Cash In On Your Kid Clutter At The EcoKids’ Children’s Consignment Spring Sale!

Posted on February 6, 2018

Johnstown, PA (Feb. 5, 2018) – Looking for some extra cash? You can earn money from the outgrown children’s clothes and toys sitting around your house. Register today to consign at the semi-annual EcoKids’ Children’s Consignment Sale on March 15, 16 and 17, 2018. The sale takes place at The Learning Lamp, 2025 Bedford Street, Johnstown, PA. This is a well-attended sale with space for a limited number of consignors. Sellers earn 50% of the sale of their items. Remaining proceeds support free after school programs for local kids.

IMG_20170922_123121904Want to consign, but don’t have the time? New this sale, the Mom’s Helper Service can help! With a small supply and service fee of $25, we’ll enter, price and tag all your items for you. A limited number of Mom’s Helper Service spots are available.

“The Children’s Consignment Sale gives parents an opportunity to clean out their kids’ closets and cash in on the stuff they no longer use or need. By adding the Mom’s Helper Service, we hoping to help out busy parents that don’t have the time to get their items ready on their own,” said Kerri IMG_20170919_133229888Belardi, director of communications at The Learning Lamp. “Registration is now open and we are gearing up for a fantastic sale, with dozens of consignors already signed up and ready to participate.”

The sale accepts gently used kid’s apparel, shoes, toys, furniture, baby equipment, Easter outfits, swimwear and much more! Consignors earn 50 percent of the sale price of their items, and Mom’s Helper Service consignors earn 40 percent, with the remaining amount going to support The Learning Lamp’s free After School Outreach Programs in Moxham, Oakhurst and Coopersdale. This program provides students with a quality after school program where they receive homework help, a healthy meal and participate in character-building activities.

The deadline to consign is Monday, March 5, 2018. Registering before midnight on Wednesday, February 21, 2018 qualifies consignors for an early bird discount and waives the $5 registration fee.
