Los Alamos, NM ‘”‘” The Little Forest Playschool annual Fall Resale will be held on Saturday, October 23 from 9:00 am to 12:00 pm at the Crossroads Bible Church at 97 East Road in Los Alamos.
“The new location will be a real convenience,” says Chair Vivian Westfall. “This is a big event and we’ll have room to expand and spread out.”
Westfall says the Spring Resale had 120 volunteers and she expects that many for the Fall Resale. “It takes volunteers to make this event happen, and the community wants it to happen,” she says.
Volunteers are needed on both Friday, Oct. 22 and Saturday, October 23, to help with setup, sorting, checkout and cleanup. Volunteer sign up is now available online at littleforestplayschool.org/resale and at the school, 3880 Villa Street during office hours.
The benefits of volunteering include early shopping privileges on Friday, the evening prior to the public sale.
The school hosts a Resale in the Spring and in the Fall, so that shoppers can find infant and children’s items for the season. The Fall Resale will feature infant and children’s clothing (up to size 14), footwear, swimwear, and sports gear. There are also toys, games, books, CDs and DVDs for children. The Fall Resale inventory will also include Women’s Wear and accessories in the “Just for Moms” room. Other sale items include baby furniture, including cribs, dressers, changing tables, playpens, high chairs, car seats, strollers, and other nursery and toddler items.
Anyone can sell children’s items at the sale by going to the resale website and clicking on Seller Info for guidelines and inventory sheets and tags. All sellers need a seller ID number, which they can get by either e-mailing the resale chair at email@example.com or calling Daisy at 672-9859. Tags and pins may also be purchased at the school for a nominal fee.
Sellers earn 70% of their sales, and the balance benefits children’s programs at Little Forest Playschool. Items may also be donated to Little Forest by dropping off at the school anytime before Oct. 20. For more information about the Resale, visit www.littleforestplayschool.org/resale.
