In recent years, kids’ consignment sales have gained popularity as parents look for ways to save money. A great consignment sale here in Hendricks County that continues to gain momentum is the Here We Grow Again sale at the Hendricks County 4-H Fairgrounds & Conference Complex in Danville, Indiana. here we grow 5 The sale on May 16-18 will be the third sale here in Hendricks County. Katie Awwad and Kori McCallie started this sale in 2012 after they realized they shared a common bond of saving money on kids clothing and toys and there was not a consignment in Hendricks County. So they started a local Here We Grow Again franchise. Here We Grow Again - Hendricks County Fairgrounds - Expo Hall - May 16-18 Shoppers will be able to look through more than 25,000 items that include infant, toddler, kids, junior and maternity clothing as well as baby equipment. This sale will offer just spring/summer clothing. They will have another sale in the fall for fall/winter clothing. This sale also benefits charity. After the sale, consignors have the option of donating their items that did not sale to Jordan’s Place, a local non-profit organization that provides resources for foster families. You will find lots of baby toys and gear. Katie shared a few tips with me on how to make the most of your shopping experience. Tips for Shoppers
  • Bring a list. The best way to stay on a budget is to make a list of what your child needs. With more than 25,000 items, the sale can be overwhelming.
  • Shop early for the best bargains. If you can get your hands on a presale pass for Wednesday, May 15, you will get to look through the inventory before the general public. How do you get a pre-sale pass? We will give away passes to three lucky readers of this blog. Pre-sale passes also will be given to teachers, military families, volunteers and consignors.
