Shoppers gear up for First Baptist's Kidsignment Sale
Shoppers are expected to start forming a line out the door early for the annual Pass It On Kidsignment Sale this week at Aiken's First Baptist Church.
Sale organizer Connie Kinney said, as in the past, she anticipates to see at least 300 people waiting in line on Friday when the doors open at 9 a.m.
The sale will be held on Friday from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m., and on Saturday from 8 a.m. to noon.
Shoppers are eager to take advantage of the sale which offers new or gently used clothes, toys, games, furniture, home decor, sports equipment and more for ages infant to teenager at deeply discounted prices.
“There will be 100 racks filled with items,” Kinney said.
In addition to prices being roughly 70 to 90 percent off retail, there will also be a $1 bargain room. On Saturday, items will be half price.
“On Saturday, it's (the sale) like an onion that gets peeled away. There are things there that you didn't get to see the first time on Friday,” Kinney said.
More than 200 consignors and 120-130 volunteers team up to make the sale possible every year, which attracts at least 1,000 attendees.
The church is located at 120 Chesterfield St. N.
Cash, checks and credit cards will all be accepted as forms of payment.
A portion of the sale's proceeds will benefit First Baptist's youth ministry.
Consignors are still being accepted.
