Shoppers at the Ladies of Charity consignment sale are not only picking up great bargains, but they are also supporting aid for the needy.
The proceeds from the Spring/Summer Clothing Consignment Sale, which began on Friday, April 8, and will continue through Saturday, May 14, are used to support the efforts of the Ladies of Charity’s Emergency Assistance Office.
People in need can receive food and aid with rent, water and natural gas bills through the Emergency Assistance Office. Additionally, they can pick up clothes at the office one day a week.
The requests for assistance are increasing due to rising costs, the COVID pandemic and unemployment, said Margie Druffel, president of the Ladies of Charity Nashville Chapter. “It’s just a global problem.”
By shopping at the consignment sale, people will help others, “and you’ll look snappy,” Druffel said.
Proceeds from the consignment sale also support the Ladies of Charity scholarship program, Christmas basket program that last year provided 780 food boxes to those in need during the holidays, and other outreach programs.
The Spring/Summer Consignment Sale is at the Ladies of Charity Thrift Shop at 2216 State St. in Nashville. The hours for the sale will be 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Friday, April 8, and thereafter 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Mondays and 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tuesdays through Saturdays. The sale will be closed on Good Friday, April 15.
The sale features used and new clothing and accessories for ladies and men. A second consignment sale, featuring fall and winter items, is held in the fall each year.
The shop is set up “boutique” style making shopping easy and enjoyable. The racks are restocked every day with new items. Jewelry and “next to new” shoes will be added the second and third week of the sale, and the final week everything is half price.
