One of the state’s largest consignment sale events gives families a chance to earn money and save money on thousands of items for children, while the event helps raise money and collects food donations for Second Harvest Heartland.
The Munchkin Markets Spring consignment sales will be open to the public the Anoka County Fairgrounds May 19-20.
Consignors can earn 70 to 80 percent of the selling price of items they no longer need for their children at Munchkin Markets sales. Parents can also save money by purchasing the pre-owned and new items their children need.
“We expect over 150 sellers bringing thousands of items to our sale,” said Kristal Belisle, mother of four and owner of Munchkin Markets, LLC. “It’s a great way to sell the items your children have outgrown and to pick up things for their next stage in life at reasonable prices.”
On Saturday the sale is open from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Sunday from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. There is a $1 admission fee on Saturday, or shoppers can get free admission by bringing a non-perishable food donation for Second Harvest Heartland. There is no admission fee on Sunday and many items will be half price. Plenty of free parking is available.
At the spring 2011 Munchkin Markets sales, over 3,000 pounds of food were collected and the goal is to double that amount this spring.
Munchkin Markets is also providing fund-raising opportunities for several Twin Cities schools, MOMS clubs and the ECFE programs in Anoka-Hennepin.
