The world is turning green with environment. My favorite part of the sudden earth conscious tendencies? Consigning! This is when people sell their perfectly usable items that they no longer have a need for to other people who are in the market for such an item. It allows families to make a little cash, and it has brought coolness back to thrift shopping. And it’s great for the environment since less things are ending up in the landfill before their usefulness is used up. There are consignment stores popping up all over the place. Sales to the public (like the Just Between Friends sale a couple weeks ago) are becoming more popular. And now, another event is coming down the pike.
Worth WeeCycling is holding their Fall/Winter Event on September 10th – 12th at the Santa Rosa Vet’s Building (across from the fairgrounds). The children and maternity consignment event is geared towards expecting and young families. It’s a wonderful way for cash-strapped families to make some money (and I understand there is still time to consign your items!), and it’s a great way for families to meet the needs of their growing household.
Best yet? Worth WeeCycling will be helping to raise funds for a very special little boy. 4 year old Nathan Wagner has been battling brain cancer since February. After brain surgery, radiation, and more surgery, he is now in the midst of a 6 month cycle of chemo. As you can imagine, the family has been placed under a large financial strain as they battle Nathan’s cancer together, paying out of pocket for expenses not covered by insurance. Worth WeeCycling is helping the Wagner family through consignment donations.
“The family would greatly appreciate any donations and they can be dropped off at Economy Plumbing – 1058 North Dutton Ave. Santa Rosa, CA 95401 between 7:30 and 4:00 weekdays until September 6th or at My Gym.”
