children’s clothes, any kind of children’s gear like strollers, baby beds and anything like that,” said Little Lamb Chairwoman Claire Gibbs. “We also sell juniors clothes and car seats – basically anything you would need for a child.”

The first chance for people to shop at the Little Lamb Consignment sale is Thursday night at the preview sale, which starts at 7:15 p.m. and costs $5.

“The door money for the preview sale on Thursday night … all of that money will go to SABRA Sanctuary this year,” Gibbs said.

The other two sales will be Friday night from 5:30 p.m. until 7:30 p.m. and Saturday morning from 8:30 a.m. until 10:30 a.m.

The sale is an annual tradition that has been going on since 1992.

“People have kids and they want to sell their clothes and buy new clothes for them, so it just keeps going,” Gibbs said.

Gibbs said the sale offers people great prices for gently used items.

“Children don’t wear their clothes very long before they outgrow them, so the [clothes] are all very gently used, and all of the bedding and beds and everything else is gently used,” Gibbs said. “It is like getting things practically new for a great price.”

Gibbs said the entire gym will be filled for the sale.

“[First-time shoppers] will be very surprised at the amount of clothing that we actually have that is for sale,” Gibbs said. “It always amazes me every time because the whole room will be filled with clothes, toys, shoes and it is pretty cool to watch it go up in just a few hours.”

SABRA Sanctuary won’t be the only non-profit that benefits from the sale, as others will be selected as beneficiaries after the sale ends.

“After the sale is over our council will get together, and we will vote on who will receive the money,” Gibbs said. “If we all just keep working together we can make our community better. Even though the Little Lamb Sale is a small part, I do feel like it is an important part.”
