The Indy Kids Sale, a semi-annual consignment sale, will take place from Sept. 15-17 at the Hamilton County Fairgrounds at 2003 Pleasant St., Noblesville. The sale will help 400 families in central Indiana sell their gently used children’s items, for ages newborn to teen.
Lori Chandler,owner of Indy Kids Sale, said the three-day event will have 50,000 to 60,000 items available for sale at 75 to 90 percent off the retail price.
Indy Kids Sale was founded in 2005 making this the eleventh year for the event.
Chandler said the Indy Kids Sale not only helps sell children’s items but helps families in need with the nonprofit the Good Samaritan Network of Hamilton County.
“After the event is over the consigners have a choice to donate their items that do not sell,” Chandler said.
Nancy Chance, founder and executive director of the Good Samaritan Network of Hamilton County, said her group takes the donated items, sorts them and gives them to other organizations that help those in need.
Chance, who founded the Good Samaritan Network of Hamilton County in 1980, is grateful for the help of the Indy Kids Sale and other organizations that do similar work.
“It’s phenomenal. It makes the difference on whether we are able to help families in this county,” Chance said. “It’s very hard to get cash donations, and it’s very hard to find this kind of quality in products that are donated.”
Chance said donated items that are left over at the end of the year are given to families at Christmas.
The sale runs from 9a.m. to 6p.m. Sept. 15-16, and from 9 a.m. to 1p.m. Sept. 17. Admission and parking is free.
