Everyone likes an easy hunt for a bargain, and one new place to find it is at the Cheepers Keepers Consignment Sale. It starts the March 19 and will be ending on March 27 at the National Guard Armory located at 1501 State Route 121 in Murray.

The drop off for clothes and toys began Tuesday.

Jennifer Fuqua, a single stay-at-home mother, is running the sale for the first year.

She decided to start this sale because one of her children had medical issues that caused him to grow out of clothes at a fast rate, making it more expensive to take care of her kids. With money getting tight she understood that other people in the community may have similar problems.

The sale is a way to help out others in the community with a better deal on children’s clothing, and keeping the money flowing in the community keeps everything local, Fuqua said.

The consignment sale is looking for children’s clothing in sizes all the way up to juniors as well as maternity clothes. Those giving away clothes to the sale also make a profit when their clothes are sold or they can donate clothing.

“I wanted to do this so other people can shop and find a bargain,” Fuqua said.

Fuqua understands the need for bargains for parents and has clothes her little ones have outgrown. She is asking other people to come and get rid of their old clothing they no longer need to help make an easier jump start for new families as well.

She hopes to continue doing this and make it into a semiannual event. Fuqua has considered a second sale to occur during the summer before school starts up again.

Maternity clothing is being offered as well, making the sale not just about the kids. This is a good way to get rid of useless maternity clothing and make a profit from it.

“People come from Mayfield, Paris and from around Murray,” Fuqua said.

Fuqua hopes to have a great turnout for the first of the semiannual sales.
