The Brandermill Church Children's Consignment Sale is held twice a year and is part of the church's missions as well as a ministry in itself by helping families purchase affordable, gently used clothing, toys and baby items. The sale is a blessing to our community as it helps local charities and families in need as well as provide a way to recycle our children's gently used items.
SHOP WITH US
Come shop for quality, gently used children's clothing, toys, infant items, shoes, books, games, DVDs, furniture, costumes, and so much more! This is a HUGE sale with items from over 100 consignors. Doors open at 8am (there is always a line- come early!) and close temporarily at 11am. Return to shop with us from 12:30-2pm and receive 1/2 off designated items.
We accept cash and check only at this time. 20% or more of all proceeds benefit various community charities and the missions of The Brandermill Church. Additionally, designated items at the close of the sale will be donated to local charities.
All sales are final.
SUPPORTING THE COMMUNITY
The Brandermill Church Children's Consignment Sale impacts the community in a variety of ways. Since its inception over a decade ago, the sale has touched the lives of hundreds of families in need through direct support, in the form of gift certificates at the sale, and indirect support through charities who receive financial and/or physical donations.
Gift Certificates to Families in Need
Each year, BCCS provides approximately $3,000 in free gift certificates to families who have difficulty providing necessary clothing and equipment for their children. These gift certificates allow families to come shop our sale and select those needed items.
Financial Donations to Charities and Missions
A percentage of the purchases from the sale goes to support the mission of other non-profits and church-based missions. These charities include or have included Embrace Richmond, CCHASM, Shalom Farms, Good Samaritan Ministries, VEFC, Daughters of Zelophehad, and church supported missions, youth group mission trips, minister's discretionary fund, and TBC Preschool based scholarships.
Physical Donations to Charities and Missions
At the close of the sale, consignors may choose to donate any leftover items they do not wish to take back with them. Countless donations of clothing, books, equipment and toys are distributed to a number of different local and international organizations. These include, but are not limited to Friends of Barnabas, Chesterfield County Social Services, local Coat Drives and Scouting projects hospitals, foster families, and van loads to the Gilpin Court Clothing Closet, Pass It On, New Beginnings Clothing Closet, Victory Tabernacle Clothing Closet, Agape's Door, and Mercy Mall to name just a few.
