Owner Jennifer Walton says that the last season's event in Fenton was a huge success, growing over 70% from the previous event, and anticipates a strong attendance this season. "We're so happy this event has continued to be a growing success in the Fenton community for the past three years", says Walton. "In addition to the funds raised for the mission trip, the event will bring a wealth of gently used children's items to the area, helping local families in tough economic times", she adds.
These consignment events are designed to give the community access to children's clothes, equipment, and toys at a fraction of the retail cost, helping many families afford 'nearly new' clothes and toys for their children. The business provides an easy way for families in today's economy to make money while selling their children's outgrown items. Consignors earn 70% of the selling price!
May 3rd will be the Facebook fan, consignor and volunteer pre-sale event. During the pre-sale there will be a shopping spree giveaway for Facebook fans only. On the 4th the event will be open to the public from 9:00am to 4:00pm and on the 5th there will be a public 1/2 price sale open from 9:00am until 4:00pm.
"A primary focus of Little Beans Jeans is to provide an avenue for local families to help each other", says Walton. "It's really cool because local moms can help each other by consigning items they no longer need and finding great deals on the items they do", she adds.
The event is also a fun destination for kids. "Similar to our last event we plan to have a bounce house available for kids to play around in while one of the parents shops", says Walton. "We really want to make this as enjoyable as possible for both parents and children", she adds.
Volunteers at the event will earn the benefit of shopping before consignors and before the event opens to the general public. "Volunteers are an integral part of this exciting event and are needed to work before, during and after", says Walton. "It's a great opportunity for teens looking to gain experience and skills in customer service and retail sales, while having a good time helping others", she adds.
Little Beans Jeans will be helping raise funds for the South Africa mission by working with local members of The Rock Church of Fenton. They will donate $1 for every flat donation made throughout the event and provide the fundraising team with a large booth to share information about their mission trip. During the pre-sale, shoppers will have the opportunity to purchase food and drinks as a donation. Other fundraising efforts include a bake sale and concessions.
Owner of Little Beans Jeans, Jennifer Walton is married with three children. She is a stay at home mom and launched Little Beans Jeans with the intention of helping local families in need.
