There's a new consignment sale in town and this one is for tweens and teens.
Teens Going Green will offer tweens, teens and their parents a place to sell and buy gently used clothes. Bee Persson, one of the founders, tells me that she and co-founder Jenny Kolb have shopped at many of the consignment sales in the area over the years. But in recent years, they've been unable to find clothes for their growing kids.
"Personally, I have gotten tired of sorting through a ton of stuff I already have or no longer need," Persson tells me.
Persson has a nine-year-old daughter who is the size of some middle schoolers and two younger sons. Kolb has a 14-year-old son and two daughters, ages 12 and nine. The two figure they'll need teen clothes for at least another decade.
"Most 13- to 17-year-olds don't really want to shop with crying babies while tripping over toddler toys," she says. "We decided to create our own opportunity for a more intimate shopping experience for teens on a budget."
Teens Going Green is scheduled for Aug. 5 to Aug. 7 at the Cary Masonic Lodge, 1142 SE Maynard Road (around the corner from Cary Towne Center). The public sale schedule is 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Aug. 6 and noon to 4 p.m. Aug. 7 when some items are half off. Consignors and volunteers can shop early.
