About Seeds and Sprouts Kids
Founding partners, Sally Ann and Jamaica have 7 young children between them and about half that many minutes of free time in any given day. That said, these mamas LOVE consignment sales…the thrill of finding a great bargain, the fun of spending time with other frugal-minded parents, and let’s face it, any way to save cash in the midst of child rearing is not only welcomed, but essential in this day and age.
Despite their love for the sale, Jamaica and Sally Ann felt that no matter which sale they went to, something (or some things) were missing. They dreamed of what it’d be like to create a consignment community where both the consignors and shoppers felt valued and welcomed, and they laughed over some of the out-of-the-box ideas they had. But what motivated them to actually launch Seeds and Sprouts Kids was hearing about the crisis in the WNC foster care community and realizing that a new consignment sale business could be a huge blessing and benefit to this critical part of the WNC community.
Benefiting the Foster Community
At Seeds and Sprouts Kids, licensed foster care families in WNC are offered an opportunity to shop for free through unsold items marked as “donate” at the end of the sale. After this shopping time, any remaining items go directly to local foster care closets. Additionally, Seeds and Sprouts Kids donates a portion of its profits back to the WNC foster care community. When a foster family gets called to accept the placement of a new child in their home, they often have a day’s notice or less. Closets, like the ones Seeds and Sprouts Kids assists in filling, are essential to helping those families adequately prepare for their placements.
With this partnership in place, any items that our consignors opt to mark as “donations” that do not ultimately sell during the presale or public sale dates will go directly to support WNC foster care families and foster care children. Additionally, items that we cannot accept during drop-off due to reasons aside from safety/recall can be immediately donated upon consignor request.
Please consider selecting the "donation" option for all items that do not sell; it’s an incredibly simple way to make a profoundly impactful difference in the lives of children who have so little right in our community.
The mission of Seeds and Sprouts Kids is to be a Christ-centered, high-quality, best-value consignment sale dedicated to benefiting the local WNC foster community through donations and incentives for foster care families in our area.
Let each of you look not only to his own interests but also to the interests of others.
How are We Different?
We know as moms and dads to littles, you have all got about 19 items too many on your to-do list, and sometimes, that means that as much as you would LOVE to make some cash on the side by consigning those items your kids no longer need, the idea of all the prep work makes your head spin. Never fear! We’ve got you covered: let US price, tag, and display the items for YOU! You can just sit back and watch your sales climb and collect your earnings at the end.
Valet tagging! It is the best thing since, well, it is just the best thing. Truly. Drop off your clothing items, toys, gear, etc at one of our designated valet tagging locations and let us do the rest. If this gets you excited, check out details.
Now we know there are plenty of you out there who would never dream of relinquishing tagging control; classic tag entry is still available for all those who prefer to stick with what they know best. We absolutely get it. If it's not broken, don't fix it, right? Visit our registration page for all the details and get tagging!
When we began discussing the concept of Seeds and Sprouts Kids, we placed a major focus on establishing a community of consignors that local parents wanted to be a part of. Making that vision into a reality is only possible when consignors, shoppers, and team members feel welcomed, appreciated, and truly enjoy their time participating in all Seeds and Sprouts Kids events.
Developing community will continue to be at the forefront of Seeds and Sprouts Kids' decisions and plans for the future. We hope you'll join our consigning community and come along for the journey with us!
Consigning for a Cause
We are far more than an upgraded and updated take on pop-up consignment events. In creating Seeds and Sprouts Kids, we wanted to ensure our event would not only provide the consignors and shoppers in our community with a welcoming, fun, and high-quality sale where they could find fabulous deals for their littles, but also invest further into the greater WNC community. Our team is passionate about WNC foster care, and our sale directly benefits this area of crisis in WNC.
All items that our consignors opt to mark as “donate” that do not sell during the presale or public sale dates will go directly to support WNC foster care families and foster care children. Additionally, items that we cannot accept during drop-off due to reasons aside from safety/recall can be immediately donated upon consignor request. We also contribute a percentage of our profits to organizations benefiting the WNC foster community.
At Seeds and Sprouts Kids, we believe in Jesus, quality, fun, and paying it forward! For further details on how we are partnering with WNC foster care, please email us at email@example.com
