Families Save Money in Economic Hard Times
A new concept in shopping is helping families stay within budgets when it comes to outfitting their children for the year. Moderate and low income families, once priced out of the name brand markets, are now able to purchase name brand clothing and baby gear for a fraction of the retail price thanks to Hand Me Ups, LLC consignment sale event held at the old Borders Book building on Dimond (1100 E Dimond Blvd.), Anchorage, April 5th-8th 10am-8pm.
Hand Me Ups, LLC has created a consignment event where consignors receive up to 75% of the selling price on their gently used children’s & maternity items and shoppers receive steep discounts on name brand clothing, toys and baby gear. Hand Me Ups, LLC is the brain child of Kari Christman, a stay at home mom to two children.
Everyone wins at consignment events like Hand Me Ups, LLC. In addition to consignors making money and shoppers saving money, the community also wins. Each sale, Hand Me Ups, LLC works with community outreach programs and sends left over donations from the sale directly into the hands of those who need it. Hand Me Ups, LLC is currently working with CPC Pregnancy Center, Pathway, and AWAIC.
Kari Christman first heard about consignment sales when she visited her sister in Melbourne, FL and found a wonderful event that she knew her community couldn’t live without. “Being passionate about staying within our budget is why I think these sales are so great” says Kari Christman. She adds that “I knew I had to bring this event to Alaska to help all the families I know. I love that it helps people make money, save money, and support local charities all in one event.”
This is Hand Me Ups, LLC’s first sale and they already have people in the community interested in another sale in six months. The current location is large enough to hold anything related to kids, infant to teen all in one location.
Hand Me Ups, LLC is hosting their Spring 2012 Sale Event April 5th-8th at the Old Borders Books building on Dimond (1100 E Dimond Blvd.), Anchorage. Visit www.handmeupsllc.com for information on consigning, volunteering or shopping this event.
