Northern Virginia Consignment Sale This Weekend

There are a lot of consignment sales in my area each spring and fall, and, knowing my love of bargain shopping, friends often ask if I am attending them.  Actually, though, I usually only shop one sale: Catholic Consignments in Ashburn, VA.

For me, it is simplest to have on sale where I consign, volunteer, and shop, and Catholic Consignments is one of the biggest sales in the area.  Since I volunteer, I get to shop early and get a great selection on the items on my list.  Depending on which shift I work, I often shop again at the half-price sale or the Dollar Dash, where I get to pick up extra fun things for next to nothing.  Thus I am able to accomplish the vast majority of my kids' shopping in one long but fun day, and I am done until next season.

I always say that consignment sales are a win-win type of event.  Consignors benefit from selling their items; shoppers benefit from the great deals; and the organization putting on the sale makes a cut as well.  However, Catholic Consignments is the only sale I know that has another winner: needy people in the community.  All the money raised from the sale goes to Divine Mercy Outreach.  I just looked over their newsletter for the first time and was amazed at all the services this volunteer organization provides - everything from rent to utilities to beds to clothes and food for the needy.

So now I know you can't wait to shop at Catholic Consignments this weekend, so here is the info:

    I didn't make it to that one, but I did try Classy Consignments in Manassas since they were open during the week. I got a bunch of clothes for my twin girls and was happy with the quality.


Thanks for commenting. I love to hear your feedback!
