Special trunk sale to feature new, gently used clothing, gear for kids
Posted December 8, 2011
A Raleigh mom will hold a special trunk sale this weekend featuring items that she sells on her online store Blueberry Hill Boutique.
Crissy Jeckel started selling online 2009 after being laid off from her job as a real estate paralegal. She had sold her own children's clothes on Ebay for years and made some money. So she decided to do the same thing for other moms who wanted to sell on Ebay or Craigslist, but didn't have the time or knowledge to do it.
In March 2010, she started with two clients. Now she has 17. She's sold exclusively online until this weekend when she plans to turn her bonus room into a store. You'll find new and gently used clothes, along with shoes, toys and equipment. She also sells some collectibles. Vendors from Premier Designs, Tupperware, Pampered Chef, Sassy Silhouettes and Thirty-One handbags will be there too.
The sale is 1 p.m. to 5 p.m., Saturday and Sunday, at her home, 8312 Hardeth Way in northeast Raleigh. To take a look at what Jeckel offers, go to Blueberry Hill Boutique's website.
