Preview Sale for volunteers & consignors | Thursday, August 11, 4:00 p.m.-7:00 p.m.

Each year, Athens First United Methodist Church hosts a Children's Consignment Sale in our gym. This year, our sale proceeds will go to support foster care in the Athens area. Our hope is also to provide those in our community with children's clothes, school uniforms, bedding, toys, and much more, at bargain prices. Items can be donated, or you can choose to consign and receive a portion of the proceeds. 


As we begin preparing for this year's Children's Consignment Sale, we are accepting donations. As you are cleaning out closets from the school year and transitioning into summer clothes, please consider donating your gently used children’s items (we accept all seasons).

Please bring items to Room 103 and contact Mary Claire if you have any questions. Please note, we accept all seasons, from newborn to 16 years old.  


We also provide an opportunity for Consignors to sell their items. The consignors fee is $10, and you can bring as many children's items as you like. The Consignor will make 60% of all earnings, and 40% will go to support foster care in the Athens area. This is a great way to make extra money, get rid of some things you no longer have a use for, and support a great cause! All you have to do is register online to be a consignor and either pay your $10 fee online or bring in check/cash to the church office. Upon registration, consignors will receive a consignor code and tags. Mary Claire will print off the tags on card stock at AFUMC for your convenience to pick up, or email the tags directly to you. Please review the Tagging Instructions below to see how to best prepare your items for the sale. We hope join us as a consignor! 

Consignor Drop-Off will begin Tuesday, August 9, from 1:00-5:00 p.m. and will be all day on Wednesday, August 10 from 9:30-5:30 p.m. If you would like to drop off items on Wednesday evening from 5:30-7:30 p.m., email Mary Claire to make an appointment.

Volunteer | Tagging Tuesdays and more!

Tagging Tuesdays will begin Tuesday, June 14, and will be every Tuesday in June and July, in room 103! These Tuesdays are set aside for organizing, sorting, and tagging donated items, and are a great time to help with the Consignment Sale while enjoying fellowship. Please email Mary Claire if you plan to come to Tagging Tuesdays! 

We would love your help during the week of the sale! Many volunteers make the work load light; your help would be greatly appreciated! We are in need of a Set-Up Team, Receiving Team, Cashier Team, Greeters/Stock Replentishers, and a Clean Up Crew!
