CAMOMC Children’s Consignment Sale Is March 1-2

Tuesday, February 12, 2013

The Spring 2013 CAMOMC Children’s Consignment Sale will take place on Friday, March 1, and Saturday, March 2.

The sale will be at the East Ridge Community Center, 1517 Tombras Ave. #2. (Turn at light #8 off of Ringgold Road). Everyone is welcome to shop for gently-used items on Friday from 10 a.m.-7 p.m and Saturday, ½ price on select items, from 8 a.m.-1 p.m.  

Children’s clothing will be offered from preemie to kids size. Baby Gear, shoes, toys, maternity items, household goods and more. One does not have to have multiple birth children to shop the sale or to consign with the organization. 

Proceeds from the sale benefit local charities as well as the Chattanooga Area Mothers of Multiples club. The CAMOMC, a non-profit chapter of the National Organization of Mothers of Twins, Inc., is dedicated to the support and education of mothers and expectant mothers of multiple birth children. Last year CAMOMC facilitated the renovation of the Ronald McDonald House teen recreation room with some of the proceeds from consignment sales.

CAMOMC is accepting consignors and vendors through Feb. 25. Consignors who are not members of CAMOMC receive 80% on each item sold.  At the end of the sale, unwanted items are donated to a local charity.
