This isn’t your ordinary second-hand shopping experience: A quality control team ensures items being sold meet Twice Blessed Consignment Sale’s high standards. You can make purchases knowing you’re getting quality items free of rips, stains, and odors. And all the mamas said amen!
You’ll be able to browse thousands (yes, you read that right!) of gently-used baby, kid, and maternity items on sale for a fraction of department store prices. Clothing, coats, shoes, strollers, toys, games, books, nursery decor…you name, they’ve sold it!
What to Expect
Get ready to shop! With forty racks of clothing that range in size from preemie to 14/16, there’s something for every kid in your family! Children are welcome to shop, but parents should keep in mind the sale is at a church and school, so strollers may be hard to maneuver.
Please plan to arrive early! A line typically forms before the sale opens. This isn’t Twice Blessed Consignment Sale’s first rodeo: It’s the 17th-annual sale, hosted by the Shepherd’s Flock Early Learning Center.
Des Moines Moms Blog tip: We’ve seen shoppers purchase more than 100 items. For real. Serious shoppers may want to leave the kids at home so you can shop without distractions!
The sale is no longer accepting checks, so bring cash or your Visa and MasterCard debit or credit card. Another change for this year: all lanes will accept debit and credit cards to help check out be a faster experience.
Be sure to check out the dedicated media room — all books, movies, and music will be spread out for hassle-free browsing. (This will be a dream room for teachers and parents alike!)
Many items are marked 50 percent-off on Saturday! (Sellers decide if their items will be discounted.)
This is Shepherd’s Flock Early Learning Center’s one public fundraiser of the year. Shepherd’s Flock Early Learning Center is designed to facilitate the emotional, social, spiritual, cognitive and physical development of each preschool and kindergarten child. They provide a developmentally appropriate curriculum, which is implemented with sensitivity to each child’s specific cognitive style and learning space.
How the sale works: Sellers receive 70% of the proceeds from the items and the remaining 30% go to the Shepherd’s Flock Early Learning Center preschool and kindergarten programs.
More than a few members of the Des Moines Moms Blog team are planning to nab some items for our families at this sale. Join us!
