The SB Consignment Sale

Yes, it’s another year well-blogged, so it’s time to celebrate with sales, friends and wine while giving back! We are THRILLED to announce our 3rd annual women’s high-end consignment sale with charity partner The Women’s Fund.

We are just starting to take consignors. Keep reading for more details.

Back to the sale.  It will be held at this beautiful, historic home located at 3821 Whitland Ave.

 

3821 Whitland Avenue

Here are some examples of what to expect at our sale:

 

It was over $3K new and sold here for $200!

Kick off the sale with early bird shopping on Thursday night, February 23rd from 6 – 9 PM.  An invitation to this much anticipated night will be sent out to our email subscribers in a couple weeks – go ahead and mark your calendars!

Thursday night’s party tickets are $75 a piece, with proceeds directly benefiting The Women’s Fund. With this ticket, you’ll have early bird access to shop from an incredible array of like-new, heavily discounted high-end clothing, shoes, jewelry, handbags and more! 100 consignees will participate in this year’s sale. Wine and desserts will be on hand to make the evening festive and fun!

If you missed last year’s party, let’s just say it all boiled down to one word – FUN! I’m not sure we’ve ever been around so many giddy women thrilled with their incredible purchases, charitable giving, and tremendous savings. A good time was had by all. And, with a 6:00 start time, women start lining up for first dibs as early as 5:30PM.

A perfect condition Prada skirt sold at the higher end of the price range: $300. It was in absolute perfect condition it was in made someone very happy. Someone else quickly grabbed an Oscar de la Renta dress priced at just $25!

Be prepared for spontaneous group-changing rooms as women seem to try on clothes EVERYWHERE! For this reason, this event is WOMEN ONLY.

February 24th & 25th will be open to the public with a suggested $5 donation at the door for The Women’s Fund.

Hours are Friday: 9 AM – 6 PM and Saturday 8 AM – 12 PM.  Cash or Check ONLY.

So pretty

Any rules for the attendees? YES! Be kind to our volunteers, the clothes and each other. Not that we think you’d behave any other way…. but just by putting that into words, mean ol’ so-and-so (we all know one) will decide this is not her gig!

Would you like to consign? Great! Email our sale coordinator, Libby Page, and let her know that you need a number. She will reply later NEXT WEEK with your number, as well as the rules for consigning with us. [email protected]

Clothes from all seasons are sold here. Pictured are clothes from designers Milly, DVF, Etcetera, Worth, Nanette Lepore, Theory, and Marni.

We will only be accepting clothing in like-new condition and from higher-end labels. Not to sounds snotty or haughty, but you know what we mean. This event raises much-needed funds for Nashville-based charities that help women and children, so we need this to be successful, and we do that by only accepting great things. Look over your items with a critical eye: like new condition, current fashions, boutique-brand clothing. Some things slipped by last year, but this year we won’t hesitate to pull something from the sale if it doesn’t meet our standards!

Spread the word and come shop! Many of the items will still have tags on them! Lucky you!

Shoes galore! 2010 Sale.

We love getting local designer Suzanne Sevier skirts, as they sell really well and we're all for supporting local business!

We love the jewelry we get. This piece was a Margaret Ellis necklace. This is the perfect place to re-sell your jewelry from local jewelers, as the audience all understands the quality and will LOVE it!

We love getting beautiful, stylish, on trend suits. If you need to wear a suit to work, or to church, or are always wishing you had one for that certain luncheon, this is the place to find one!

 We hope you make plans to join us.  It really is an amazing experience!
