Moncure Clothing Sale Only 1 Week Away!!!

Friday, March 9th and
Saturday, March 10th

You price it.  You tag it.  We’ll sell it for you and mail you a check.  

Visit our Consignment site to turn your unwanted items into cash.

Why consign with us?
Consign for CashThe Moncure Elementary Clothing Sale has been a community tradition for over 36 years!  This is the longest running and largest children’s clothing sale in Stafford. All of the proceeds from the Clothing Sale go to benefit the students of Moncure Elementary School and any items not picked up will be donated to local charities. You can turn your unwanted items into cash & support a great cause.

We have worked hard to make consigning as easy as possible.  We’re Moms and Consignors too, so we’re constantly trying to improve our sale, while maintaining everything you love about us.  Our online system is easy to use and you have until Thursday, March 8th at noon to enter your items (you can print your tags anytime).

What makes us different?
  • We have a small ($.50) minimum, so you have more flexibility when you price your items.  You don’t have to try to find several pieces of clothing in the same size to justify a high minimum.
  • Although we have clothing racks if you want to hang your items, most of our clothes are laid out on tables.  If you don’t have the time (or energy) to hang everything, you don’t have to.Volunteer
  • If you volunteer for 2 shifts (4 hours) you’ll earn 80% of all your sales.  That’s the highest in the area.  You can also shop our Volunteer-Only Pre-Sale on Friday, March 9th from 8pm-10pm as long you work at least one shift.
  • After our Consignor pick-up on Saturday, March 10th from 11am-12pm, we sell everything that’s left at 50% off.  It offers you one last chance to make some money on your items before they’re donated.  Please take note that there is NO additional consignor pick-up period after the Discount Sale.
  • Many of our Consignors use our sale as an opportunity to pay it forward in our community.  Our sale enables the less fortunate in our area the opportunity to shop for quality clothing at an affordable price.  No child in Stafford should ever go without shoes or a coat!Interested in Volunteering?  Sign-up early to get the time slot and job you want.  We need your help for another successful sale!  Click here to learn more about volunteering at the sale.

Please visit our consignment website to start entering your items now.  For more information about consigning with us, click here.

Tell a FriendWe’d be thrilled and THANKFUL if you would tell your freinds about the Moncure Children’s Clothing Sale. Share the Sale with your family, friends, co-workers, church members, teachers, play group, moms clubs, athletic teams etc. Please help us spread the word about our sale!!!

Just want to get rid of your stuff?  As always, we accept donations leading up to the sale and *NEW* this sale you can also drop-off items at the school anytime during  the sale.  We welcome clothing, shoes, accessories, handbags, books, linens, and small household items (no furniture).  We have a partnership with Savers who pays non-profit organizations for their donated items, which means more money for Moncure.
