Indy Kids Sale is celebrating its 10th anniversary of its spring sale at the Hamilton County Fairgrounds, 2003 Pleasant St., Noblesville. The sale runs March 12 through 14, providing high quality baby and children’s items at greatly discounted prices.
Owner Lori Chandler works year-round preparing for sales and spreading the word.
“It’s a great way for consignors to clear out their stuff and make some money, and for shoppers to purchase some good quality items,” she said.
The event started in 2005, with 15 families selling items in the front yard of a home. The goal was to provide a way for families to make some money back on their purchases. Toys and equipment are sold at about 50 percent of retail value, while clothing is marked down 80-90 percent. Chandler expects to see 350 families sell 50,000 items to about 3,000 shoppers. Shoppers can choose to make a contribution of $1 to $3, which contributes one of the sale items to the local organizations.
“It’s really a great way to involve the community, benefit the community, and the icing on the cake is being able to support the ministries and organizations that we’re able to support through the process,” Chandler said.
