After a 3-year hiatus, Berkshire County’s original tent sale of children’s clothing and accessories is back!
The Children’s Attic Consignment Sale returns Saturday and Sunday, Sept. 10 and 11, and sellers are invited to sign up to participate.
“Now is the time to sign up as a seller, especially for anyone who may have been holding onto their children’s clothing, toys and accessories for the past couple of years,” says Mary Feuer, director of CHP Family Services. “We expect this will be a big, fun, and lively event this year.”
The county’s longest-running sale of children’s clothing and accessories was on hiatus during Covid-19. The September sale is for fall and winter items only and takes place at CHP’s main campus, 444 Stockbridge Road, Great Barrington.
CHP has adopted a new system for consignment sellers wishing to participate, and the details and a seller’s packet can be found on the CHP website. Sellers who have previously participated are asked to sign up using the new system.
The seller’s packet details what items are acceptable for sale, how to track and tag items, and instructions for selling toys and accessories. Children’s clothing up to size 16 is accepted.
In addition to seeking consignment sellers, CHP is also seeking volunteers to help with the event. Volunteers are eligible for a special early-bird pre-sale Friday, Sept. 9, 5-7 p.m.
Children’s Attic is a longstanding CHP tradition for CHP Family Services, which provides programming, playgroups, and education for families with young children in Southern Berkshire. Proceeds from the consignment sale are shared between sellers (70%) and CHP Family Services (30%).
